Holy Smoke Heavenly BBQ 2073 N. Emerson Ave.
Pat has been out of town and I’ve been loafing. I have stayed in doors more than usual because the weather has been lousy. Well Pat is back and the weather has slightly improved so we ventured out. Actually this post is from Friday 6/21. Since we moved our lunch to Friday that week we opted for carry out food and a visit to a brewery. I have had my eye on this joint for a while but it is carryout only. We have done a carryout joint before and went to a park to eat. Well a beer hall is better than any park I can think of
Pat was correct when he said that this joint offers tremendous value. His pulled pork sandwich was $6 and came with a side and a drink. The sandwich was huge. I would estimate it was more than 8 ounces of meat. For me I opted for a small tip lunch for $8 which came with side and a drink.
I was really pleased by my tips. I ordered them with the combo sauce which was a mix of sweet and spicy. The tips were meaty and abundant. That little go box was filled with BBQ. I ordered a side of greens but didn’t get a shot of them. The greens were very good, almost too salty but good and the liquor was excellent. I really like this little BBQ joint. The folks running it are very nice and professional. They run a tight little joint with good food and prices.
After we got our food we went to Metazoa on South College Ave. They don’t have a kitchen but they do have a food truck nearly always around. It is Old Gold BBQ and I hear it is pretty good stuff. So we may have to go back for a bite.
