BBQ


Went over to Oldsmar Smokin’ BBQ for lunch today.  We’ve driven by a few times and finally made it in.  And I’m glad we did!  I tried the two meat combo and Loren ordered the Skippy Sandwich.

 

You get your choice of meats with the combos so I choose ribs & brisket, plus mac & cheese and coleslaw.  The mac & cheese was one of their “competition sides” and it lived up to it.  Creamy with a great flavor & texture.  I’d definitely order it again.  The ribs were tender with a savory rub on them.  Just a hint of spice and absolutely delicious.  I ate all of them.  The brisket was also flavorful & tender.  After Loren finished his sandwich, he had to help me with the rest of the brisket.  His sandwich was also brisket with cheese, fried onions & a horseradish mayo.  He scarfed it up.  Total bill with a drink was $23  and we’ll definitely be back.

  • Lots of BBQ


    Let me start off by saying the goal of this evening was to have leftovers.  We went over to Ozona Pig and got some Brunswick stew and the big Boss Hog special.

    The Brunswick stew has a little bit of a kick to it, but it’s oh so good.  The boss hog platter has pulled pork, brisket, ribs, & chicken.  We hardly made a dent in it.  The ribs were fall off the bone tender and the rest of it was smoky and yummy.  Total bill with a drink was $42.

    We were in Deland today and headed over to Brian’s BBQ for lunch.  There was no way Loren was passing up something called Rib Stew.

    This is the chef’s own creation and had a lot of flavor.  Rib meat, beans and a variety of veggies simmered to make a tasty stew.  Loren did the soup & sandwich combo with a pulled pork sandwich.  The port was tender and smokey.  We also got a side of fried okra. Yum!

    I went for the lunch baby back ribs with mac & cheese. The ribs were tender and flavorful and a nice portion for lunch.

    Since it was pouring down rain when we finished eating, we decided to stick around and try the apple cobbler.

    Add a little bit of ice cream and whipped cream and that’s one tasty dessert.  Definitely some of the best BBQ we’ve had recently.  If we’re ever out that way again, we’ll be sure to stop by.  Total bill with a drink was $35.

    We stopped at Jimbo’s BBQ in Tampa for lunch today.  We were in a hurry, so both got the pulled pork sandwich with different sides.

    We both liked the pork and bbq sauce.  It was tender and tasty with a nice smokey flavor.  The hush puppies were good, but none of the other sides really stood out.  The fried okra had a good crunch, the beans were a bit sweet, and the potato salad & mac & cheese were just ok.  Total bill with a drink was $20.

    We stopped at Mainely Meat for some BBQ.  We ordered a sampler and a pulled pork sandwich.

    Pulled Pork Sandwich

    The ribs were very tender with a spicy rub on top.  The chicken and pulled pork were both cooked well and the sausage was a bit on the spicy side.  The sides, baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, and cornbread, were all tasty as well. Total bill with a drink was $25.
