    Cheese...What's your favorite with pulled pork Samies?

    I am feeding the crew on Monday. I always do a BBQ cookout for the crew to kick the year off. Some like to throw some cheese on their pulled pork sandwiches. With pumpkin season just around the corner, this is always a great way for us to get some extra calories in before the big harvest. Just looking for some ideas on what types of cheeses are your favorites. Thanks guys/gals.

    Here's a few pics from the harvest last year.

    I'd personally wouldn't want cheese on a pulled pork sandwich; that said, take a page from Arby's and go with muenster. It's a good cheese for smoked foods. Smoked provolone would also work well.


      i use provolone. i don't care for munster, it's a bland nothing cheese in my eyes

        I agree Stevehtn , good meunster (to me) is yummy and has character, but it is mild. Like any cheese, you can get some cheap brands that are bland. Often famous national brands, even though they may tout themselves as old world and premium and such, aren't top notch. Cheese is a kraft like wine making.

        Huskee, you must have Kraft Mac n Cheese on your mind. Wine making is a craft, not a kraft! Thanks for a laugh this morning! And I would go with Swiss, just to be different.

        Yno I like to blame autocorrect

      I love cheese, but I don't put it on pulled pork sandwiches. So, my answer is none. No cheese on pulled pork.


        I dont use cheese on pulled pork either... BUT Provolone would be my choice if I was gonna put some on.


          If i had to put cheese on I'd probably go with a jalapeño or habanero pepper jack cheese.

            I agree with Dr ROK. If any go with the hot pepper type cheese.

          I've done provolone and loved it. But like many I tend to not use cheese often with pulled pork. I also did pulled pork nachos once and used cheddar and it rocked. But on sammies I'd personally go with provolone. It adds little to the flavor, but I think that's the point in my book. It just adds that 'there's-cheese-on-this' texture.

            Exactly. If you're gonna have cheese on pulled pork, it should be there for the texture, not the flavor. My .02

          No cheese on pulled pork or beef sammiches. A touch of Que sauce and tangy Slaw.

            I'm with you, Ernest! One question would be" which Q sauce"?

          I've been know to throw a slice of sharp cheddar on a reheated pulled pork sammy.

            Yep me too. Tillamook.

          Let's see hummm cheese on pulled pork? I would go with Pepper Jack cheese with some slices of Jalopeno peppers and a splash of hot sauce. And a good COLD brew to chase it with.


            Thanks all, I also don't use cheese but some people last year were asking for cheese, so I thought that I would just have it as an option.

              I've been having fun using the griddle when reheating pulled pork or brisket. Heat it up on there, put some sauce on that puppy, get a sizzle going. MUST is a well-buttered bun, nice and crispy on said griddle. And Smoked Gouda to melt right on the top after I've got the sweet-sauce infused meat all nice and carmelized on the griddle...

              OK, you caught me...I didn't have a pic of the Smoked Gouda ones. But this shreaded Colby Jack is really good too!

              Now I'm hungry!
