Tips on Making the Traditional Ham BBQ’s –

  • Use Isaly’s Chipped ham or the cheapest brand of ham you can find and have it shaved thin.
  • Buy your fresh ham from the deli.
  • Always use small cheap buns, remember, it’s all about the ham!
  • Don’t use water in the sauce!
  • Taste the sauce after everything has been added, add a little extra brown sugar or vinegar depending on your taste.
  • If you don’t have yellow mustard, add about 1/4 teaspoon dried mustard.
  • Don’t forget the relish. Some people love lots of relish on their BBQs.
  • Try to use Heinz ketchup if possible. We LOVE this ketchup!
  • Don’t try to be neat – sloppy is ok, just have extra napkins.
  • Serve macaroni salad and about 12 different tasty jello salads (LOL) and you have yourself a traditional Pittsburgh picnic!
