Smoked Joint no joke

Adrienne | Apr 3, 2005 02:37 PM

Last night at 8, Joypirate and I began what can only be described as a delicious journey through meat. We went to the smoked joint and shared two delicious dishes:

Pulled Pork Pickled Pizza - $12. It's a surprising combination, with the cool pickles and the warm pork and a cheese that held things together, though I wasn't aware of much cheesey flavor. Very tasty (even cold for breakfast this morning).

But this was not (for me) the highlight of the meal. The other dish we ordered was the BBQ Experience - $27 - which was true to its name, and came with barbequed chicken (a thigh/drumstick), brisket (3 slices), ribs (3), a mound of pulled pork, and the sides we chose with it were sweet potato fries and root beer baked beans. All was delicious. I think I was most impressed by the brisket, which I don't think I've had BBQ style before... although the ribs were really delicious too, maybe my favorite... and the chicken actually was wonderful and smokey... and even the beans were amazing... basically it was all fantastic. And it was quite a bit of food.

For dessert we split a cookie plate with one very delicious chocolate chip cookie, a very soft ginger snap and a less exciting banana whoopee pie, plus two scoops of vanilla ice cream with syrup.

My biggest complaint would be that they did not provide us with extra BBQ sauce -- had we actually complained about this, we would have learned before finishing that someone had just forgotten to put a bottle of sauce on our table. I think the pulled pork would have been better drowned in the sauce they had merely drizzled over it.

Also, for those of you who consider beer to be an important part of a meal (it was probably 60% of our meal, despite the amount we ordered), be forewarned: they only serve Yeungling, Allagash, Brooklyn Brown and Flying Fish. All are $5. Unfortunately, by 9 they were out of Allagash and Flying Fish! Who has ever heard of a bar running out of beer by 9 on a Saturday night?

Despite those deficiencies in things liquid, things meat were all fabulous. I would definitely recommend this place.
