dbarrow2's Review of Mustang Creek BBQ | "Show us your pits"

Smoke is mysterious, fire is uncertain, and pit men are expensive. So the mystery, uncertainty, and expense of taking the chance to make great barbecue is being replaced by the quantifiable methods of always making pretty good 'cue.

dbarrow2's Review of Mustang Creek BBQ

  • Overall: I like this hole in the wall place. Even in a tin shack with no a/c the heat was tolerable. The Q was very respectable even though I personnally never viewed any Mustang's and never saw a creek just a stream coming from one of the porta pots.
  • Sausage: Ummmm Ummmm Good if you like to eat invisible sausage. All out of that today boys.
  • Spare Rib: Ribs are sensational falling right off of the bone. They could use a little more rub and spices but very nice texture.
  • Sauce: Sauce had a nice bite to it but it tasted much like some of the commercial brands that are out on the market.
  • Pulled Pork: Pull Pork was fantastic with awesome flavor that just melts in your mouth. I gave this one some high numbers even late in the day.
  • Coleslaw: Coleslaw was not too exciting but just perfect, I loved it.
  • Brisket: The brisket is very nice with a little bark and a smooth flavor.
  • Beans: Beans have nothing special to them.
  • Atmosphere: I found this joint with Buzz Head one day in search of some good grub after a long dreary drive from the valley. First off there are no visible signs from 59S except a large tin building and two porta potties. This is my type of place; simple tin shack with two cute young girls working the counter handling all of your BBQ needs. If I wasn't so full of Q I might strike up a not so intelligent conversation with both of them.
