Asside from a hoagie type bun, what makes up a po-boy. Most I've had have been cold cut stacker types.

As far as I know, that's the only requirement, but I'll let Shiz-Nit explain his vision of the Po-Boy for us to follow.

Won't take you too much longer mate!

I think I can do this. We've got some nice seafood here to deep fry. I can knock up some nice sides and we've got some awesome bread here. Might take a week to nail this, but I'll have a crack!

Cheers!

This is a Po' Boy...http://smoke-n-brew.blogspot.com/201...mp-po-boy.html

Traditionally it is usually oysters, shrimp or some other seafood, in a soft french roll. I prefer mine 'dressed'. Lots of folks think it is all about lunch meat, but, that is a grinder, totally different thing.

According to New Orleans' historians, the Po' Boy sandwich was invented by Clovis and Benjamin Martin, brothers and former streetcar drivers, in 1929 at their Martin Brothers Coffee Stand and Restaurant on St. Claude Avenue in the French Market.

It is said that this sandwich extravaganza began during a local transit worker's strike. The streetcar motormen and conductors strike begin on July 1,1929. Transit strikes throughout the nation provoked emotional displays of public support, and this 1929 strike ranks among the nation' most violent. Eighteen hundred trolley men struck in New Orleans as a result of a union contract dispute. During the strike/riot, two strikers were killed, five trolleys were burned to the trucks, a car barn was dynamited, trackage was destroyed, and switches were cemented.

The two brothers, Clovis and Benjamin Martin, took pity on those "poor boys" and began offering sandwiches made from leftovers to any workers who came to their restaurant's back door at the end of the day. For five cents, a striker could buy a sandwich filled with gravy and trimmings (end pieces from beef roasts) or gravy and sliced potatoes.
