Let me start off by saying I love BBQ and will generally seek out any BBQ place to try. Having said that a guy has opened a small place about a 1/4 mile from where I work, as he was getting the place ready I was really looking forward to eating there.
Now that I’ve eaten there probably 8-10 times trying several items on the menu I’ve reached the conclusion that I just don’t care much for the food, to me the meats are bland and the slabs of ribs though huge are generally grisly and very fatty
The funny thing is he seems to be doing it the right way, has a huge pile of wood and big smoker that is constantly going. He has a ton of experience, learned much of his trade in Memphis and a couple of food columnist have given him good writeups.
It really a shame because I would love to support a small independent restaurant owner like him but I just can’t see wasting my money on food I don’t like.
