Went to the rib fest at Coxwell & Lakeshore today. Pretty dismal turnout despite very light rain (no umbrella needed). I was in a hurry so went for the nearest place, which was Camp 31. I have had Camp 31 twice before, and found them satisying but unimpressive in the past.
- fatty, very salty ribs that to my tast were undercooked
- pulled pork sandwich that seemed to not have been very slow-cooked - noticable absence of mature flavour
- both of the above had a distinct lack of sauce - there was really not much going on in the flavour dept. at all, which for ribs and pulled pork is really missing the mark - these are not subtle foods
I ate less than half my ribs, and I am not known to leave even half-decent ribs uneaten. So, the overall impression was not good, and I guess I am at the end of the road with Camp 31. They get a lot of good mentions on this board, so I would love to hear from anyone else who had them this weekend, and can offer another vantage point..
