BBQ Hounds: Check out Burnt to a Crisp Truck. Need your expert opinion.

ns1 | Mar 27, 201401:41 PM

I've been hitting up this BBQ joint for the past couple of weeks because, well, they're awesome.

They advertise themselves as "TX style" bbq - lots of brisket, some pulled pork & sausage. I've had the CCF twice now (once with chopped brisket) and the brisket sandwich and man is that brisket tasty.

The CCF ($8, +$2 for chopped brisket) is fucking HUGE. First time I tried to attack it myself, it looked like I barely touched it. I went again and tried to attack it with the wifey, and it STILL looked like we barely touched it. Bigger (and better, imo) than Hat's PCCF, and I loooooove Hat's PCCF. Maybe it's the jalapenos.

The brisket sandwich itself ($10) was also glorious; never had a brisket sandwich this way before (onions/pickles), reminded me of a legit McRib. By buying the sandwhich I was really able to sample the meat - very well seasoned w/o being too salty, with incredible smoke flavor.

As I am not a BBQ expert, I cannot compare this to the other heavy hitters (BM, Bludsos, Horse Thief). I will say however that it is the best brisket I've had in SoCal, based on my admittedly small sample.

I am posting this so that maybe one of you more knowledgeable hounds might try it out and report back. Super nice dudes as well.
