Smoke Daddy's Review of Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que

<<Update: This joint burned in March 2011, and has closed>>

The brisket, pork rib, atmosphere, and pork chop were all very good to outstanding.  The beef rib was cooked right, but over-rubbed.  Sides were standard fare.

MAIN FARE:Old Time Spread

  • Brisket - Fatty and lean are both "ON" today!  Good texture and great flavors... yum.
  • Rib - Now THIS is a good rib! Wowsa.
  • Sausage - OK, this kinda leaves me flat.  Doesn't taste as good as it looked.
  • Pork Chop - Double Boner... of course!  Thick 'n nice.  But a bit tough on the interior.
  • Beef Rib - Cooked until rendered.  Easily comes off the bone.  Rich beef flavor... but too much rub!

OTHER FARE:

  • Beans - Seasoned with salt and black pepper (the rub).
  • Potato Salad - Standard mustard-based flavor. Texture is a mix of mashed and chunks.
  • Slaw - Ugh... there is a flavor here that shouldn't be here!

ATMOSPHERE:

  • Coopers spin-off with pits enclosed in a screened room (smokehouse)
  • Cowboy-style bbq: Mesquite burned in a retort, with coals shoveled into the pits - directly under the meat
  • Sandwiched between KFC and Weinerschnitzel... it still feels like a barbecue joint
Main Fare: 
8
Other Fare: 
5
Atmosphere: 
9
