These healthy Carolina BBQ Sandwiches are open-faced barbecue-y sandwiches that are as unique as they are picnic-worthy.  Try to eat them with your hands, sandwich-style, and you will also call them finger-licking good!  (These are definitely more suited for utensils.)

These sandwiches were partially adapted from tasteofhome.com.
