Barbeque doesn't get any easier than this! They were both delicious and I'll tell you at the end of the blog which one was our favorite.
Sandwich #1 Barbeque Pork Sliders
This recipe is so simple. I'd never used ground pork by itself before and my instincts to add another type of ground meat was strong- but I resisted- and I'm so glad I did.
I wasn't sure if the ground pork would be lean or if it would shrink when cooked. As you can see from the following pictures it was very lean and grilled beautifully!
Once you move the patties to a rack for indirect cooking you can brush the surface with barbeque sauce. Notice in the photo the size of the patties. The meat was lean and did not shrink in size once cooked.

Serve with dollar buns. I like to brush mine with some softened butter and broil them before serving. I also added some Jalepeno Cilantro Slaw to the sliders!
Sandwich #2 Barbeque Pork Chop Sandwich
For this sandwich we used the thin cut chops. It's economical, cooks pretty fast, and is the perfect size for a sandwich.
For seasoning we used the same barbeque spices- Head Country and generously seasoned both sides of the chops.
The same cooking method was used. About 6-8 minutes per side on direct heat and then moved to indirect heat and brushed with barbeque sauce.
I really think they should pass a law that says all buns used for sandwiches should be brushed with butter and broiled. This has to be one of my very favorite things on Earth. There is nothing better than butter that's been broiled. PERIOD.
Just don't walk away during the broiling process because it can go quickly from Heaven to disaster if it burns.
I should have showcased sandwich #2 a little better but by the time it was done I was starving and couldn't wait to eat! Momma was hungry!!!!
We really liked both sandwiches. They were both very easy to make, they were both economical, and lean.
Our personal favorite was the sliders. I think just because we'd never had them before. They were moist, easy to handle, and extremely tasty!
Life on the lake is laid back. When we cook it's far from being fancy affair. It's all about relaxing with friends and family and enjoying comfort food. More often than not it's not all that healthy but boy it sure is good!!!
