What is chipped ham??? Yunz gotta be a 'Burgher to know that chipped ham is shaved ham. Any kind of deli baked ham can be used, cut very thinly or shaved. In Pittsburgh, it is "chipped". An early version of this dish used a local brand, Isaly's Chipped Chopped Ham, a rather greasy but tasty composite loaf. One of those things you really didn't want to know what the contents really were. Anyway, I use a similar recipe with more vinegar and brown sugar, and onions and garlic, too. This is a very convenient and good-tasting sandwich to take to a picnic (use the crockpot) or to sell at a fund-raiser.


Yins are gonna love 'ese chipped ham barbecues. Perfect for watching them Stillers play football on the Norside of dahntahn.


I live in Pgh now, but I didn't grow up here. Knowing how particular Pittsburghers can be about their ham bbq, I was nervous to try making it myself. But, I made your recipe, and all my hubby's relatives (natives)have absolutely RAVED about it, saying it is the best they've had. It made me proud, so thanks a ton! That was 2 years ago, and I still make it often. I make it exactly as written, too :)
