Pulled bbq pork...good...apple pie...good...grilled cheese...good...put them all together - a little slice of heaven. Sweet and smoky pulled pork with spiced baked apples and sharp white cheddar cheese grilled to perfection. This idea came about by trying to come up with a new way to enjoy leftover pulled pork barbeque and it turned out great!
