B-Side BBQ Food Picks:
Smoked Brown Sugar Rubbed Brisket ($10 half order) looked great. Juicy and tender goodness.
Pulled Pork Sandwich on Semifreddi’s Roll choice of sauce mustard, or traditional ($8.50) was a large sandwich topped off with a ton coleslaw. Lots of tender pork and a decent bun.
Jerk Spiced Baby Backs ($9 half order) was a bit small, we would order a full order next time.
OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
