Smoke Daddy's Review of Oklahoma Joes Bbq and Catering
Beans and slaw lead the way. Pork products were the best of the meat offerings.
- Brisket - Sliced against the grain (traditional), but sliced wafer-thin. Pulls apart easily. A little fat left on top of each slice.
- Spare Rib - Big ribs. Nice color; good smoke ring. Tasty. Not much spice in the rub (neither sweet nor hot). Still a little tough on the rib tips ("knuckles").
- Pork - Lean, and pulled into strips. Nice flavor in the bark (rub). Tender and moist without being fatty.
- Sausage - Smooth and firmly packed. Nice meat/spice balance.
- Meats all pre-sliced
- Beans - Kidney and black bean mix. Tomato-based sauce with onion and big chunks of beef. Sweet and tangy. Well-balanced. Very good.
- Potato salad - Good mustard-based with heavy dill
- Slaw - Crunch with spice. Lite creamy texture. Good.
- Sauce - Flecks of black pepper. Smooth, red, partially translucent. Tangy, but liquid smoke is too much.
- Hot Sauce - A little darker; bolder & very spicy
- Just what we needed: BBQ beer, & whisky @ one stop
- Funky combination of businesses, but it seems to work
- Some competition momentos ("Slaughterhouse Five"), but not overdone
- Straight-up. No pretense here.
