What the Judges Said: Is it cheating to use pork belly in a sandwich such as this? Maybe, but we looked the other way because the flavor-bomb belly in this sandwich was cut beautifully by the pickled veggies and then taken to another level with the pepper jelly. It packs the punch of a sandwich twice its size.
