Just like Moses and his people wandered the desert, I've been traveling the back roads of this country on my own journey to the Barbecue Promised Land.  I'd have taken better notes had I known I'd be writing a book.

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:

  • 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
