Pulled Pork Rolls with Alabama bbq Sauce – Imagine a portable, dippable savory roll that is easy to make and will impress the whole team. These pulled pork rolls are everything you’ve ever wanted.

Pulled Pork Rolls fresh from the oven.

Excited to partner with Curly’s BBQ to highlight the Curly’s BBQ Showdown – and a chance to win a trip to Pheonix for the game! These pulled pork rolls – these glorious rolls (and that Alabama sauce that goes with them) are a creation that’s mine all mine. 

There’s something about hand-held food and watching sports. Finger licking, napkins passing, and a little messy all seem to go hand in hand with a cold drink and passionate cheers for your favorite teams. It’s the environment, and the community, and the flavors that make the whole package entertaining. You wouldn’t find yourselves in the 3rd row, watching the ball get tossed back and forth without a stadium snack in your hand, and the same goes for when you’re at home.

I was challenged by my new team members over at Curly’s BBQ (RoadTripEats.com) to take on their new Road Trip inspired pork for a quick but delicious meal worthy of the halftime special. Given that I wanted to make a good impression, and truthfully, I wanted to deliver something I knew that could make it to the final round against my fellow competition er, teammates, I got to work dreaming up something perfect for entertaining, and yet easy enough anyone could make.

I know these Pulled Pork Rolls with Alabama BBQ Sauce are delicious – and I want you to give them a try (you can easily find Curly’s in the refrigerated meat case in your grocery store). But I am really hoping you like them enough to head over to the Curly’s BBQ Showdown page and VOTE on my recipe as your favorite recipe.

No pressure, but I’m kinda counting on you.

Seeing that Alabama BBQ sauce getting drizzled over these rolls has me salivating. Grab one while they're still here.

Gameday food and tailgating food. I could have a whole website dedicated to that. Here are some of my creations to make your next game droolworthy!

Tantalize your taste buds with these Pulled Pork Rolls with Alabama BBQ Sauce! Juicy pulled pork and a tangy, smoky sauce make for an unforgettable meal.


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbs baking soda
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme chopped
  • ¼ tsp ground sage
  • ½ tsp coarse ground black pepper
  • ½ cup butter cold and cut into ¼” cubes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups leftover pulled pork
  • 1 ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese divided

For the Alabama Sauce

  • ½ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp spicy mustard
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper ground
  • tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • tsp white pepper ground
  • 1 tsp horseradish
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp brown sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 385 degrees F. Grease a 9” round baking pan.
  • Mix the flour, salt, baking soda, thyme, sage, and black pepper in a large bowl. Work the butter in with your fingers until it’s mixed in and they are the size of small peas.
  • Add in the milk and with a wooden spoon, mix until everything is just moistened.
  • On a clean work surface, sprinkle a little flour. Turn the dough out onto the work surface and form into a loose disc. Wrap and allow to rest for 10 minutes in the freezer if you have the time.
  • Roll the dough out onto the work surface into a 10 x 14 rectangle (don’t go for perfection here).
  • Spread Curly’s BBQ pork belly evenly in the center, leaving a 1” board around the edges. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheddar cheese. Roll up using the long edge to form a tight roll.
  • Cut the roll into 9 or 10 equal portions and place into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 35 minutes. Carefully remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining cheese immediately.
  • For the sauce: Add all of the bbq sauce ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Store for 2 days in an airtight container if making ahead of time. Allow to warm before serving.
  • Serve the pinwheels with the bbq sauce for dipping or drizzle over top.
