We eat a lot of CFS down here in Texas, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I've been trying to think if I've ever encountered it offered as a sandwich and I can't remember one. The choices usually involve a decision about how much of it you want to lop over the edge of the plate or whether you want steak fingers. I guess they do things a little differently up there.
I have seen, and tried, fried pork chop sandwiches, at soul food or Cajun places, often bone-in.
I would have picked the El Reno Onion Burger for Oklahoma.
And would have picked the New Orleans Po-boy over the Muff. There are a lot of choices for Muffs here but are they really that well known/available outside of a limited area of the South?
Sad to say, the Chopped Beef BBQ sandwich is probably a good choice for Texas. I think it's the worst way to experience Texas BBQ but everybody serves 'em, unless they just don't do sandwiches at a particular joint.
Weekends and sometimes weekday evenings, the sight of people towing pits around behind SUVs or pickups, pulling into the parking lot of a grocery store, Best Buy, Academy Sports and Outdoors, etc., for just a few minutes, is very common. They may offer links or even plates but overwhelmingly what people go for is the chopped beef sandwich, slathered in sauce.
