The only time coleslaw is put into or onto a sandwich is when it
is put on hotdogs (by some New York persons). With barbeque, 
coleslaw is served on the plate, adjacent to but not in direct 
contact with the meat. Potato salad may also be served on the plate. 
Also slices of raw onion and jalapeno -- sliced or whole. If the 
barbeque is perfect, there is no need for sauce since the flavoring 
has been in the rub. A true purist first tastes the meat without any
sauce; if he reaches for or requests sauce after that first bite, 
the cook holds his head a little lower. Pat
