bkarau's Review of Drexlers Bar-B-Que | "Show us your pits"

I'm not saying that I haven't found spectacular plates of barbecue during my travels. I have. But the standouts were few and far between, and all of 'em at places that still cook exclusively with wood.

bkarau's Review of Drexlers Bar-B-Que

  • Sausage: Unremarkable ... no, wait - it's pretty good. Small diameter links
  • Potato Salad: Finely mashed, like paste.
  • Brisket: Fatty, but good flavor and bark.
  • Spare Rib: Very wet; kinda spongy. Good smoke flavor with a medium rub.
  • Sauce: Complex taste. Cinnamon?
  • Hot Link: Headliner meat. Homemade. Very grainy fill and tough casing, but a nice burn - cayenne & paprika?
  • Atmosphere: Good smell inside. Lots of sports stuff as you would imagine. **MAJOR DOWNARROW: 6 MARVIN ZINDLER AWARDS FOR KITCHEN CLEANLINESS**
  • Beans: Pintos: Ranch style. A bit soft, but strong finish.
