Here are a few notes about the ‘que:
- Ribs-Were sloppy tender as though they had been parboiled.
- Shoulder-Was tender and moist, but maintained proper texture. It included some bits of bark, but I would’ve liked more.
- Ribs-Lacked any discernable smoke flavor and was completely smothered in sauce.
- Shoulder-Did have some decent smoke flavor, but I like more. The shoulder sandwich is similar to the one from Tops BBQ, only, not as good. Overall, I did enjoy the bbq sandwich though.
Sauce-Tangy style, similar to the one used by Tops BBQ, which is actually Blue Plate BBQ sauce, from the same company that makes Blue Plate mayonnaise.
Slaw-Was a finely chopped crunchy, sweet and tangy slaw that complimented the sandwich.
Barbecue Stew-Supposedly a recipe from 1900. I wasn’t impressed at all. My wife and I both felt that it was simply a doctored up can soup. And to be a bbq stew, it had no smoke flavor. I didn’t taste terrible, but for what it is marketed to be, it fell way short for us.
