Many of the food television shows have been showcasing barbecue meats and sauces these days because it’s finally summer in the United States. This gave me a craving for some smoked meats dipped in some bbq sauce because that’s the way I like it.
Recently, we dropped in at Old Carolina Barbecue Company to satisfy my bbq craving. This business has 8 locations mostly in Northeast Ohio and one near me in Akron. I ordered The Texas which consisted of ribs, brisket, two sides (I ordered the fries and hush puppies) and a corn muffin. The most impressive item I ate was their beef brisket. It was moist, tender and beefy. The ribs, unfortunately, seemed a little too dry and did not meet my expectations.
I am looking forward to Akron’s annual Rib Festival in a few weeks where I will be sampling smoked meats from as many as 10 BBQ Rib Masters all over the country.
