Smoked Pulled Pork Sliders

You need to get a pork butt or shoulder and rub it down with your favorite seasonings and smoke it low and slow at 225 degrees for about 10-12 hours.

I know, it's time consuming but the pork has loads of flavor when done right and that crispy outer skin known as the bark - suffice to say, outstanding.

Ingredients

2 lb
pulled smoked pork - see personal notes
1 large
yellow onion
2 oz
balsamic vinegar
2 slice
chipotle cheddar cheese - or favorite sharp cheddar
10
slider buns or mini ciabatta buns
1 lb
clarified butter in squirt bottle

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a sauté pan over high heat, caramelize the onion until nice and golden brown. Finish off with balsamic vinegar, take off heat and set aside.
2
Take pork right from the smoker, or heat it up in the oven if it's already been cooled off.
3
Cut open the buns and drizzle each with a little melted butter. Arrange 2 oz of pulled pork on each bottom bun; place a small amount of balsamic onions on the pork, top with sliced Cheddar, then bun top.
4
Place onto hot grill for approximately 1-2 minutes or until markings are nice and golden and cheese begins to melt. You can also press in a panini grill if so desired.
