What are yinz eatin? Pork & Beans
I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Pork & Beans and this past week when I stopped to check out the lunch menu it was on the love side. The image above is their brisket sammy and burnt ends beans. Brisket, whole grain mustard, green tomato salsa verde, pickled fennel, cherry peppers, dill, half sours. Service was FAST and the meal was top notch.
BBQ Central Show features local steak champ
First Angel from team Comin’ In Hot wins the $1000 prize at Chillin’ & Grillin’ on E-Street and the following week she’s featured on the really big BBQ show… The BBQ Central Show. Angel’s professionalism and dedication to her craft left a great impression on BBQ fans that still had them talking this week. This is the future of live fire cooking.
