Will be pulled pork calzones. Made plenty of calzones, but never pulled pork. Any ideas on what to put in it other than pulled pork? I was thinking a mix of cheddar cheeses and some red onion and some good BBQ sauce from @travisstrick courtesy of the gift exchange. Anything else?

    You could also go the traditional mozzarella, red sauce, mushrooms and onions with the pulled pork - I'm just more of a savory guy.

    Yeah, I was leaning that way to begin with @Nola, but then I remembered that the little bit of leftover PP already had some BBQ sauce mixed in. I figured I would just add a little more sauce as opposed to mixing red and BBQ sauces. Plan now is to get some input from forum and then make gametime decision. Only thing I know for sure is I have about 8 Two-Hearted Ales in the fridge waiting on me.

    I love me some pulled pork and broccoli rabe pizza. Something green in there might be good! I'd also recommend ricotta cheese for any calzone!

    @Jamieoro, yeah ricotta is a staple in my other calzones, but wasnt sure is it would work for pulled pork. Might as well throw it in there.

    I have done a Mexican version with verde salsa cheese and refried beans with the pulled pork.

    I know this might be considered heresy on this website, but if you make a calzone and not put it on the egg but slip into hot oil and deep fry.  Then have a bowl of sauce to dip into.  WOW.  My family calls them Poor Man's Pizza from a receipe my aunt learned when my uncle was stationed in Naples Italy 55+ years ago.

    Verdict. Blues hog was great. The candied jalapeños (also from Travis) were fantastic. Didn't really taste the cheddar, the onions were a nice touch and the ricotta as usual was great. I give it a 8/10. Could have cooked top longer but bottom was done.

    Glad you liked it. Make some nachos with the honey mustard and candied jollys. (i think I sent you some honey mustard.)

    Trust me on this one. They are mind blowing. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
