Heh, I consider barbecue spaghetti to be abnormal but I just figured that was a barbecue-joint thing. Maybe it's just a Chicago-barbecue-joint thing?

Pasta salad is way more common. But the old Italians and Greeks and their descendants are more likely to have spaghetti than most other groups. I don't know what ethnic back round you have, but it is something that has spread to other Chicagoans over the years.

Old Italians serve not spagehtti but mostaccioli, which is now called "penne" by the younger FoodNetwork types.

Since living up here in Chicago, everytime I barbecue, everyone on the block always asks me where is the speghetti. I always thought they were strange for asking me that. But I guess it is more common then I thought.

If it were up to me, I'd ban ketchup!! LOL
