Dixie Dynamite




Introduction: Dixie Dynamite

About: I think my interests tell a lot about me, I'm a multimedia artist which means I work in whatever medium grabs my attention, paint on canvas is very relaxing and acrylic paint can be mixed with paper to make ...

 Ham, cheese and pulled pork..... whats not to like !  This long time favorite started out like a lot of sandwichs with leftovers, for the original I started with garlic toast, deli ham and american cheese with left over pulled pork, wrapped in tinfoil, I "cooked" them on the exhaust manifolds of the car. The wraps came in when I needed something to take to a party which is also where they got the name.

Step 1: Getting Ready

Here's what your going to need to recreate this tasty wrap

 deli ham
 shredded chedder
 pulled pork
 hot peppers
 bbq sauce
 a heat source

Step 2: Build It

well I could make each ingredient a different step but then I'd need to come up with a name for each step, so lets condense it .

 take a portion of pulled pork that your going to use, add some bbq sauce, cover the bowl with a paper plate and lay out your tortillas, pop them in the microwave for about a minute

 take one of your warm tortillas and add a layer or more of sliced deli ham, a healthy helping of shredded cheese, now add a nice layer of pulled pork, top it all with more bbq sauce and your favorite hot peppers (optional)

 Now roll it up and wrap in aluminum foil

Step 3: Cook It

Like I said at the start, the original was cooked on the car manifold but since then I've made them on the grill, in a smoker, a toaster oven and rocks next to a bonfire so the method of heating is really up to you. A light browning on the outside is good but not necessary as long as everything is heated through and the cheese melts

Step 4: Bbq Sauce (a Mini "ible")

I enjoy a lot of styles of BBQ sauce, from the vinager based to tomato and mustard based, this is really a combination of all and was originally created by being frugal. Most BBQ shacks give you lots of bbq sauce for takeout, I didn't want to throw out the leftovers but those little plastic cups dont store well. I had an almost empty yellow mustard bottle that I thought what the heck... after adding the bbq sauce to the mustard I tasted the result, not bad but... a little more vinager, some more yellow and dark spicey mustard and finally a bit of hot sauce..hhmmm thats not bad at all ! Since that original idea Ive also made "the sauce" with bottled tomato based bbq sauce.  Sorry there are no measurements, its all by taste

Step 5: Variations

I've shown you a wrap, the original was on toasted italian bread with garlic butter, use a hard roll and its almost a cuban.
 I used shredded chedder here but slices of swiss or pepper jack work great, even american cheese in a pinch.
 HEY its a sandwich/wrap... use your imagination !

    Every build or recipe on here is great - gotta follow you just so I can work my way through some of the brill food.

    Just found my next project - love the idea of cooking with the car - we get outdoors quite a lot, more so in summer, making a cooking container that stays fixed to the vehicle will keep me busy for a few days ( I bore easy ) - thanks for the instructable, your feedback and the inspiration to build anew.

    My truck has a pipe with screw on ends and worm clamps attach it to the headers. We cook hot pockets and wraps like this all the time on the trail.

    Thank you for the great comment. Newer cars are more difficult to find an open area to cook on but they are also usually cleaner. It takes a while to cook on an engine or exhaust system so be ready for a good ride
