ssweeney's Review of Smittys Bar-BQ

Joint: 

Main Fare:

  • Brisket is moist and falling apart... but chewy.  Probably has been held for a while.  Clean flavors, but no rub.
  • Sausage is a commercial product (Hillshire Farms?).
  • Rib is tasty.  Falling off the bone, but there are multiple textures in this piece.  Chewy on the finish.
  • Hot Link has a mushy texture.  It is salty, with a spice that has a little afterburn.

Other Fare:

  • Potato salad is mostly mashed with a few small chunks.  Good flavor.
  • Slaw is minced.  Tastes like KFC.
  • Pintos are good.
  • Cobblers are good, but the blackberry is better than the peach.

Atmosphere:

  • Two DPS cruisers in the parking lot.  Troopers like it.
  • Small joint closes at 1pm on Saturday, and we make it just in time.
  • Friendly owner shows us around.  He has an old masonry pit that he has mostly stopped using due to maintenance requirements.  He now uses a Souther Pride gasser which sits directly across from his brick pit.
