The meats are all smoked in a large, steel smoker in the back, and they have a great, smoky flavor. They are also very tender and moist – not dried out at all. The ribs are smoked in a pit behind the building. They are baby back ribs, so they are small. As always, I got mine dry, so they came without sauce. Baby back ribs are my favorite type of ribs, so I always have high expectations. I think the best baby back ribs I’ve had are from Joe’s Kansas City in Kansas City. These were not as good as that, but they were delicious. The meat was tender, and the flavor was great. The only problem I had was that the meat was a little chewy. Maybe these were just a little overcooked. Still, this was a great meal.

The caramelized onions and cheese on this sandwich were the perfect crunchy, creamy topping to the tender, juicy pork. Pit Boss smoked the pork for about 3 hours over hickory wood in a smoker for this sandwich, and the result was a succulent sandwich that melted in my mouth. The pulled pork is served in a soft, toasted, sweet bun.
