ssweeney's Review of Crosstown Bar-B-Q | "Show us your pits"

Smoke is mysterious, fire is uncertain, and pit men are expensive. So the mystery, uncertainty, and expense of taking the chance to make great barbecue is being replaced by the quantifiable methods of always making pretty good 'cue.

ssweeney's Review of Crosstown Bar-B-Q

 MAIN FARE:T-Bone with Crosstown Staff

  • Brisket - Cut from the 'high', 'moist', or fatty side of a  fresh brisket.  Slices are marbled and tender.  Not too smoky, though...
  • Ribs - Cut from a fresh rack. Mmmm good.  Great flavor lives here!  Some sweetness present on the finish.  Subtle flavors... very nice!  Meat is a little on the fatty side.
  • Sausage - Good flavor.  Loosely packed, with a subtle spice.  Nice!

OTHER FARE:

  • Sauce - Sweet, red, and kinda thin.  Doesn't cover the flavor of the meat
  • Potato Salad - Mustard/Creamy style.  Firm chunks of potatoes, but consistency is a little soupy.
  • Beans - OK.  

ATMOSPHERE:Crosstown Pit Boss

  • Down-home folks - very nice!  They make us feel welcome and T-Bone shares some brewskis
  • Brand new corrugated tin building; sparce decor
  • Bigger than original, but farther from the tracks
  • Meat served from foil and steam trays
  • Offset pit using oak wood
  • Too new - felt a little sterile
