Let Me Explain BBQ and Turkey

It’s hard to believe, but I don’t think I’ve ever discussed how to properly serve a BBQ Turkey Sandwich.  I have to admit, that I never really knew how to do this until I moved to Texas.  But having lived there for six years and eaten plenty o’ BBQ Turkey Sandwiches while I was there, I know my shit.

First of all, here are the ingredients and plate presentation:

  • Sliced (the Turkey is usually smoked)
  • Dill Pickles – sliced in Hamburger Chip style
  • Sliced White Onions
  • Sliced bread – usually White
  • BBQ Sauce – in an unlimited supply
  • (keep in mind that the meat is interchangeable – brisket, turkey, chicken – I just prefer Turkey)


  • Smother the Turkey with the sauce.
  • Put the Turkey on the bread and top with the Pickles and Onions
  • Eat

That’s how you do it.  And I’m shocked that someone could open up a BBQ joint and not know this shit.  At Big Papa’s BBQ in Littleton tonight, they looked at me like a leper tonight when I asked for bread and pickles and more sauce to accompany my Smoked Turkey.  Sorry, but a big hunk of Turkey (by itself) on a plate doesn’t do it for me.

To top it all off, they didn’t get the bread or pickles right.  They brought out a hoagie roll and sweet pickles.

Big Papa – Get your BBQ shit together.

  1. You are using too fucking many “Bullet Points” in your blogs. Enough already. I would say that using bullet points just once for every three blogs will more than suffice.

    I mean, for Christ’s Fuckin’ Sakes you used them on TWO different occasions in this one Goddamn blog by itself.

    I not telling you how to do your job, I’m just saying that maybe you should lay off the bullet points for a while. That’s all. Don’t take it personally.

    I noticed in one of your previous blogs, you used the “1,2,3…” list method. I like that way better. It gives each individual point a real identity and ranking.

    Better yet, in a future blog I would like to see you go fuckin’ nuts and try an “A, B, C..” type listing.

    Just a suggestion from a dedicated reader of the TSR.
