First visit to Blackstrap BBQ, now open in Winthrop

GaryLovesFood | Oct 29, 201004:20 AM     2

Several East Coast Grill and All Star Sandwich alums opened a barbecue joint in Winthrop that opened on Tuesday. I visited Wednesday and could smell the smoke a few doors away. Service is over the counter, behind which a Southern Pride smoker is in full view. I ordered a good percentage of the menu and liked mostly everything, but the standouts were the full cut pork spare ribs and the smoked sausage, which were both juicy and slightly smoky. Chicken, brisket and burnt ends were also promising, just a little oversauced. Pork was unsauced and the only disappointing item foodwise. Servicewise, there were a few disappointments, but I hope those kinks should be worked out.
