Badbobs BBQ

Badbobs BBQ is a fairly new restaurant in the area. It is a franchise of Bobby Grooms, who has had some impressive showings at the BBQ Championship in Memphis in May, and other state competitions. Their specialty is whole hog, but they also make some very good pork shoulder and brisket. This is Memphis style BBQ. It is dry rubbed and smoked. You then have the option of having it sauced when you order, or you can always add your own.

The Beef Brisket is fall apart tender, and is very juicy. Although it does have a somewhat smoky taste, there is no hint of a smoke ring. I have a feeling that the meat is smoked then “rests” in its own juices until ready to serve. That serves two purposes: It keeps the brisket very moist, almost to the point where it almost “too juicy”; and it helps to add some extra added flavor. The brisket is so tender that it almost melts in your mouth. The BBQ sauce is not overly sweet and has a little tang to it. It could use some more heat for my taste, but is one of the better sauces I’ve had.

The BBQ at Badbobs is pretty good, and I’d like to explore their menu a little bit more since they specialize in pork, and I’ve yet to have the pork shoulder or baby back ribs.

I thought this place was pretty good. The brisket was really tender, but it being sliced so thin didn't really give it a "meaty" taste.

Yes, it was pretty good, but it seemed to be "doctored" too much by stewing in its own juices instead of standing on its own right out of a smoker.
