Chicago natives absolutely love Italian Beef, but this recipe switches up the beef for the pork and seasons it the same as Italian Beef. It's definitely worth the change and is sure to be a dish you'll make more than once.

James Llorens uses the Char-Griller Gravity Fed 980 Charcoal Grill. This app enabled grill allows you to monitor both the grill and food temperature from your mobile device. If you're looking for a charcoal smoker grill that provides versatility and is easy to use, look no further.
