The PPLT - Pulled Pork, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

Pulled Pork, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

We invented a new sandwich last night, and it is awesome! I proudly present the "PPLT" - a pulled pork, lettuce and tomato sandwich.

The PPLT has everything I love about a BLT - smokey pork goodness, fresh produce and crunchy toasted bread. This one was made with leftovers from our last batch of smoked pork butt, homemade sandwich bread, lettuce from the garden and farmers' market tomatoes (we have a bunch of seedlings planted, but it will be a while yet before we have our own tomatoes).

We crisped up some of the darker outside bits of pork and left other bits soft and succulent. The result was heaven between two slices of bread. This may just be my new favorite sandwich.

  1. Just brilliant! Maybe even a little bit of avocado mayonnaise?

    Today is suppose to be the official WSM smoke day but I have to wait until tomorrow to smoke the first but of the season.

  2. Oops, WSM smoke day is tomorrow, 5/28. I'm a day ahead this week for some reason. At least I'm not a day behind in smoking!

  3. Hi Carol - I'm a bit of a mayo-phobe, but if you make a PPLT and put some avocado mayo on it, it certainly wouldn't hurt my feelings :-)

    Good luck with your smoke day!

  4. Unbelievably good sandwich. Made them up last night on toasted Arnold's Italian bread. A tiny amount of Mayo mixed with Sweet Barbecue sauce for the "wet" compnonent.
