Also: I remember a M*A*S*H episode where Hawkeye sent off for a certain type of Ribs and I think they were from Chicago. What's up with Chicago style food ?

It's from Chicago!  (The attraction should be self-evident...)

Most Chicago style things are pretty good.  Dogs, barbeque - sometimes, pizza not so much - northeast varieties are better.

And never. EVER.  put ketchup on a hotdog.  In Chicago that's considered sacrilege.

Ketchup serves only two purposes:
1.  Making tomato soup in a restaurant when you have no money.
2.  Adding color to horseradish for coctail sauce with shrimp.

I've never thought of Chicago as a BBQ mecca.  What is the Chicago style as opposed to Memphis, KC, or the Carolinas?

Don't know for sure, but if I had to guess, based on other Chicago stuff, that they stole the barbeque style from somewhere else.  (There was even a pretty good barbeque place in Milwaukee called Saz's.  Kind of a KC style.)  There was a LOT of meat processing/shipping through there at one time.  They could have learned a little (stolen ideas) about barbeque from all the livestock related travelers through the area

My personal preference is dry rub style and dab it in the sauce if one must.  I think the highest compliment I ever got on my ribs was my future mother in law telling me "don't bother" when I asked what flavor rib sauce she wanted "because putting any on your ribs would be sacrilege."

Sauce on ribs and brisket is a sin. I only use it on pulled pork and sausages. Why do I feel dirty after posting this?

They do have a style!  Very very sweet sauces.  Usually wet ribs, and the sauce is a deep caramelized ketchup based mop.

I do not like it.  Every time i'm up there I have a friend that insists I try it again and again.  Last time I was at either Ray's or Woody's and the sauce (ketchup skin I call it) literally stuck to my teeth like taffy.  The main technique is that they "mop" it during the smoke, then hit it with the ultra sweet ketchup sauce,  flame kiss it on the grill until it caramelizes, and serve it sticky.

There are several good BBQ spots in Chicago, and most of those advertise "Texas Style."  The ones I've tasted still use the sweet sauce but they use a dry rub only and serve the meat dry.

Not within 20 miles of where I'm at, and that place in PHX was great. Nice little family run place. Went there so often they would start making what I wanted before I got to the register.

I've quit eating gyros very often once it dawned on me they are probably loaded with all sorts of preservatives.  I've got a recipe to make it myself but still have not done so.  I've seen a few places on Diners, Drive Ins, & Dives which make their own from scratch on a spit using thin sliced beef & lamb.  Jim's Never On Sunday is still the place in Tulsa for gyros.  Next time you make it here, lunch is on me.

They have good ones, but I think there's a challenger out at Shisk-A-Bob's on 31st/Garnett.  And they have, quite simply, the best cucumber sauce I've ever had.

I wouldn't have picked up on that had you not invited a remark. Allow me.

Self-depracation.  One of my strong suits.  If you can't openly laugh at yourself or allow others to do so, get the F off the planet.  It also doesn't give you the right to laugh at someone else if you can't laugh at yourself.
