Smoke Daddy's Review of Oklahoma Joes Bbq and Catering | "Show us your pits"

Health food may be good for the conscience but Oreos taste a hell of a lot better.

— Robert Redford

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.

MAIN FARE:Oklahoma Joes Spread

  • 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

OTHER FARE:

Oklahoma Joes Cook

  • 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

ATMOSPHERE:

  • 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.
