bkarau's Review of Joes Barbeque Co | "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 Joes Barbeque Co

Joint: 
  • Potato Salad: Like the slaw, typical but well done. Balanced flavor, but uninspiring.
  • Brisket: Firm crosscut. Thin sliced. Right bark and good smoke flavor. A very good standup brisket.
  • Coleslaw: Typical but good. Cabbagey. Good fresh taste.
  • Beans: Pintoss: Good, firm, right consistency. Flavor as average to above average.
  • Sauce: KC Masterpiece
  • Sausage: Tough casing. Good texture but too monolithic. Flavor OK.
  • Beef Rib: Good. Bark a bit soft - may have been aggressively mopped.
  • Atmosphere: There is way too much capital invested here to be a real joint. Good dead animals. Gas-fired mesquite pits. Family-style. But signs for weddings, flowers, and fajitas detract from the mission
  • Spare Rib: Firm and clean. Thinner bark and lower smoke. Slightly sticking to bone but pretty good.
  • Dessert: Peach cobbler: peaches a bit soft but great heterogeneous texture. Second bite had a great peach but less flavor.

    Cherry cobbler: melts in your mouth. Great strong flavor and good flaky crust.
