R E Taylor's Note:
I grew up in Cleveland, OH where a popular, local BBQ place (Whitmore's) serves this as a sandwich or a dinner. I moved years ago and have since lived in the South, but nothing comes close to this sandwich. I suppose it's one part nostalgia and one part a "doggone good meal". This is my rendition and I think it comes pretty close since I'm no where near getting any Whitmore's on a regular basis.
