Smoke Daddy's Review of Carters Bar-B-Que | "Show us your pits"

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.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Carters Bar-B-Que

  • Carters CrewAtmosphere: Pit in the center of the serving area; No a/c or ventilation, so inside is filled with hickory smoke... The serving line seemed slow, but we were handsomely rewarded for our patience! Drive thru seems to be a majority of their business.
  • Chopped: They were out of sliced brisket, so we settled for Chopped. Velvet texture... very fatty but also very flavorful. Mmmm - more greasy goodness.
  • Boudin: Good flavor - can detect some smoke in the finish. Loose; falls apart easily; heavy rice content.
  • Sides: Beans - decent, fairly standard. PS - different... good, but not outstanding... It does stand out as being different, though.
  • Atmosphere: Out of slaw; out of sliced beef, and we got the last bit of chopped. Could be the best place of the day... Of course, I said the same thing after Country Tavern, too! We're taking a couple of 'to-go' boxes for T-Bone in Sheveport.
  • Sausage: Spicy, greasy. Loose texture... something different, but we're having trouble putting our finger on it. Maybe curry powder??? Ugh - don't try it with the sauce, there's a major culture clash going on there.
  • Spare Rib: Greasy, fall-off-the bone goodness! Messy, but its so good that you don't even care.
