First had these sandwiches at a tailgating party. They are very good and pack up nicely in an ice-chest. Originally from Southern Living. Chill time not included in prep time.

We made this recipe with mixed reviews. I knew it might be iffy with our family because of the bourbon. The meat and flavor was outstanding!! The sauce was just a bit much for us and I know it was the bourbon so don't that discourage anyone - it was just us. I plan to make the pork that way again and serve "as is" or possibly in a sandwich with a sauce that better suits our family.
