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.
