Best ham barbeque ever!! I am originally from the Pittsburgh area and grew up with these sandwiches being served at every picnic and family get together. A few years ago I found that the stores here had begun selling Isaly's ham (the only ham to use for REAL ham barbeque). I should also add that I have bought Isaly's at about 4 stores up here and have only found ONE deli lady that can manage to cut it correctly-it has to be so thin you can see through it but not a pile of ham dust (which I got at one store). I decided to share a bit of my childhood with my wife so I bought some and made up a crock pot of barbeque and since then have made it a few times it has never been right. I think she was starting to think I was a little crazy talking about how good this stuff was supposed to be. Then we made this recipe a few days ago. This is perfect! We made it exactly as written and recommend changing nothing. The balance of sour and sweet and the thickness of the sauce were exactly what I remember. If you want real ham barbeque do yourself a favor-print this recipe out and get into your kitchen-you're wasting your time if you keep looking.
