Here are a few notes about the ‘que:


  • Ribs-My ribs were slightly tough. The dry ribs had a nice bark, but I thought the bbq dry rub seasoning was applied too heavily.
  • Shoulder-Was tender, but a bit dry. I’m not a fan of shredding the pork in such a way that results in stringy pieces, which is what I got on my sandwich from Elwood’s Shack.


  • Ribs-Had slightly bitter smoke flavor from too much smoke. I still enjoyed them.
  • Shoulder-Had nice smoke flavor.

Sauce-Had a nice balance of tanginess, sweetness and spiciness.

Slaw-I thought the purple blue cheese slaw overpowered the smoked pork. Thankfully, Elwood’s offers a more traditional slaw as well.
