The more I think about barbecue, the more I start thinking that it’s one of our most important road food traditions.  The reason that it remains vital, besides the fact it’s good, is that it cannot be tamed.  It can’t be gotten out of a can; it can’t be frozen ahead.  BBQ doesn’t negotiate, and it suffers fools badly.  Barbecue requires time, smoke, and above all, skill.  Which is why attempts to corporatize it ultimately fail.

Feasting on Asphalt, Episode 2 - I Smell Pork

Smoke Daddy's Review of Fuzzys

Joint: 

This joint has a solid history and good local following.  My favorites were the banana pudding, Brunswick Stew, and BBQ Slaw.  

MAIN FARE:Fuzzy's Spread

  • Sliced - This has been in a steam tray for quite a while.  It is lean and very tender.  Would be good with some fried rice, or as sweet-and-sour pork.
  • Chopped - Buffalo chopper in use... meat is "minced".  Moist & Tender, but where is the smoke flavor?

OTHER FARE:

  • BBQ Slaw - Red, with some dark greens mixed in... some heat detected on the finish.
  • Slaw - Cream-based and green (although not 'glowing' like at Wilber's).
  • Pup - Crispy w/ a salty coating.  Not as sweet inside as what we are finding.  Longer, pretzel-like shapes (hand-squeezed into the fryer).  Because it is somewhat thin, there is not as much bread inside.Fuzzy's Pit
  • Dip - Lexington style
  • Brunswick Stew - Nice.  Got some heat to it... I like it!
  • Banana Pudding - Homemade.  Texture is great - base is custardy, and meringue/topping is nice.

ATMOSPHERE:

  • Cross between a DQ (looks) and a classic Diner (feels).
  • Sauce is kept warm in coffee pots
  • Pits are not in operation during our visit
