Serving Suggestions

To elevate your pulled pork sandwich experience, serve them with classic sides like coleslaw, baked beans, or cornbread. For an extra burst of flavor, top your sandwich with pickles, onions, or jalapenos. These combinations will take your meal to the next level!


If you want to change up the flavor profile of your sandwich, consider substituting the hickory liquid smoke with applewood or mesquite liquid smoke. If you prefer a spicier kick, add more red pepper flakes or a touch of hot sauce to the homemade barbecue sauce.

Looking for a Worcestershire sauce substitute? Give these options a try:

  • Soy Sauce and Apple Juice: Mix equal parts of soy sauce and apple juice to create a savory and slightly sweet flavor similar to Worcestershire sauce.
  • Tamari: Tamari is a gluten-free alternative to soy sauce with a rich, umami flavor that can be used in most recipes.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

If you have any leftover pulled pork, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. When reheating, gently heat the pork in a saucepan over low heat, adding a splash of water or barbecue sauce to prevent drying out. Heat until heated through and enjoy again!
