"Have I eaten at any local spots ? " HECK YEAH ! I have been here a year now ( moved back to the States from Mexico ) and I have found the local BBQ here is fantastic ! Buzz & Ned's , Benny's , and the one I just tried I was VERY happy with was The Halligan Bar ... I was impressed !
Now if ya have any suggestions PLEASE tell me !
I'll be smokin a couple a briskets this week -end for a Wedding ( ya can follow my Q-View under Brisket help (please) ) So if ya smell SUM-TIN Good in Da Richmond area ....That would be ME !
nice on the brisket, I'll be on the lookout for the Q-View. Hopefully in the next month or so I'll be trynig a brisket too.!
Man are you ready for your life to change? I tried Buzz & Neds and thought it was ok. People in Richmond RAVE about how good it is. Its ok... You want a life altering BBQ experience? drive on over to the southside on walmart-way off of midlothian turnpike and check out Q BBQ. Man they do it right. The owner was on the pitmasters tv show, his name is Tuffy. He's there from time to time and people are always talking to him and asking about the wood and the smokers. Anyways, all that stuff aside i've never had better ribs, and everything else including the sides are really something to write home about. Not sure what part of the richmond area you live in but I hear they are expanding to the West end soon too.
I saw him there a few times, I dont get all excited over someone who has been on tv though. I respect his knowledge and adore his food lol. He's got all the trophies and ribbons and stuff in there. people go in and look at them and talk to him. best chance to see him I'm guessing is on a weekend. Staff is nice and friendly though and the food is always amazing. Check it out, its bound to become a favorite. I've sent countless people over there and they all come running back to me screaming about how amazing the food is. One lady is even getting them to cater her thanksgiving!
OK I will check out " Q " some time , I know exactly where it is , been by it never stopped . that's only about a 15 min ride from me .
Ya can check out the Q-View on the link " Brisket Help (PLEASE) I just continued it on from advise given, and did a Q-View .
Like I said, Buzz and Neds , Samies , where just OK, I did LOVE the Ribs , So Heck YEAH if ya say there good ...I'm all about um !
I'm heading back to Mexico, and on to Belize for a few weeks , and a stop off in New Jersey to see the new Grandson ....so When I get back some time in December ....Some GOOD " Q " will Do ! I thinks it'll be Q Fo SHOE ! I'll give ya a REVIEW !
