  2. In another large mixing bowl combine the pulled pork and BBQ sauce together.
  3. Place a corn husk flat on the bench and spoon 1-2 heaped Tbsp. dough mixture on and spread it around so it covers about way half way down the corn husk evenly. Then spoon some of the pulled pork in the middle.
  4. Carefully fold the husk in half to close up the mixture and shape it into a cylinder or cone shape, then fold the empty bottom half of the husk up and tie together with butchers string. Repeat for the remainder.
