Hi Dorothy,

I'm sorry, I can't find anything at all about this. I might be able to find at least a mention if you can tell me the name of the grocery store.

I will post this. Maybe someone will remember it.

We had similar type of que sandwiches in Oklahoma in the 60s.  You could smell it when walking 
in the store.  As I remember, it was “Hill billy barbeque sauce”.  They would use an electric 
frying pan to heat the meat.  Sandwiches were 25 cents.  Usually a hillbilly sauce company 
representative, made the sandwiches to sell the sauce.  My dad watched the method of making, 
and then all you had to buy was sauce and buns.  Get a can of corned beef.  Not hash the kind 
opened with a key.  Put in pan with sauce and heat on low.  You can add too much sauce because 
as the meat heats up and you stir it gets soupy if you add too much sauce.  I don’t think 
Hillbilly sauce is made anymore, but use your favorite brand.  A very quick meal and you would 
never guess it is canned corned beef.
