Now separate into a few different bowls.

One bowl for the brisket style serving with sauce on the side as a main dish with slaw (without the bun) for those watching their carb intake.

The second for the sliders, add the pork back to the crockpot for 10-15 mins on high with BBQ sauce. Either leave in the crockpot on warm until the event or add to a bowl and serve.

The third is used to top skillet nachos!
Reserve a small amount of liquid adding a little as needed to keep the pork moist while keeping warm during festivities, etc.
Keep enough for reheating leftovers, etc.
Add 1/3 of the pork back to the crockpot and add in your BBQ sauce.
There…delicious!
Now take the brioche buns and slice in half.
Top with some of the pork.
Add the coleslaw.
Serve with some extra BBQ sauce on the side.

For the skillet nachos, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a cast iron skillet with cooking spray.
Microwave the retried beans for 1-2 mins.
Add about 1 TBSP Taco Seasoning.
Build the layers, starting with the chips.
Top with seasoned refried beans.
Top with the last bowl of pulled pork (without BBQ Sauce)
Top with the sharp cheddar.
Now the 4 cheese.
Add the jalapeños.
Bake 10-15 mins until cheese is melted.
Dice some scallions.
Remove skillet nachos from oven and top with salsa and sour cream if preferred.
Just fabulous!! Dig in.
For any leftover pork just freeze with some reserved juice until ready to use again.
