I'd never heard of chipped chopped ham BBQ before. It's a Pittsburgh classic. In its simplest form, chipped chopped ham is warmed in barbecue sauce. It is served on warm kaiser rolls. That's it. Simple. And brilliant. After wrapping my head around the fact that I've never experienced this before I began to wonder about variations: bologna, mortadella, turkey, roast beef. My delight is in the simplicity.
