Ingredients

Bacon jam, for spreading

6 deli rolls, split

Pop Pulled Pork, recipe follows

6 slices country ham 

6 slices pepper jack cheese

Bread and butter pickles, for topping

Pop Pulled Pork:

2 onions, sliced

One 3-pound pork butt (pork shoulder roast) 

1 tablespoon kosher salt 

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper 

2 teaspoons garlic powder 

One 12-ounce can pop (I use Dr. Pepper) 

One 18-ounce bottle BBQ sauce 

1 tablespoon hot sauce 

1/4 cup brown sugar 

Directions

  1. Spread bacon jam on the bottom half of each deli roll. Then layer on some shredded Pop Pulled Pork and a slice of country ham and pepper jack. Add bread and butter pickles, top with the other half of the roll and wrap in paper.

Pop Pulled Pork:

Yield: 8 servings
  1. Place the onion slices in the bottom of a slow cooker. Sprinkle the pork with the salt, pepper and garlic powder, then place it on top of the onions. Crack open the can of pop and pour it over the whole thing. Add the whole bottle of BBQ sauce and the hot sauce, then add the brown sugar to the liquid and stir.
  2. Put on the lid, set the slow cooker to high and cook for 6 hours. When it's done, the pork will be dark and weird and wonderful. It'll also be fork-tender. That's when you know it's done.
  3. Remove the meat from the slow cooker and shred completely. Spoon the fat from the sauce. Return the meat to the slow cooker and keep in the sauce until ready to serve. Divine!
