Curly's Carolina Brick and Mortar in Round Rock

Not to ignore a 2012 "pulled pork" thread where Jay's trailer was mentioned, but I think he and his partner deserve a non-buried report now that they've set up shop as of Nov. 14th downtown in round rock. Jay hails from NC where they know pork like Texas knows beef, and his pulled pork and pork ribs that we had yesterday were smokey, moist, and tender. Better pulled pork than anywhere else in Texas that I've tried - and the vinegar sauce is right on, if not too light on the red pepper flakes. A few drops of Texas Pete fixed that. The standout surprise was the homemade fried okra. Best I've ever had - really nicely seasoned and light breading. Great space - execution will improve as they continue to fix the kinks (like whipping up some tea, getting a soda fountain, and ice). Didn't try the brisket, but it looked great.
