Hi SF Hounds:
Just wanted to thank you for your superb recs for Oakland BBQ. We ended up feeding 7 with Everett and Jones baby backs, brisket, chicken, and links and let me just say, Amen! Went to the University/San Pablo branch and loved the tender meat and smoky, sweet, and spicy sauce on everything.
Also wanted to mention our tremendous lunch at the Slanted Door at the Ferry Bldg. What an amazing space, impeccable service, and full-bodied flavors. Yum - We'll be back next time.
