Smokey Goodness at J and B Barbecue
J&B Barbecue-RATED 4 stars TXmb
Barbecue is embedded in the DNA of all Texans. Knowing what ribs and brisket are by the age of 1 is a necessity. It’s a rite of passage to watch flames dance on an open grill, while sweet smelling smoke tickle your eyes and tempt your belly. For this reason, our smoke cured senses can easily detect the good stuff. Thankfully, J&B does NOT disappoint.
The menu isn’t extensive, but who cares. This is barbeque. Each of J&B’s meats has an unmistakably savory smoked flavor that leaves you smacking your lips in satisfaction and licking extra sauce on your fingers. The ribs have an air of familiarity that happens when you’re invited to that uncle’s house who can “throw down on the pit.” It’s the invitation you never turn down, no matter how far the drive or how bad the kids.
At J&B’s sauce is abundant, so if you prefer your meat dry, make that request up front. But if you can, go for the sauce. It’s deep brown in color, and you can taste the dark brown sugar and other titillating spices. Its especially great on the sausage.
Sides here are tasty, but again the spotlight is all about the meat… and the potato. For anyone who is a literal meat and spud head, then you might want to try the Monster Baked Potato. This massive tator is loaded with an endless heap of cheese, sour cream, and your desired smoked meat(s) of choice. Oh and bacon does not count as a smoked meat, that just comes with. TXMB
