Smoke Daddy's Review of Smittys Bar-B-Q | "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 Smittys Bar-B-Q

Joint: 

Smittys BarBQ SpreadI would come back for the homeade sausage and potato salad.  Or I might just try a plate of their soul food: Pork chop; mustard greens; corn casserole; and cornbread.

MAIN FARE:

  • Brisket - Good Smoke. Fat trimmed off the slices.  This is a "stand-up" style brisket: firm & lean.  Slices turn out to be a little dry.  Good.
  • Rib - Mild smoke. Tender, but not quite done @ the breast bone
  • Homeade Sausage - Course-grind... very good!  Made with brisket???
  • Sausage - Commercial product... Hillshire Farms?
  • Cabrito - Yea!  Rich chunks of dark meat here; Has some 'funk' to the flavor... a bit gamey.

Note: all meats are dusted with "magic spice" (rub)

OTHER FARE:

Smittys BarBQ Counter

  • Beans - Red Beans & Rice; Can substitute pintos.  Good.
  • Potato Salad - Interesting orange tint.  Texture is soft/loose.  And flavors include vinegar, oil, and mustard.  This is definitely not your run-of-the mill ps.  Different and very good.
  • Sauce - Thin consistency, with heavy addition of liquid smoke.
  • Hot Sauce - Mustard, garlic, & cayenne.  Good.

ATMOSPHERE:

  • Good drive-up "joint" appealSmittys BarBQ Meat
  • Good use of longhorns in decor
  • Service is not fast... this is "slow food"
  • Rest rooms located outside of the dining room
  • J&R pits are out back
