The lack of a smoky scent in the parking lot left little hope that this joint would produce standout meat. The proof was on the plate. The ribs were mushy with poorly rendered fat. The crust had a hint of flavor from the pepper rub, but there was little smoke flavor detected. The brisket slices were dry, smokeless, and nearly flavorless. This brisket needed more than sauce to save it.
