Grub Station: Baby Blues BBQ

24 Jul

memphis style bbq is traditionally smoked pork served in one of two forms: ribs on a slab or pulled.  restaurants in the south typically have smokers that make some kick ass smoked meats. however, in SF its hard to find a restaurant that is able to accommodate a smoker. enter baby blues bbq. they have a smoker that really makes some flavorful meats. baby blues uses dry rubs for all their meats and then put them in the smoker. typically, the meat should be so tender that it falls off the bone but baby blues didn’t hold up to that standard but everything was still moist and soft. ordered the three kings – pork ribs, chicken and brisket. entrees cames with 2 huge sides – we opted for the mac-n-cheese and creamed spinach. added a side order of collard greens and grilled shrimps with a paprika mayo sauce.  my favorite was the chicken, the smoker really lends well to making some moist chicken. favorite side dish was mac-n-cheese. good quality cheese and macaroni was cooked perfectly. no blues in my belly, only the sound of bliss….BURRRPPPPP
