2008: In a shack that serves to-go BBQ only, comes forth some of the best meat in the region. Orders are given at an outdoor window to the somewhat confused staff. That may be an unfair assessment, but this place has not been used to the level of business it had on this Saturday morning. At 10:55 (it opens at 11:00) there were already 4 cars haphazardly parked in the unmarked gravel lot waiting for their already called-in orders. I just waited by the window enjoying the smoky smell until my food arrived.
It took nearly 15 minutes to receive a simple 2-meat plate, but it was worth the wait. The ribs here were large and meaty. They had a nice crust, good tenderness, and the fat was well rendered. The flavor was excellent, but the smoke could have been more potent. The brisket came sauced, unfortunately. It had no crust or smoke line, and seemed to have no rub. However, the smoke flavor was still present. It was nicely tender moist, but more flavor was needed.
