What we've learned about ordering Lexington style barbecue meat:

White chopped (Slightly sweet, finely chopped, the leanest of the lean shoulder meat)  

White coarse chopped (pictured on a sandwich)

                  White sliced (pictured with red slaw)

Brown sliced or coarse (The outside of the shoulder. This is the smokiest, slightly salty and crispier part of the shoulder, occasionally with a little fat mixed in.)

Brown chopped (From the same part of the shoulder as above, but finely chopped.)
