Shaved or Unshaven?

When purchasing deli meat what do you prefer? Meat chipped or sliced so thin it's translucent, a thin but solid slice, or a thick and slightly chewy slice?. I myself prefer the first and stacked high like a dagwood. I even prefer my steak sandwiches that way, in paper thin slices. Conversely my Dad preferred what I call..slabs of the stuff. What's your poison?

    I like ham, dried beef and smoked turkey chipped but Lebanon bologna, hard salami and cheeses sliced.

    Oh, it's deli meat we're talking about! The title of the thread had me wondering there for a second...... Shaved for me please, and lots of it!

    If someone else is making the sandwich, shaved is fine. If, however, I'm buying the meat from a deli to make sandwiches later make it thinly sliced please. (I lose my sanity trying to seperate the shaved stuff!)

    I like Deli meats shaved- other things just neatly trimmed.

    I like it thin, but not shaved. I am the nemesis of the cold cut counter. As I approach, they say, Oh, dammit, there's that old , haggard, beastly, presumptuous, fascist, pr**k. He probably wants that half a pound of Boar's head ham, quarter pound of mesquite turkey, and quarter pound of double Gloucester cut too thin. Why can't he just get bologna from the wall like everyone else and call it a day!

    Yeah, and you probably refuse to serve ketchup to children, you fascist pr**k.

    Super thin slices of meats for me, and only slightly thicker on the cheeses.

    Since I'm here, I may as well come right out with it and say that I even like a little olive loaf on occasion. Not the prepackaged Oscar Mayer stuff; it has to be fresh from the deli counter. Honestly, I have never met anyone else who eats it. Am I the only one?

    I'm with Grampy, and others, on this one. BTW, how does one approach and answer the deli counter when asked, "How Thin?"
    I've learned the number settings on the slicer and just asked them to set it at that number. But really, what do you say?

    Carl: I generally say very, very thin, and the deli people always show me the first slice. In fact that is becoming the norm, I find, to show the customer the first slice. Unless the deli peole "zero out" the numbers on the slicer can be slightly off.

    Bushie: You should know that particularly on my Venezualan beaver cheese sandwiches I prefer Patagonian meteorite-ground mustard from the southern shore of Austria. I know what some of you are thinking -- but Austria's a landlocked nation. Not true! Anyone who has seen Sound of Music knows that Captain von Trapp was in the Austrian navy. Ergo, there must be a shore somewhere, even if it is tucked away in the Alps.

    I know what you mean. They hate it when they see me coming, too. You see, I insist that it be sliced thin, and stacked neatly. They prefer to just let it fall from the slicer in a pile.

    Grampy,
    The good Captain was involved with the Navy of the Austrian Empire in the First World War. The Empire at the time of that war included the port of Trieste (Sp?). There was indeed a fleet. That Navy disappeared after the war ended so did the Austrian access to the sea. So he would have been a land-bound sailor for over 20 years when his recall was issued.
    That's why when he was recalled to serve in the German Navy in the late 30's when Germay 'Annexed' Austria, he elected to leave the country. That and having Julie Andrews for a wife would have caused me to run away into the mountains myself.

    Mayor: Running away with Julie certainly would have led you into a trapp!

    And thanks for the history lesson!

    Thanks for that. And thanks also for the olive loaf thing too. I was just about convinced I was on my own with that one.

    Chipped chopped ham. (Fun to say, isn't it?) I don't care how neatly it's stacked because it gets messily separated and put in a sandwich bun (not bread) with shallot mustard. Served with locally made potato chips and cold beer. Can you see me drooling?

    I love olive loaf!

    As far as thickness goes, It all depends on how I feel. Sonetimes only paper thin will work, other times I like it nice and chunky.

    ok... first of all i never heard of shaved deli meat till i moved out here to indiana- but then again they didn't call them 'cold cuts' either.. i prefer my deli meat sliced thin= but not so thin that you can't pull it apart when trying to make sandwiches... shaved is nice for somethings -- but not for making lunches! have to agree with ocdreamr when they (sorry don't want to be gender incorrect here) said.... "I lose my sanity trying to seperate the shaved stuff!!" majorly agree with that one...

    Hah, so I am not alone. No longer will I have to look over my shoulder to see who is watching when I order a pound of olive loaf, thick sliced. Or heaven forbid, when I get really brave and publically purchase my personal favorite, pickle and pimento loaf...
