"This new American classic-part Chinese pork bun, part corn dog-looked good, tasted great, and felt oh-so-right in my hand. Not only did the warm muffin feel good, but also I was eating cornbread with barbecue pork and my fingers were absolutely spotless!"

I have had these at a county fair. They were topped with cole slaw and an additional scoop of the bbq sauced pulled pork. Absolutely delicious!
