Que: Eau de Barbeque

I spend plenty of time around barbecue pits belching hardwood smoke, so my clothes often have the aroma of barbecue. For those days when I need to feel like a legitimate BBQ Snob without a trip to the BBQ joint I can now use 'Que' from Pork Barrel BBQ. If that's not convincing, you can check out their advertisement.

The aroma is a mix of the smokey notes of bourbon with a hint of vanilla and sandalwood, but one thing it does not smell like is my shirt after a day of BBQ'ing and pit tours. I guess I'll have to keep touring the Lone Star State for that authentic smoked meat aroma, but Que will do in a pinch.

I know I would love it; but somehow I don't think my SO will go for it.


Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
