ssweeney's Review of Carls Barbecue

Joint: 
  • Sausage: Regular sausage is similar to the jalapeno, but without the spice.
  • Sausage: Jalapeno sausage - Medium grind and medium packed. Sweet on the start and spicy on the finish. The spice is not overpowering... very good.
  • Spare Rib: Sweet rub. Good meat pulls off the bone with a tug. Smoke not as noticeable as in the brisket. Second rib was jerky.
  • Brisket: Long-grained. Pulls apart with a little tug. Very smokey, but a bit chewy.
  • Atmosphere: Right on 290, and right next to a small airfield. Has a down-home feel, complete with a kids playground. Roadside BBQ - on a larger scale.
  • Sides: PS and CS are standard fare.
  • Sauce: Sweet, tomato-based with a little spice on the finish.
  • Pork: Very tender, even if its a touch dry. Good pork flavor... smoke not as noticeable.
