bkarau's Review of Grand Prize BBQ | "Show us your pits"

Every joint, from the best to the worst, seems to have people who think the food served there is the very best. Even bad barbecue is somebody's favorite.

bkarau's Review of Grand Prize BBQ

Joint: 
  • Potato Salad: Standard. Strong on the dill. OK
  • Beans: Pintos: Slightly overcooked. Hot hang time
  • Atmosphere: Most of the clientele is wearing coveralls with a name patch. Good memorabilia - an oil derrick in front. But this is an ex-seafood joint, with multiple portholes and seafood on the sign.
  • Brisket: A good standup. Firm, medium ring, and crosscut. Some of it is cut too thin and dried out quickly
  • Sausage: Good casing. Peppery. Texture OK. Slightly homogeneous.
  • Coleslaw: medium-fine cut and cabbagey flavor. Sauce is not a factor. Pretty good.
  • Spare Rib: Good firmness and ring, but greasy. Clean pull. Weak bark prevents a higher rating.
  • Sauce: Very thick. Liquid smoke. Good moderate burn.
