Is this considered 'Texas' BBQ?

Bob F. | Mar 30, 2001 03:59 PM

Here in my area, the Ritz Barbecue on the fairgrounds
in Allentown PA (they're open almost every day of the
year...the fair is in late Aug/early Sept) serves
their specialty: succulent, juicy meats (beef, pork,
turkey, and seasonally if at all, ham) stuffed into a
Kaiser with chopped onions, a shot of bottled BBQ
sauce (not KC or any name brand IIRC), sliced pickles,
and (ONLY if it's to go) a goodly spoonful of pickle
relish.

I've only ever seen the meat after it's been shaved
from the beast, being ladled (!?) out of a steam-
table compartment by some semi-elderly short-order
type.

My questions are: 1. Is this considered 'Texas' BBQ?,
only because I've seen similar sandwiches in catering
or event situations; and 2. Where can I find this
food in this form, if at all, closer to the NYC area?
