My husband is an amazing BBQer. Like AMAZING! So I never make these sandwiches because when we have BBQ we have the real thing! But I like having a simple meal to take to people or a good freezer meal for us so this does the trick! My dad use to always make it for me in college, so it takes me back to a simpler time :)
