It's Ribs!

7/22/13 12:14pm - Well if your name is "It's ribs!" you might want to serve some tender tasty pork ribs or change your name.  I went a while back on recommendation of the beef ribs, which I would recommend.  The menu selection had the Holy Trinity, so I mad it a point to come back.

I scored It's Ribs a 70 out of 100.  This is Bum Steer BBQ but in fairness they don't market their BBQ prowess.

Smoke:  A secret, but I would guess Hickory.  There is a well used smoke stack in the back but not a stick of wood in sight.  There is no reference to wood used in their menus.  Little evidence of wood fired, so I suspect a gasser.

Brisket:  Good.  No smoke ring except on the ends.  Tough of tender, a knife was needed.  Good smoke and salty rub.  Use the sauce.

Ribs:  Poor.  If you like over cooked and charred ribs, this is the place!  The have successfully recreated your drunk uncle's backyard disaster.  A St Louis cur spared rib dry of tender.  A sticky charry black bark with a hint of burnt.  Overcooked brown through and through.  Use the sauce or just order the beef rib.

Sausage:  Good.  A fine ground pork sausage with great bacon and salt pork flavors.  A little greasy and some faint smoke.  No sauce needed.

Sauce:  Good.  A tangy strong molasses tomato vinegar based sauce.  Overall flavor was good but it overpowered the meats.

PS: Try the beef ribs.
