Guy Fieri's favorite sandwich - Chaps Pit Beef

I missed this episode of "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" on the Food Network when it first aired; I suppose now I can be glad for reruns? (Never thought I'd say that.) "Between Bread" brings Guy back to another Diner, Drive-in or Dive.

This episode airs on the Food Network

And you can check the show index page or show episode guide for future episodes, and check the Between Bread episode page for future airings.

Guy's offering for this week's program is the 52 Chaps Submarine (which I can not find on the menu), with corned beef, ham and pit beef, at Chaps Charcoal Restaurant (a.k.a. Chaps Pit Beef) in Baltimore, Maryland.

Here's Chaps' segment from Diners, Drive-ins and Dives - "In the Family", which first aired in June of 2008.

From their website, Chaps says, "Chaps Pit Beef was established in 1987 by Gus and Bob. Chaps was a 12 X 15 shack with no electric, and or phone. We simply had beef, ham, and sausage served with joy and the hope of seeing delight, and enjoyment from the faces of our customers. In the beginning chaps struggled, but we soon had electric, and a phone. Donna joined our team and 22 years later were still here. Over the years chaps has grown, as well as our menu serving Hot Dogs, Mexican Ham, Fish platters, and much much more. Chaps has also been in The City Paper, "Baltimore's Best" from 1991-2005."

Actually 52 Chaps is on the menu that is posted in the restaurant next to cashier's stand. it is not a submarine though. When I order the sandwich I get it on rye without cheese. It is truly a "meatfest".

The sandwich he is referring to is simply called the Chaps Special Sub. Corned Beef, Ham, Beef, American Cheese. Trust me, I devoured one today, and its the only thing i haver ever ordered. It is beyond awesome. Really juicy and smoky and some onions and their bbq sauce makes it perfect, and I mean that.
