One of the benefits of having a smoker is making a huge BBQ Pork Shoulder and coming up with creative ways to use the leftovers… like these Smoked Pulled Pork Sliders.
They are basically twice smoked…the pork itself was smoked low and slow for hours.
And then the sliders also get smoked for a perfect extra hint of wood fired flavor.
How to Make Smoked Pulled Pork Sliders
I am using King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, but you could use any slider bun you prefer.
For these I cut them in half with a serrated bread knife, separating the top and bottom.
Put the bottom half on a baking sheet and place four slices of provolone cheese, overlapping slightly.
Then warm up about 4 to 5 cups of leftover pulled pork and mix in as much or as little BBQ sauce as you like.
Warming the pork first makes it easier to mix.
Next spread the BBQ pork in a single layer on top of the cheese.
Then top with even more provolone cheese.
Put the top half of the slider buns on and head to your smoker or pellet grill.
Heat it to 250 degrees and place the baking sheet on the grill grate.
They will smoke for about 40 to 50 minutes, just enough time to warm the pork and melt the cheese.
Smoked Pulled Pork Sliders are cheesy and super yummy!
Cut them into individual sliders to serve.
We even had ours with some pickled jalapenos, the little extra spicy kick was so good!
