The true magic in this recipe is to use smoked pork. We use a smoker and smoke 2 or three large pork roast at a time and then divide up the meat and store it in the freezer for year round smoked pork in many recipes.You can make this with regular pork roast meat but Mesquite or Hickory smoked pork bring the dish alive.
