"BBQ Sandwich" that really isn't BBQ

JohnJeter | Sep 30, 200304:24 PM

I grew up loving a long-defunct place in Elgin called "Morris BBQ"; however I don't believe their beef or pork (the two sandwich options) every saw a smoker or open flame or anything else that would characterize it as "BBQ". Rather, I THINK the meat was seasoned and roasted, then shredded, then additionally seasoned in a pot. No "red sauce" or "BBQ sauce" of any kind was used. Therein lies my question- does anyone have any idea about how the meat is seasoned which would give it the name "BBQ"? Are there any other places which serve something like this? It really was more a roast pork (or beef) sandwich with a unique flavor. Russell's sandwiches are somewhat close to this flavor, but use the BBQ sauce and their meat is "barbecued" from what I understand.

If this is not obscure and vague enough, my next post will be about the long-defunct Charlotte's Pizza between Barrington and Palatine.
