Sweet & Smoky BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders


Start with a flavor base you know your kids enjoy, and something you already have in your fridge. From there, mix it up and break out of kids’ comfort zones. If chicken is a weeknight staple, try pork. Play around with different spices and marinades to excite their palates!
