Bourbon and Bones BBQ

GreenYoshi | May 26, 201412:01 AM     10

So I checked out this relatively new BBQ spot today. Haven't seen a viewpoint on here on Chowhound, so here we go. All-around, I was very impressed. I'd definitely put it in at least my top 5 for Seattle area BBQ, maybe higher.

The pitmaster's a Carolina guy, so the pork is definitely very good. There's a bottled mustard BBQ sauce available that works very with it, as well as a unique traditional BBQ saucem(that I preferred for the brisket).

The ribs were also good. A little on the sweet side (which is my personal preference, but some may be looking for something different.), but not excessively so.

This is also the only place I know of in the Seattle area that does an Alabama-style White BBQ sauce for their chicken, which immediately earns some points from me.

As always with BBQ, I caution that your results may vary. The hardest thing about BBQ (especially in this region, where temp and humidity vary so wildly) is consistency, and I may have hit it on a "good" night at the right time when things were properly off the smoker. But simply knowing they can deliver at this level, puts them in an echelon above many others in the area for me.

Also, in that vein, I was impressed that when I asked what was good today, I was offered a legitimate recommendation (I feel like rarely happens here, but is common in Texas and other BBQ communities), and in the end, I was very happy that I heeded the advice.

I'll definitely hit up this Fremont-Ballard spot more often to see what else they can do, and if they can keep the consistency, but definitely impressed in my first impression.
