Enjoy an all-star recipe that starts with tasty pinwheels featuring tender pulled pork belly and unique BBQ sauce for dipping. Curly’s Alabama Style offers a juicy pulled pork belly favorite that is smoked and seasoned to perfection.
For the Alabama Sauce
1Preheat the oven to 385 ˚. Grease a 9” round baking pan.
2Mix 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.
3Add in the milk and with a wooden spoon, mix until everything is just moistened.
4On 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.
5Roll the dough out onto the work surface into a 10 x 14 rectangle (don’t go for perfection here).
6Spread Curly’s Alabama Style evenly in the center, leaving a 1” board around the edges.
7Sprinkle with 1 cup cheddar cheese.
8Roll up using the long edge to form a tight roll.
9Cut the roll into 9 or 10 equal portions and place into the prepared pan.
10Bake for 35 minutes. Carefully remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining cheese immediately.
11For 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.)
12Serve the pinwheels with the BBQ sauce for dipping or drizzle over top.
