1. 1. Stir the mayonnaise, marmalade and oregano together in a small bowl.
2. 2. Square off the ends of the bread and cut in half crosswise. Split each piece horizontally to hinge open. (If using Italian rolls, only split horizontally.)
3. 3. Spread the flavored mayonnaise on the bottom of the breads. Top each with 3 slices of the ham, folding if necessary to fit on the bread, and then a layer of pickles and 3 slices of cheese. Finish each sandwich with 1/2 cup Pulled Pork. Spread the mustard on the top buns and close the sandwich.
4. 4. Heat a medium cast-iron pan over medium heat. Melt the butter, add the sandwiches and press with a spatula to flatten. When the sandwiches are golden brown and crispy on the bottom, about 4 minutes, flip the sandwiches and press and cook until the cheese melts and the bread is golden brown, about 3 minutes more. Cut the sandwiches in half and serve.

1. Combine all of the ingredients (except the pork) in a food processor or blender and blend until completely liquified.
2. Line a roasting pan with foil and place the roasting rack in the pan. Place the pork, skin side down on the roasting rack. Add 2 cups of water to the bottom of the roasting pan.
3. Using a meat injector, inject all of the marinade into the pork.Try not to puncture the skin underneath. I like to go in from the side to make sure I'm not puncturing the skin. Just try to inject as many spots as you can to really get the marinade throughout the entire pork. (If you feel like you've maxed out on the inside of the pork, just take any left over marinade and rub it all over the outside of the pork)
4. Cover the pork with foil as tightly as you can to create a seal. Refrigerate overnight or at least for 6 hours. (I prefer overnight but 6 hours will do if you're shorter on time.)
