      Set two large cast iron pans on the grill and close lid, allowing the pans to heat up.
    • 5

      To build the sandwich, cut a 6 inch piece of bread then slice that horizontally lengthwise. Brush the exterior sides of the bread with melted butter. On the inside, slather one side of bread with yellow mustard, top the mustard with Swiss cheese, then on the bottom half, place the sliced ham. Top ham with pulled pork and pickles.
    • 6

      With the cast iron pans smoking hot, place the sandwich in the bottom of one of the pans then place the other pan on top, smashing the sandwich. Close the lid and allow to cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the exterior of the sandwich is crispy and cheese is melted.
