Being a true Irishman, I can honestly say that St. Patrick’s Day is the one day a year America truly embraces my Irish heritage (even if it’s just a big excuse to drink too much Guinness). This is also the time of year that local markets are flooded with an overstock of corned beef briskets. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the occasional bowl of corned beef and cabbage just much as the next guy, but that’s not really a dish I choose to eat all year long. Instead, my stockpiled freezer of clearance sale corned beef briskets get tossed into the smoker to make fresh homemade pastrami.

It’s taken a full week, but I’ve finally managed to dig myself out from under the mountain of hate mail I received from posting a vegetable recipe on our BBQ site. Well, we’ve heard your complaints and now we’re firing back with a Super Bowl themed recipe that’s sure to satisfy your carnivorous tendencies.
When Ben Roethlisberger burst onto the NFL scene in his rookie season, local Pittsburgh restaurant Peppi’s Old Tyme Sandwich Shop anointed him with the highest honor a young athlete can receive…his own personal sandwich. By pulling inspiration from Big Ben’s physical prowess and on-field abilities, the guys at Peppi’s came up with a unique blend of beef, sausage, eggs, cheese and onions to represent their young stud. Here we are a few years later and Mr. Roethlisberger has once again led his team into the biggest game of the year. To honor their accomplishment, we’re paying tribute to the Steel Curtain by constructing this new found Pittsburgh classic…with a few slight modifications!
