Pulled Pork and Pistol Point Grilled Cheese

When we picked up the award-winning Pistol Point cheese (Rogue Creamery in Oregon) from Brennan's Market, we were happy with the nice surprise.

The cheese, I thought, would pair nicely with some pulled pork, which we happened to have left over in the fridge. And, in celebration of National Grilled Cheese Month in April, we thought that would be a good sandwich to enjoy.

(Ahem. Let's not talk about how busy we were in April, and that the grilled cheese posts we intended to publish then are being published now. We're sorry.)

Regardless, the cheddar cheese laced with chipotle was a natural pairing for the pork, and really brought the spice and smoke of Southwest flavors to the foreground.
