You can’t beat traditional low and slow BBQ pulled pork. But what if you just don’t have hours to Q? Solution the Grilled Pork Sliders I prepared on George Hirsch Lifestyle episode Local Inspired Comfort Foods. Pork tenderloins benefit ideally from a good rub and sauce, plus cook up quickly on the grill. In a pinch the pork can be grilled or roasted indoors.
