Mojo Pork Cubanos
Roy Choi's outstanding sandwich features slices of garlicky roast pork layered with grilled boiled ham ("American school lunch ham is great here" he says), as well as Swiss cheese and tangy pickles. You can substitute leftover roast pork for the Mojo pork shoulder Choi uses. Pair this with a fresh, hoppy ale for a perfect weekend lunch.

Sandwiches are a classic choice for a tailgate, but Ken Oringer likes to go beyond plain ham-and-cheese.

He cooks the sandwiches on a portable grill until they are crispy and warm.
