Today, I tried the pulled pork sandwich at Jerome Brown's BBQ in Springfield, and I was pleasantly surprised. When I got my sandwich, I was a little hesitant because the meat was already sauced. I generally do not like when places do this. It immediately made me think of AJ's on Park Street (which serves a terrible BBQ sauce sandwich which for some reason they call a pulled pork sandwich). But, the sandwich at JB's was excellent. It had a great balance of meat and sauce. The pork was smoky, but not overpowering, and it was really well seasoned. The hot BBQ sauce was also a very good spicy mustard-based sauce If you like pulled pork, I definitely recommend it.
For me, it does not beat the gold standard for pulled pork set by Mojo's, but I'll definitely hit up JB's when I'm looking for a change of pace.
I'm also looking forward to trying the ribs and wings at JB's. I saw one guy's plate of ribs, and it looked really good.
