One of these days they'll get me.  They'll make me change my way of cooking, and when they do, that'll hurt my product. The style of barbecue we have here in Lexington is very unique. I think it will start to fade away.

bkarau's Review of Holy Smokes

Joint: 
  • Coleslaw: Very good with large chunks. The highlight (sadly).
  • Potato Salad: Way too much egg.
  • Beans: Pintos are cooked to death - okay, it's late. Baked are bland and overcooked.
  • Atmosphere: Very new. Cheesey pig on sign. Not a joint - City of Dallas health code compliance ruins it.
  • Loin Back Rib: Solid and good. Falls off bone. Good bark.
  • Sausage: Ass.
  • Pulled Pork: Decent. Would be good on a bun with a ton of sauce.
  • Beef: Serviceable. Tears easily.
