One of these days they'll get me.  They'll make me change my way of cooking, and when they do, that'll hurt my product. The style of barbecue we have here in Lexington is very unique. I think it will start to fade away.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Brothers Bar Bq

Joint: 

MAIN FARE:Brothers Whole Crew

  • Cabrito - Oh, this is GOOD! It makes up for the cabrito disaster across the street at Coopers.  The texture is somewhat coarse, but the meat just melts in the mouth...
  • Rib - Got the end of the rack again.  There's still alot of meat on the bone.  Coarse texture with a bit of chew... then magically this flavoful, buttery rib melts in your mouth (that's twice I've written 'melts in your mouth' in the same review).
  • Brisket - Tough & Lean.  Mesquite grilled?
  • Pork Chop - Fatty cut of chop, but the flavor and texture remind me of the rib!
  • Sausage - Very firm .  Nicely spiced with a bit of heat on the finish.  Better than Coopers, but the spice profile is not my preference.Brothers Crew
  • Hot sausage - Oh, now this is how I like it!  Spicy goodness here.  Both sausages are sourced from Hudson's in Austin.
  • Sirloin - Tough.  Need a chainsaw.
  • Pork Steak - Pretty much like the sirloin.

OTHER FARE:

  • Corn nuggets - Freaking fantastic!  These are great.
  • Other sides - not remarkable.
