I've seen this only in northern Maryland (Cecil County/Elkton Area) and nearby Delaware ...called Lower Delaware by locals and (S)lower Delaware by those out-of-state,

The basic premise is to direct grill a roast, and carve off hunks as it cooks, toss in BBQ sauce and slap it o a bun and serve. The upside is, you always get some burnt edges (a BBQ MUST), and also some tasty rare beef depending how deep you carve ....

I have not tried it yet, but Camden Yards (in Baltimore) has a Boog Powell Pit Beef consession .... I guess it beats the $5.00 hot dogs we eat in Philly .......

A Sandwich from Boog's is tough to beat! Sometimes I think I go to get a sandwich first and watch the O's second.

Boog Powell published a cookbook called "Mesquite Cookery" in the 80's. One of my first bbq cookbooks. (I think I bought the only copy offered for sale.) Still gets some heavy usage, and I'd bet on his restaurant food any day, if this little spiral bound book is any indication.
