bkarau's Review of Big Smiths Bar-B-Q

  • Atmosphere: 'Now THIS looks like a joint!' Rambling building, lots of rusty steel on roof and walls. Fair amount of junk in front. Distinctively different smell from broad product line. Checkered tablecloths offset by goot dead animals and chipboard finish. Great help and super pits, although propane starter used.
  • Coleslaw: Heavy on mayo. Good leaf but too creamy.
  • Potato Salad: Mashed and very mustardy.
  • Pork Loin: Very tender - almost buttery. Good flavor.
  • Beef: Firm but supple. Breaks easily. Good texture.
  • Overall: Big Smith himself looked after us.
  • Spare Rib: Baked to a soft munge.
  • Sausage: Very firm. Hard to distinguish casing from filling by texture. Boiled?
  • Sauce: Standard.
  • Hot Link: Hot, good texture with good bite.
  • Beef Rib: Salty. Not baked. Nice ring - very flavorful.
