Smoke Daddy's Review of RJ Barbecue

Joint: 

The potato salad and peach cobbler were outstanding, followed closely by the rib.  Beans and sauce were also very good.  And, although we didn't try them, the Fish & Chips looked awesome.

MAIN FARE:RJ Spread

  • Brisket - Good color, moisture, texture, and tenderness.  Nice smoke ring, but bitter.
  • Rib - Moist & tender.  Pulls easily from the bone.  Not overly greasy... a good rib!  2nd rib has a touch of bitterness in the bark - but still a very good rib.
  • Sausage - Commercial taste & consistency, with a bit of spice on the finish.
  • Note: meats served "sauced" by default

OTHER FARE:

  • Beans - Excellent flavor.  Very good.RJ Staff
  • Potato Salad - Mustard-based, mashed style, with dill pickle and cayenne pepper.  Outstanding.
  • Peach Cobbler - Homemade & excellent!  I would consider it more of a peach crisp...

ATMOSPHERE:

  • Pad site on the corner of Byrant & 14th.  An old Popeyes or some such?
  • 3 years here, and 3 years on MLK prior
  • Smokehouse is screened enclosure next to main buildingRJ RJ
  • Drive-through
  • Simple, open dining room with sparse decor
  • Women run the front of the house and make sides and desserts
  • Charles is the prototypical "sullen man with a squint" as referenced by Calvin Trillin
  • Friday is Fish Day, and the fish & chips look awesome!
