new BBQ spot in middletown called A&L BBQ

So I check my mail and find a flyer about a new spot. I check online and see that it is a pizza place which is kind of odd.

It is located on the corner of 35 and new monmouth rd (across from Applebees)

I find out they use cherrywood and I got 2 of the 3 meat platters (one for the wife and I.) It is smoked on the premises.

I opted for the pulled pork, ribs (st louis cut) and brisket. The two sides I chose were mac and cheese and cole slaw. For 16.95 this was a decent meal. Opinions on BBQ are all over the place. You ask ten people and you get ten different opinions. So I won't write a huge review but lets just say this.... I'd give the brisket a try. I think it is nicely done...not dry or drenched in sauce. It has a heavy black pepper forward rub and some decent fat. Overall it wasn't epic but it gave me my bbq fix since its hard to smoke in this snow.
