I'm from the south.

There's always cole slaw (made with cabbage, onion, carrots) and potato salad served with bbq. If we are talking physically on a sandwich, it's slaw.

I prefer the not very southern style slaw made with vinegar and oil as opposed to it made with mayo.

I need to take a little weekend road trip over to a Greek area here in FL. Just might get lucky and find some of that special cabbage slaw from the days of old. I had no mayo. Little mustard and maybe it did have some vinegar. I just want to find out what gives it the kick that makes it so good on BBQ, beef or pork.

I can tell you it is common here in North Carolina, and unheard of in South Carolina.

Its very common in Southeast Missouri, too, and Memphis.
I never had a BBQ sandwich without slaw on it until I moved here to Florida. They looked at me as if I had 2 heads when I requested it the first time, lol!

In Texas the term "southern" doesn't always apply. We probably BBQ more beef than much of the country. Pork seems to be meat of choice in other states. Cabbage does go well with pork. Beef screams for taters!!!

Hot slaw on the sandwich and taters on the side. I cover the bases.

It's been a long time since I was in Tarpon Springs but it's time to put it on the top of the bucket list. We always had slaw down where I am here in FL all the way down to sugar cane county. Don't remember seeing any on the east coast though.
