Interesting that they consider the pasty a sandwich. I'd liken it to a stuffed pasta, like ravioli or pierogi.

I've always considered them more of a savory pie, but I could see "sandwich" being a description, although maybe not in the strict sense. Pasties were designed to make food more transportable, so miners could take their lunches down into the mine with them.

Very nice photos, although the chopped pork sandwich from NC should been called a barbecue sandwich and where is the coleslaw? JMHO

I share your HO! I thought the same thing. Since when is coleslaw optional on a Carolina barbecue sandwich??

Pennsylvania has the pork and broccoli rabe sandwich??? Give me a break! The Philly Cheese Steak is iconic and synonymous with Philadelphia and Pennsylvania.

At least they didn't mention Primante's sandwich with french fries and cole slaw...

I said exactly the same thing, Hoot, when I looked at that pulled pork sandwich. Where's the slaw?!
And yes, pork and broccoli rabe is very popular here in PA... NOT! That one must be a Harrisburg thing
That doesn't mean that I wouldn't have liked to dig into a lot of them though

And the Beef on Weck is what that Baltimore pit beef I just cooked reminded me of, but I couldn't think of it. I used to get them at a German men's club in Erie a looooong time ago. It was one of those things bugging me everytime I ate one (which has been every day since Sunday ), so it was nice feeding my memory that tidbit.

IMO those Priamante sandwichs and similar offering are just plain gross!

Everything in them is wonderful, combined into one sandwich they are just disgusting!

Yeah... and what's up with those Italian subs? three kinds of meat, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, salad dressing... gross! Is it a sandwich or a salad?

All tongue in cheek, Aunt Bea

My main problem with all of these monster sandwiches is not the ingredients.
It is the problem with eating them, when you try to take a bite they seem to self destruct and leave you with a plate or lap filled with a pile of disgusting slop. When I am served one of those nowadays, I don't even attempt to eat it, I just push it aside, pay the bill and leave.

Well, yeah. That's why you need to take a picture of it before that first bite

I do agree. This is a very nice sandwich, however.

I desire to try to make barbeque pork someday.

This seems like a better list than I've seen previously. The other article just had "gourmet" sandwiches that happened to be made in each state regardless of them being popular there.

With Maine the lobster roll is certainly big, and it's certainly what tourists think of when they think of a sandwich in Maine, but for the locals it's something different. It's called an Italian, just an Italian. It's not what you would expect from places with a large Italian population, but Maine's take on it. Usually starts out with a soft sub roll, then it's topped with ham and salami (one or the other or both), Provolone or American, onions, green peppers, black olives, pickles, oil and salt. Mainers don't claim that there is anything authentic about this sandwich, but it's the most popular one in the state, any sandwich shop will have it.

They nailed Montana - The Staggering Ox is hands down the best sandwich shop ever.

The Wyoming sandwich, though - Bison - designer sandwich, no self respecting Wyomingite would eat one. Now a juicy Lamburger with your mittens on is a better choice. I lived in Laramie for a good part of my life and never heard of that coffeehouse.

I didn't see a smoked meat on rye, a sub, grilled cheese, or a Po boy. Surely somebody would have claimed those to be theirs....
