This is my first time on this site, recommended by a fellow hound who swears by it...I've enjoyed myself and have stayed up way too late!
I just have to share a casual, out-of-the-way find, Smokin' Dudes on State Road in Croyden (near Bensalem). I stumbled upon it with friends a few years ago and we have become devotees. The Dudes is owned and operated by Bill, a sweet young guy who started doing bbq competitions with his father while in college. They still enter (and win) competitions. The place is full of trophies. They do eat-in, take out, and lots of catering. Fabulous ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and many other things, all delicious. Incredible hush puppies. Bill is fond of deep frying desserts, and has talked me into trying things I never thought I'd eat--deep fried oreos and bread pudding. Yum. This place is way out of our way, and we go there about once a month or so to satisfy the cravings. My husband and I have eaten bbq all over the country, and we love this place. Hope some of you will give it a try and provide feedback.
