Date: Tue, 7 Mar 1995 11:29:32 CST From: MikePicone Subject: barbecue vs. sloppy joe The barbecue sandwiches that I am now priviged to eat here in the Deep South, shredded pork or beef covered with sauce, are a real treat and a far cry from the ground-hamburger-in-tomato-sauce sloppy joe sandwiches that they would stick in my throat as kid growing up in Chicago. I do recall, vaguely, sloppy joe referred to as barbecue, but, in my memory at least, sloppy joe was the preferred term then (50's & 60's).
