Smokin' D's BBQ

Smokin' D's BBQ

A word to the wise for BBQ novices or those who frequent some franchise joints: it takes 6 to 15 hours to make authentic fresh smoked BBQ. That means you either get up REAL early to start your smokin’ or you reheat and serve yesterday’s meat.

Smokin’ D’s prefers to get up real early. Or in the case of brisket, they begin the smoking process the night before.

Each day begins by consulting the ghosts of BBQ Kings of the past, an old voodoo witch in the swamp, and a ouija board to assist Smokin’ D’s in guessing just how much meat its fine customers will consume this glorious day. After which, Smokin’ D’s rubs its butts (the shoulder, silly) and all the other meats one more time with their special spices, cross their fingers, stoke the smoker, and load it up.

They REALLY hate to waste good meat so you may occasionally find that some hungry soul has beaten you to the last rib or pound of meat in the place. If this happens, Smokin’ D’s sincerely apologizes and suggests you either go hunt ’em down, arrive earlier the next time, or better yet, call ahead. ‘

Cause they just won’t sell yesterday’s meat!
