It's taken me a while, like some years, to get here. I always seem to pass through when they are closed. And very glad I am to finally make it. I'm neither from the south nor a regular BBQ eater but without a doubt this was the best I've eaten. We chose a plate of pulled pork and one of Carolina piggy (basically homemade sausage with more pulled pork). Both were really excellent, good enough to convert this BBQ skeptic into an enthusiast! The meat was tender but held together well, little to no fatty/sinewy bits and with an intense sauce. Slaw was of the vinegary kind and worked well with the BBQ, as did the wonderful, deeply flavored beans. I'll be timing my journeys through Port Gamble to coincide with opening times in the future!
