    I was just looking at the steak sandwich thread which got me thinking.
    The other day I heard pit beef was a local thing and didn’t believe it.
    How many of you guys out there have good pit beef in your States?

    So I guess for Maryland we have:

    PIT BEEF . Slow cooked beef over a bbq pit sliced thin and usually served on a bun or Kaiser roll , like the beef version of pulled pork

    STEAMED CRABS . Straight from the Chesapeake.

    CRAB CAKES ( must have fresh with very little fillers!)

    MD. CRAB SOUP. Which is like a vegetable soup with crab in it

    Oh and our famous seasoning !
    OLD BAY seasoning!
    one of the best seasonings ever I was always amazed when I’d go on a family trip north or south when I was younger because I thought everyone had it and didn’t know it was regional.

    And the regional potato chip around here is
    HERRS potato chips ( OLD BAY flavor of course;) ) made less than 5 miles from my house ( the factory tour is a must for all school children) you haven’t lived until you’ve had a hot potato chip fresh from the fryer mmmmmmm.......

    So what are your guys States or local areas know for ?
    And how many of you guys have SCRAPPLE or even know what it is?

    This is gonna be a hungry thread

    As a New Yorker, I believe in Hebrew National hot dogs, Rueben sandwiches, and thin, crispy pizza crust! ... And wash it down with a good Egg Cream!

    I have not had scrapple in about 10 years, bad experience with scrapple, home fries, 3 cups of coffe and a long drive home!:(

    I live in South Florida, so you can find all different kinds of food made by the people who live with it as part of their daily lives. And it's not all at fancy, expensive jet-set-type restaurants, either.

    So long as we're talking about steak sandwiches, I submit the humble pan con bistec...

    [​IMG]

    ...which literally translates to "bread with steak" (I'm pretty sure "bistec"is a Cubanization of "beefsteak). The meat is very marinated, very seasoned, very thin and well-done (I also have a theory that [especially small] island nations go large on flavoring their food because it's easier to import/grow lemons, herbs and spices than cows). Aside from that, you need potato stix, lettuce and tomato. That's the minimum. I like some onions that are cooked with the steak. Some people like a little cheese on there, or some mayo. The sandwich is assembled, pressed and wolfed down.

    I'm 54. Old Bay has been everywhere as long as I can remember.


    The potato chip was invented in my town.

    Here we have shrimp and grits. It's made several different ways, some use sausage, tasso ham gravy, cheese, green onions, etc. Just find the type you like. Tomato pie is another local favorite. We tend to broil or grill fish. Delicious.

    We got fish. We got beef. We got plenty vegetables, including corn which can be ground into meals and flours.

    It’s not hard to be a locavore here.

    You do have tolerate Florida Man, tourist drivers, Canadians, random violence, and general craziness to live here, though.

    It's the only things I miss about Maryland....some of the food. Can't get a great crab cake anywhere else it seems, even while other restaurants elsewhere claim to have 'Maryland style crab cakes' and they rarely even get close, and still love the ribs at the Corner Stable....
    So every visit is a food fest for seafood mostly ;)

    Now in Florida, there are places that make an outstanding fish Reuben, usually grouper.

    Grabbing a Pie Floater from the pie cart was a must in the early hours after a gig or night out in the 80's and 90's.

    North Carolina is a smathering of a little bit of everything especially in the Raleigh area, but by in large, we are mediocrity in BBQ. Memphis still reigns King in BBQ.

    Pork tenderloin (this one has a rather undersized piece of meat - usually they're about twice the width of the bread).

    MMMM! I have not had one of these since my college days in the Hoosier state. Would not know where to find one near me. I'll have to get out the mallet and start pounding the tenderloin ( that sounds wrong :oops:)

    Among other things ... the fried onion burger according to this article.

    https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/oklahoma/iconic-foods-ok/

    El Reno is home to the world's largest fried onion burger, which gets cooked every year at the Fried Onion Burger Day Festival. Sid's, Robert's and Johnnie's are three of the most famous places in El Reno to order a "normal" sized onion burger.

    [​IMG]

    Sonic tater tots also made the list.

    In 1953, the prototype of the first Sonic Drive-In opened in Shawnee, Okla. The name Top Hat was changed to Sonic in 1959. The tater tots and cherry limeades are favorites on the menu.

    Up here, the specialty would be anything wild ... grilled elk steaks, grouse and trout are very popular along with fry bread with honey and cinnamon, but my favorites are bear/beef sausage links and moose jerky. 90 miles from the nearest fast food chain leaves lots of openings for creative fare.
