Quite possibly this is where the Deep South meets the Wild West. Go ahead and take a bite. Your fork is waiting...

Yummy sauce. Love it on the pork and will be good on many other meats. I made half a recipe but less cheese and pan fried the pork as it is below zero here. Will measure my cheese next time, I just eyeballed it and don't think I put the entire amount in.

This was delish! My only change was that I used sliced gouda (because I forgot to specify that I needed a chunk at the deli counter). I used a little less than a half a pound and it was still very cheesy and smokey. Yum.
