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 Kozy Kitchen

Joint: 
  • Veal: Very tender - fat has great flavor. Nice treat.
  • Hot Link: Classic. Very greasy and crumbling. Moderate spice and chewey casing.
  • Potato Salad: Awesome, complex flavor. A coarser chop would make this perfect.
  • Sauce: Ass. This is why we separate for the tour.
  • Spare Rib: Good bark, perfect pull, well smoked. Just a little bit chewey, but I inhaled the whole think at once.
  • Atmosphere: Green interior, circa 1946. Nice tunes on '200 Selection Stereo' jukebox. Bar filled with locals. No Pest Strip over door.
  • Sauce: HOT
  • Pork: More subtle flavor than the veal. Weaker rub, but melts in your mouth.
  • Beans: Great. A tad soft, but super flavor.
  • Brisket: Good bark, ring, and rub, but a bit chewey.
