I would a whole lot rather you taste the flavor of the meat before you put anything on it. Taste the time and energy that went into it.

ssweeney's Review of Mustang Creek BBQ

  • Brisket: Brisket is a bit dry, but good flavor. Nice smoke ring. Good meat flavor with smoke balance. Good texture (except for dryness). Breaks into chunks.
  • Spare Rib: A gooey, fall-apart mess of meat and bone. This is a great, greasy rib! Can you cook a rib too long / can it be too tender?
    -- That's a rhetorical question --
  • Pork: Good. Good. Good. Moist & tender with good meat flavor. It's hard to go wrong with a good butt.
  • Sides: PS is mustardy. I like it! CS is crunchy and good. Beans are passable/good.
  • Rub: Rub is a bit salty, but not much other spice.
  • Atmosphere: This is a great joint! No signs, no a/c, no indoor plumbing... just BBQ. Pits are inside.
