    R E Taylor's Note:

    I grew up in Cleveland, OH where a popular, local BBQ place (Whitmore's) serves this as a sandwich or a dinner. I moved years ago and have since lived in the South, but nothing comes close to this sandwich. I suppose it's one part nostalgia and one part a "doggone good meal". This is my rendition and I think it comes pretty close since I'm no where near getting any Whitmore's on a regular basis.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 -8 lbs pork butt or 6 -8 lbs pork shoulder
    • 1/4 cup brown mustard or 1/4 cup spicy mustard
    • 8 -10 slices Texas toast thick bread (or Wonder, Iron Kids, etc..)
    • barbecue sauce (your favorite)
    • Coleslaw (I use KFC Coleslaw KFC Coleslaw) (optional)
    • French fries (I buy a large order from a local eatery because their fries are addictive) (optional)

    Spice Rub


    1. 1
      Coat shoulder with mustard and sprinkle liberally with Spice Rub coating all sides.
    2. 2
      Place in a plastic bag and refrigerate overnight.
    3. 3

    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
    5. 5
      Place uncovered shoulder directly on rack with a drip pan beneath.
    6. 6
      Roast for 7-8 hours (or until falling apart).
    7. 7
      Remove from oven to a cooling rack to rest for at least 1 hour.
    8. 8
      Pull pork apart using fingers or two forks.
    9. 9
      Serve by topping 1 slice of bread with a generous portion of meat, BBQ sauce, coleslaw and fries.
    10. 10
      It makes a pretty messy (but unbeatable) open-faced sandwich so you may want to have forks at the ready.

      Great sandwiches. I couldn't bear to part with the juices that had accumulated in the pan (in the beginning, I'd pour in a little water to prevent sticking) so I whisked in a little bbq sauce into them and combined the shredded meat in too. Very juice and super delicious. I marinated my meat for nearly a day and I must say the spice rub penetrated right through and the meat was flavourful and tender. I made this chef's coleslaw recipe (#107402) and we had a truly marvellous, savoury lunch. Thank you.
