    Left over pulled pork

    We did a 10 pound pork butt on Friday night and as always trying to get through the left overs.
    Considering trying some type of warm po boy style sandwich on the Blackstone.
    Any suggetions on add ins to dress it up a bit?
    Considering outside the norm.
    Maybe an asian stir fry oil or perhaps a touch of bacon grease to change the taste a bit from the typical BBQ sauce.
    Suggestions appreciated.

    I use a bacon bbq sauce. King’s Hawaiian brand. Yes the bread guys. Really good on PP. Add some raw onion and sliced dill pickles. A bomb of a sammie!


      We used a Carolina mustard bbq sauce on our last leftover pulled pork. It was very good and a nice change of pace. That coupled with some fresh coleslaw to put on the sandwich was great.

        +1 on the coleslaw, a staple on our pulled pork

      You really have to decide the texture you want. If you go moist, mix in some of your favored BBQ sauce and a little beer, put it on the low setting and cover with a pan. I always use a little beer because it allows me to drink the rest. It will stay nice and moist. You can go carnitas style. Cook up some bacon first, and pull. Let the griddle cool down for awhile and cut up the bacon. Reheat the griddle to medium heat and put on the pulled pork. Throw in the pieces of bacon. You could do a Cuban sauce - garlic, vinegar, lime juice, olive oil, onion, a little hot sauce, salt and pepper, oregano, dice peppers and cilantro. Serve it on a roll with sliced dill pickles and a mustard sauce

        I like beer

      Pulled pork pizza! Your favorite bbq sauce , then a bit of whatever cheese you like, then pulled pork, onions, bell peppers and/or jalapenos, and a bit of par cooked and diced bacon or a sausage of your liking, topped with cheese. Really tasty.

        I’ve done that. Yummy. Also pulled pork quesadillas and omelets. Lots of different ways to use left over pulled pork

      Try maybe frying it up like carnitas. At our house we make a lot of pulled pork mac&cheese, pulled pork nachos, and pulled pork southwestern eggrols with leftovers.

        I wuz gonna say carnitas...

      There is a good recipe under cast iron cooking on this web site for SW pulled pork that I make and like. It is like a chilli like dish with beans and sausage. I have also made it left over brisket as well.


        Pulled pork, ham ,Swiss cheese , pickles ,mustard,,,,Cuban sandwich on the flat top,,,,

          I purposely left the ham out on my suggestion above because I didn’t want her to have to go to the store. However, you are right on!

          My 2nd favorite sammich!

        For something completely different, we like this:


          Tacos. Easy and good.


            On the flattop? Try a riff on Cheesesteaks using the pork instead of beef. Other uses? I love doing pulled pork grilled cheese, pierogis, breakfast fatties, and baked potatoes. Endless possibilities! Let us know what you come up with! As always, pics or it didn’t happen.


              For a BBQ sandwich partial to topping with a savory coleslaw with some BBQ sauce. That said I also love Greygoose’s idea of Cuban Sandwich!


                Thank you all so much for the response.
                RickyBobby was the winning suggestion this time but I will keep track of all the other suggestions for future.
                We did the pulled pork with pepper jack cheese (because it was in the fridge), added a few finely diced jalapeños, and a bit more bbq sauce. We have been using CookShack original sauce for the past year, and really enjoy it to the point of it being the only bbq sauce in the refrigerator which seems strange after so many year with one shelf in the fridge dedicated to BBQ sauce.

                  I’m always looking for more/different ways to use leftover bbq. A few weeks ago I mixed some leftover pulled pork into my meatloaf mix. I was worried it would get dry but it actually healed up great and was pretty darn tasty. I’ll do it again.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
