"This recipe makes the best barbecued meat sandwiches ever," enthuses Tina Wunker of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. "The combination of beef, pork and spices just can't be beat. The recipe makes a lot... but these sandwiches don't last log. The first time I served them, I was sure I'd have leftovers—was I ever wrong!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2009

This dish is very tender. 16 to 20 servings is way too much at a time for just my husband and myself, so I freeze leftovers in 3 cup containers, just the right proportions for two. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Sincerely
