Happy holiday weekend to all of the dads and father figures out there! The weather in Pittsburgh looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL with temps in the high 80s and blue skies for the ideal weekend to BBQ and grill!
Good luck to the local teams heading to West Virginia for the Almost Heaven BBQ Bash! I’m willing to bet having the bash at the historic Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum wins for most unique venue and you can’t beat that entertainment lineup. If you attend it make sure you share with us on Facebook.
Spork Pit is almost ready!
Good Food Pittsburgh reports SporkPit is close to opening in the Garfield neighborhood!
“Very quickly, these tender, smokey meats were met with praise. The hallmark of the Spork Pit project is the restaurant’s authentic smoke pit, which was made in Houston and driven to Pittsburgh.”
I was at their preview party (video) last summer and if they can tone-in that Central TX BBQ spirit again yinz are in for a real treat. The brisket was some of the best I’ve had in the area.
