Preheat oven to 425°. Spread waffle fries on a large rimmed baking pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until very crispy, flipping once halfway through. Remove from oven and cool completely.
Cut 4 (14x12-inch each) sheets of heavy foil. Divide and layer ⅓ potatoes, 1 cup pulled pork, and 1 cup shredded Cheddar on the foil sheets. Repeat layers two more times using remaining ingredients. Bring up short sides of foil. Double-fold top, then double-fold ends to seal packets. Refrigerate until ready to grill.
To grill, preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat (375°). Open packets by gently unfolding tops of packets and pulling back foil; leave ends of packets in tact. Grill 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through (165°). Remove from grill. Top with sliced jalapeños; drizzle with barbeque sauce and ranch salad dressing, if desired.
