Baker's Ribs

I stopped by there today for a nosh to take back to the office. It's Rosh Hashanah today, and since everyone I know and work with are Jewish, lunch was a solitary affair.

I picked up a little brisket and a few ribs, (in honor of all of my Jewish friends), and wandered on back to work.

The ribs were good as usual. Peppery and with a little bite to them, they are among my faves.

The brisket? Not so much.

I will truthfully say that this was the worst brisket I've ever seen and I'm pretty old.

A uniform gray, no smoke ring, no bark, no flavor and the guy with knife even cut it WITH the grain, so what I wound up with was stringy and spectacularly unappealing.

Now I have had good brisket here before. I know they know HOW to do it. And I also know that this wasn't it.

To Bruce & Co: C'mon guys - I've recommended you on this very board before but this just wasn't acceptable under any circumstances.

Please up your game, or go back to Dallas, (where they wouldn't know the difference).
