Linked article describes signature sandwiches from different states. Mass was the "fluffenutter", which is "wicked awesome" and invented here.

Were they spot on in your state?

Outside of US:  What is the signature sandwich of your area?

MN here - I would agree that they are spot on with the Juicy Lucy. This burger was invented at Matt's Bar in South Minneapolis, to which I have visited many times. It is SO GOOD!

I was surprised they didn't go with the po'boy.

My biggest fear was that I lived in California my whole life without eating the signature sandwich.  But to my relief, I've had a french dip plenty of times.  I'm not even big on red meat, and I love the french dip.

I find it amazing that I've never even heard of a fluffenutter, until reading your post today. Fast forward 2 hours (til now)... I'm sitting here watching the Sopranos and at the end of the episode I just watched, Chris stops by his mother's house and asks her to make him a fluffenutter... Too weird.

Marshmallow fluff is a New England thing.  Put it in hot chocolate and it is over the top good!  Melt it on fudge sundaes, mmm.

in Michigan I'm not sure that a pasty qualifies as a sandwich but if you are ever in northern Michigan, run ...don't walk to get  one anywhere around Mackinaw Island.

I would have actually thought for Michigan it would have been the coney dog.   World famous in Detroit and Flint.

Pennsylvania has two sandwiches that deserve mentioning. From the eastern part of the state is the famous Philly Cheesesteak. From the west is the Primanti Brother's sandwich...

They actually call the style of sandwich they have pictured for Montana a clubfoot. Ironically, The Nuke is one of the sandwiches Staggering Ox makes that isn't a clubfoot...

I'm sure there are some people in Butte pissed off that ours isn't a Pork Chop Johns.

I just realized that the Delaware place has a location adjacent to my backyard. Their sandwich is "the bobbie," Thanksgiving dinner on a roll. I've had that type of sandwich before, but this one uses real in-house roasted turkey rather than deli slices, so I'll have to check it out.

What about the middle of the state?

I'm surprised a bit that the Italian Sub is the sandwich of New Jersey. Don't get me wrong, I love me an Italian, and I probably eat 2-3 or those a month, minimum, but for me, the NJ sandwich of choice is always going to be something involving pork roll. So evil. So Jersey.

Zagats missed on this one, I think.

Just went to it. It's awesome. Got half a bobbie and half an italian. Maybe the best italian sub I've ever had.

I rarely have a roast beef sandwich in New York, but I love falafel, banh mi, pulled pork and lobster roll sandwiches. I probably eat more falafel/hummus than hamburgers.

Hershey is in the middle of Pennsylvania, so I guess it would be chocolate covered cookie sandwich....

There is no question that the sandwich of Maine is the lobster roll. My wife and I went to Bar Harbor for a few days this summer and had some of the most D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S  lobster on the planet.

    • I am a Spurs supporter (England football team) and have a stamp with a cockerel on it. It's clean and it does the job. I think it looks really tacky when someone scribbles on a golf ball 
    • With the exception of club championship, most of the events I play in are essentially open to any amateurs who want to play.  You may have to do a little searching, but I'm guessing there are similar opportunities in your region.     
    • Nice pics! I can tell you're good at what you do.  From the pics, they remind me of Ping Ansers

    • Putting practice is very different from one player (and especially skill level to the next).   here are my impressions.   it is true that 30-50% of all shots are from the green.  but, you can't really look at it that way, because even on a good putting day, half of those are inevitable.  If you two putt every single green in regulation, I doubt you're gonna be too down on yourself.  so really, the strokes you are adding or subtracting from your card are the number of 3-putts and 1-putts.   For your average golfer, there are really just two things you need to accomplish to putt well.   Making every putt under 6 feet.  and putting every putt outside that 6-foot circle to within the circle.   1) making every putt within 6 feet this is really just about repetition.  and it really doesn't matter where you are getting your reps.  I have an 8 ft putting mat in my living room.  If I spend an hour just hitting balls on this over, and over, and, over, I notice is great deal of improvement in making my 5 footers.  I know it sounds simple, but just learning how to repeatedly hit the ball straight and having the confidence standing over the ball to hit it straight makes a huge difference.   note: I assume as you get better and better at golf (and putting), this method of practice will have less and less of a positive impact.  This really only helps you become confident in your putting stroke, once you've got that down, you've got bigger fish to fry.   2) hitting everything outside that 6 foot circle to within 6 feet.   This one is a bit trickier.  I think the best practice for this one is to get to a practice green and putt from many different distances.  and changing it up very frequently (as opposed to putting many balls from one distance and then moving).  This one is all about feel.  and feel only comes with practice.     If you can get really good at these two simple skills, you can certainly become a passable putter.   Now the next step is raising your conversion rate on 10-15 foot putts.   I think this step takes a lot more work and a much better understanding of how to read a green as well as being a lot more precise with your pace.   If I ever figure this stuff out, I'll do my best to share.
