So I have been enjoying egg food for a while. All the local BBQ chains..im sick of. They don't taste as great as what I can get from the egg. We have Texas Roadhouse, Piggy's BBQ, Up in Smoke,Sonny's BBQ, Jim and Milts BBQ. All of them taste so-so..processed actually. It taste processed.
So today I thought I would try a BBQ food truck. I saw the smoke a blazing from Bass pro shop and it smelled so good..so after I bought some stuff from bass pro shop..i went over there. I placed my order for 1/2 rack rib and 1/4lb pulled pork with mac and cheese, potato salad, and a sweet tea. While they were getting my order ready..i went over to their pit to look at the temperature. It was blazing away at the high temp of 125 degrees. Ok..so then I realized that there not actually cooking anything..rather using the smoke as a form of advertising. Fair enough.
Got my food..smelled amazing..and then I bit into the rib. What did I taste? Delicious smoke and Pig meat? Nope. I tasted lighter fluid with a side of dry ribs(probably reheated..cant blame them to much) I ate one..threw the rest out. Now onto the pulled pork. I was a little leary as the pulled pork was a dark brown. It looked like they had smothered it in bbq sauce. Took a bite...and it was smothered in some of the sweetest sauce ive ever tasted..inedible it was so sweet. If I had diabeties I would of given myself a insulin shot right then and there. In fact maybe I still should.
So I have decided that the egg has made me a BBQ snob and what I used to like..just doesn't work for me anymore.
