I'd rather not eat the pulled pork sandwich if it doesn't have slaw on it. I would just eat the meat and leave the bun.

I never had a BBQ sandwich without slaw on it until I moved here to Florida. They looked at me as if I had 2 heads when I requested it the first time, lol!
I like Missouri style BBQ! There's a good MO BBQ joint a mere 3 miles from where I live called The Bear Pit.:-)

I can agree with that. I'd rather wait til I could get slaw.

I always eat it that way too. DH eats it on the side.
Slaw on BBS is NOT a Southern thing, nor is it particularly common. Slaw on BBQ I think is a Carolina thing. I don't like it myself, on the sandwhich or on the side.
Differentiating BBQ by southern region is like diferentiating southern accents. You don't understand the variety until you live here.
Mustard/vinegar sauce - Carolinas
Ketchup Based sauce - Mid South
BBQ brisket - Texas
BBQ ribs - mid south
and so on and so on....

Trust me, I am from memphis...

I live in North Carolina.

Thanks for the primer on bbq sauces, which I already knew, but you missed a few. The "Carolinas" is not all mustard/vinegar based, there's Eastern Carolina, Western Carolina, and South Carolina sauces..all different.

Serve it to me with slaw and I'll refuse it. Slaw ruins bbq for me. I can't think of a worse pairing.

Mayo is for BLT's. Not BBQ. Why not Maull it and top it with good slaw?
