BBQ smoker at Picazo in Sonoma

Malcolm Ruthven | Dec 19, 201409:39 AM    

As I drove down Arnold Drive in Sonoma yesterday, I saw a sign saying "Backyard BBQ" and then saw the smoker behind the sign, so I stopped. It was Picazo Cafe & Deli. I walked over to the smoker and saw split wood logs and a chimney for starting a fire. Very promising. I went in (you order at the counter and they bring you the food) and there seemed to be no BBQ on the lunch menu, so I asked about that and was shown the dinner menu. It listed baby back ribs, chicken, and a pulled pork sandwich (maybe more, but no brisket). I chose the pulled pork sandwich ($9). First, I have to say I forgot to specify sauce on the side, but that might not have been possible, don't really know. I'm sorry to say that sandwich was one of the worst food items I've ever had. The real problem was the miniscule amount of meat covered in a gloppy sweet sauce. I finally uncovered some meat out from under the on-top cole slaw and there was no way I could taste what it was because of all the gloppy sauce.

This seems to be a popular place, and I have to think their food in general isn't like that sandwich. Maybe other BBQ items are good, but they sure ruined what might have been good BBQ with the very small portion and huge amount of gloppy sauce.
