My point was that WF has a bunch of meat mongers in a store that has some emphasis on specialty products and they don't know what it is.

Sheesh.....

I didn't take it as an argument, just a discussion of how there are differences in recipes.

It was not my intention to seem argumentative, but I cringe anytime someone uses the word "traditional" when it comes to a particular dish. Maybe if it is a family recipe/dish, then it might be appropriate. Then again, why does someone like grandmas version better than aunt Bettys? Recipes (not talking about baking formulas) shouldn't be "cookie cutter". That would be boring!
