Big 6 Bar B Que


1/22/14 11:45am - I was eager to discover some great Food Trailer 'que based on some high rated hipster reviews, but found that Big 6 is more like a Medium 3.

I scored Big 6 B Que a 79 out 100.  This is Regional Texas BBQ.

Smoke:  Pecan. There is supposedly wood fired pit inside the trailer.  I was refused to snap a picture of the pit from the inside.  There are 2 smoke stacks protruding from the top and a fire box that is loaded from the outside.  A container of pecan next to the trailer. All you can see from the widow is a frame and wood door like a closet.  There is not a lot of room for a wood fired pit but I'll take their word for it.

Brisket:  Fair.  An 1/5in purple smoke ring and paper thin bark.  Tested Dry of Tender and was close to being overcooked.  Descent smoke flavor but not much else.  Use the sauce.

Ribs:  Good. Once again slightly overcooked and on the dry side of tender.  Overall flavor was salty pork and smokey pecan.  It had a rub but the seasoning was long gone.  Use the sauce.

Sausage: Excellent.  I have had several samples of what I presume is East Texas style spicy sausage and I love it every time.  A course ground pork sausage with bold traditional spice and hint of cayenne pepper for a little heat.  No sauce needed at all.

Sauce:  Excellent.  A Kansas City style dark sweet thick sauce.  It was sweet, tangy and smokey.  Molasses and brown sugar flavors.  So good you could spoon it for dessert.  A good thing because this place needs a great sauce.
