I only know one person who’d be willing to trade the coziness of a Saturday afternoon for a BBQ snack hunt: J.
And the man did not disappoint.
Before we knew it, the two of us were staring (salivating) at Blackstrap BBQ’s wall menu; brisket sandwich for him, chili cheese fries for me ($8).
To say that these “snacks” were good would be an understatement. The chili was literally poutine AND the most divine beef-and-pulled-pork smashed together in a kitchen-grade steel container.
FYI, this is not a side; this is a meal.
As for the brisket ($10, beans $2), it was tender, juicy and thickly sliced. Big appetites should consider getting two or going for one of the BSBBQ super plates (half chicken? Nahh. Full chicken!).
Earlier this summer, I thought le Boucan had swept me off my feet. BSBBQ just raised the bar a touch higher. No doubt we’ll be back for the ultimate “LE GROS” ($39), an overflowing rack of everything the joint has to offer.
