Smoke Daddy's Review of Bun N Barrel | "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.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Bun N Barrel

Joint: 

MAIN FARE:Bun-n-Barrel Spread

  • Sausage - Nice (from Mertz) - medium grind and packed with great flavors... I keep coming back to the sausage; its good!
  • Spare Rib - Somewhat tough & chewy, but flavorful. Not too greasy... good smoke flavor.
  • Beef Clod - Great smoke! Nice texture; juicy with good layer of fat for extra flavor.

OTHER FARE:

  • Potato Salad - Good soft taters; nice.
  • Beans - nice texture and good flavors (especially for first thing in the morning).

ATMOSPHERE:Bun-n-Barrel Pit2

  • Carlos has been here 51 years, and gives a great tour!
  • Bonus points for 'real pit BBQ' inside the city limits.
  • They use oak to smoke shoulder clod overnight.
  • We got a great tour from Carlos... who also likes to explore 'true bbq' in his spare time.
  • This drive-in bbq joint has great history - I like it!!!
