Buccaneer Bay BBQ in Plainfield N.J.

B.B. has opened in a space formerly occupied by a soft-serve ice cream stand. It's been under construction for close to a year and my hopes were VERY high that we would have a BBQ joint other than Famous Daves. Well, all hope was dashed when I went in there for lunch today for a pulled pork sandwich. What a disappointment. It was mushy without a large enough piece to give it any texture other than mush. There was some sort of sauce on it, not sweet, not vinegar, just a pale pinkish moisture. There was also some granulated white bits in the mush that almost looked like parmesan that had been granulated in a food processor. Then there was the odd taste. It's been a couple of hours and I don't have a stomach ache so I'm sure it wasn't spoiled, it just wasn't any good. As I sai, I'm very disappointed.
