2008: The proprietors here have an odd Elvis fascination, and a hard-to-find location. You can easily see the place and its giant pig-shaped smoker from the highway, but getting there is another story. The brisket here was moist, tender, and well seasoned, but the fat was not well rendered, and it had little crust. Despite the nice smoke line, there was little smoke flavor. The ribs were dry with no crust, and little smoke, but still had decent flavor.
