10/10/13 12:10pm - Another Southern Pride shocker. Anuther bruther doin it right. Really good BBQ for a gasser. Strip center BBQ joint = gasser BBQ
I scored Fainmous a 84 out of 100. Reserve Grand Champion Texas BBQ
Smoke: Hickory. The gasser is in plain site. Why hide it.
Brisket: Good. If it had a smoke ring it would have been rated Very Good. No smoke ring. Nada. Nothin'. Thin bark. Snap apart tender no knife needed and very moist. Fat rendered well and full of smoke. Good smoke flavor in every bite. No sauce needed. Cant believe its a gasser.
Ribs: Very Good. Spare ribs with the tips served separate (I love that). Near cake soft perfect tender with clean bone. A rub was noticeable. Good smoke flavor. No sauce needed.
Sausage: Excellent. A course ground semi loose packed pork sausage with bold traditional spice and great herb flavors. A log lasting after taste. Casing a little tough. No sauce needed.
Sauce: Very Good. Nothing here needs sauce so do not forget to use it. A fresh tangy tomato vinegar based sauce with citrus, onion and a subtle cinnamon flavors. Worked will with meats and gave every bite a flavor boost.
PS: Portions were insane. Leftovers made two lunches!
