The more I think about barbecue, the more I start thinking that it’s one of our most important road food traditions.  The reason that it remains vital, besides the fact it’s good, is that it cannot be tamed.  It can’t be gotten out of a can; it can’t be frozen ahead.  BBQ doesn’t negotiate, and it suffers fools badly.  Barbecue requires time, smoke, and above all, skill.  Which is why attempts to corporatize it ultimately fail.

crosen's Review of Doziers Grocery

Joint: 
  • Atmosphere: Its a grocery meat market/BBQ joint. Caters to the to-go crowd. Awards on walls helps to remind you they actually smoke the Q here.
  • Brisket: Tough, lots of cartilage, moist, not much flavor
  • Spare Rib: Chewy, burnt smoke taste, wierl red paprika rub. Not good.
  • Sausage: Nice smoky flavor, mild, nice casing.
  • Sauce: Runny, tangy sauce
  • Potato Salad: Standard mayo salad.
  • Coleslaw: Ass.
  • Beans: Mushy, bland, chili beans.
  • Overall: Good if you had to make a quick stop, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.
