South Carolina Pulled Pork Nachos

I love BBQ. One of my favorite pulled porks is Carolina style which has a vinegar sauce. (I am still doing research on which is my favorite.) My problem is that since it’s only my wife and I, slow cooking 8 pounds of animal is not a cost-effective dinner plan. So since I wanted some pulled pork, I I found some pork country ribs and decided to give those a try. Now, I put them on smoker for a couple of hours then finished cooking them in some vinegar and BBQ sauce on the stove to get them tender. But a slow cooker will do the job nicely. Since we are visiting South Carolina, I thought I would use pimento cheese instead of the “normal” cheese. Red and green onions give the dish a bite. I hope you like it.
