Buck Island BBQ / Bayou BBQ
I recently visit the Buck Island BBQ on route 53. I was impressed with the pulled behind Nc cooker. (I prefer an off set smoker) I walked in on a lovely Dec day. I was eager . I was met by the owner. He was very proud and spent time explaining how he prepared his food. I was a little surprise it took over 14 hour to cooked pork butts. I was anxious to try his bbq.He was very passionate. Passion is a very important ingredient. He also told me he made his own sauce. I notice that the food was out in the open with no sneeze guard .
The Judges Review. The main criticism was way too much sauce. Sauce is not the boss with good bbq that pig died for a reason. If you can not taste the pork why eat it. Also the pork is way over cooked. Length of cooking time does not produce great bbq. I know of championship teamsthat win with 5 hour pork butts.
I do wish them luck and believe they have a great idea. If they decrease the cooking time and sauce they could have a winner. I say serve the sauce on the side along with other choices. Good Luck!
Score: taste 3, tenderness , 2 appearance 4.
But I could be wrong and they could make millions!
I truly liked the atmosphere.
