Smoker version

I do everything the same right up to browning the meat (you can brown the meat if you like ), then I put the rolls in the smoker to cook.

After they have been in the smoker for about 1 hour, return them to a pan with the sauce to finish cooking in the smoker. Turning and basting with the sauce til done

When done, let stand for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Serve with sauce poured over the sliced roll
