Stubb's is probably now more well known for live music and the bottled sauce at your local Kroger, and there's a reason. The ribs here are large and meaty, but they're also tough, to salty, devoid of smoke, and poorly rendered. The brisket was a little better with a decent crust that held some smoke flavor, but overall it was dry, and a bit roast-beefy.
