BBQ Pinwheels

Oh, I’ve made my share of pulled pork sandwiches. And I love them. Sometimes you want something a little different, but still with that great BBQ flavor. BBQ pinwheels are an excellent alternative to sandwiches. They’re easy to make, easy to eat, and very tasty. They also make for the perfect party appetizer.
BBQ PinwheelsYou can use anything from pulled or shredded pork, chopped brisket, smoked chicken, or even rotisserie chicken.  For a spicier kick, substitute pepper jack or habanero jack cheese for the cheddar and use a spicy BBQ sauce.

Also try my BBQ hot dog appetizers and my bacon cheddar pinwheels.
