Mr. JW Johnson has it going on when you are talking pit beef. He's from Delmar, Maryland (that is down on the Eastern Shore in case you don't know) but unlike others from out of Baltimore, this guy knows what the heck he's talking about. Unlike others. He loves to cook and made sure to clarify that in Baltimore there's not batbecue but pit beef. Thank goodness for that. Unlike some others who are still referring to it as barbecue. Come on folks! I totally approve his article and yes, this yummy sandwich you see above, thinly sliced and piled high with thinly sliced onions IS what pit beef is all about. You can read his article and recipe here.
