    Can I bring in a possibly unpopular opinion?

    Barbecue sandwiches really shouldn’t be a thing. If the meat is good it should stand on its own.

    Idk how brisket and slaw would be, but if you’re going to do pulled pork, ABSOLUTELY throw some slaw on there. Give it some Georgia/Carolinas influence so you get a really vinergary tang to offset the pork. As much as I prefer the meat alone, I do agree that’s a spectacular sandwich.

    I agree the meat is the dish. Problem for me...i like bread. So a sandwich tastes good.

    If I'm eating pork steak or brisket, no sandwich. But shredded chicken or pulled pork, sandwich.

    And Carolina style is what I was going for here.

    As much Q as I have cooked and will continue to cook, I'm a no on slaw. I'm clearly in the minority on this opinion but I just don't like it. Which is weird because about every sandwich I eat better have lettuce. But with bbq I just can't do slaw. No idea why.

    I've gravitated some to the North GA/Carolina bbq flavor. Before it was all Memphis style. Honestly you couldn't find a "mustard" or "tangy" sauce in the aisles of stores in the greater Memphis area. Here it's readily available and I'm becoming more of a fan. Here's a hint...try a good carolina/mustard bbq on wings instead of a hot sauce. Hit it with a little spice and that flavor bursts on a wing ding.

    With the game being kicked I made arrangements to cook loaded potato soup tonight at the house with my parents. Gonna enjoy that and will drop a pic if it turns out ok.

    Tomorrow I'm going out on the town (literally, Canton, GA which is like 10K people) to eat oysters and gator. Gator is a great food. If you ever come across a gator po boy...take it.

    Clearly you've never had a sandwich from Wilber's BBQ in Goldsboro, N.C. because there's no way you'd still have that opinion.

    Whenever I'm outside the Carolinas and I see "Carolina style" on the menu, I enjoy flummoxing the servers with questions about what they mean by that as there are either four or five distinct variants in the Carolinas. ;)

    This thread got barbecue on the brain. Tried 317 Barbecue, where the old Burger Fuel was, in Broad Ripple. Fantastic! The brisket is incredible.

    So you’re correct I haven’t.

    Here’s my philosophy though-if the meat is so good that the sandwich is elite, the meat deserves to be recognized for its own greatness.

    If the sandwich is really good because of what compliments the meat, the meat needs to be better.

    Sandwiches are for leftovers.

    I think slaw is probably overrated as a side. It’s okay, I don’t think I’ve ever had amazing slaw, just limited upside.

    I think it’s very underrated as a condiment though.

    If it's a good mustardy slaw...I'll give it a go. Your regular slaw...just can't get there. And yeah as a side, with BBQ I'd much rather potato salad, baked beans, corn on the cob or mac n cheese vs slaw.

    Rendezvous is the first place I had mustard slaw and, damn, it is amazing. I make my own now and both families love it.

    Baked beans as a side are great. I don’t think people have really explored their full potential though. I use them as a vehicle to recycle my meat scraps, add some jalepenos, brown sugar, and you’ve got a sweet and spicy, meaty, Smokey, stew almost that’s the perfect compliment to any large cut.

    Here's the thing though: The meat is perfection. The slaw is perfection. The bun is perfection. The sauce is perfection. When you put them together, you get a little taste of heaven.

    Most of the slaw I’ve tasted is just plain bland. The exception being KFC. It is sweet and marvelous. 2nd helping worthy.

    If they’re perfect they are strong independent women that don’t need no man.

    I had this for dinner tonight. It’s called a milk steak. The absolute best steak on the entire planet, and it’s in Iowa. I have eaten at the fanciest places in NYC, Chicago, Vegas, Miami, etc. and nothing even comes close. It’s 36 ounces of heaven and takes a few days to prepare.

    I believe MilkSteak is someone’s handle on this board. Put you in the corner with him like Kent and Lonnie - “You guys will have a lot to talk about.”

    Iowa has a superb reputation for their cows.


    That’s probably what they were hoping you’d bring to the team at Penn State.
