Here are a few notes about the ‘que:


  • Shoulder-Was tender and did have some crust (bark), though it was quite soggy.


  • Shoulder-With wood stacked by what appears to be a screened in pit-house, I expected meat kissed with beautiful wood smoke. Unfortunately, the pork lacked any smoke flavor. Even worse, the meat itself tasted funky, as though it had decayed. The clerk did tell me that the meat was smoked once a week (on Thursday I think). We were already back on the road, so I couldn’t return it, nor could I finish it. It could be one of the worst bbq experiences I’ve ever had. Evidently, others have had a similar experience.

Sauce-Was a standard sweet and tangy sauce.
