Award Winning BBQ???

Yesterday, me and my brother-in-law decided to try a place for BBQ that I have never tried before. They claim award winning BBQ, but they truly did not deliver. There's nothing worse than gettin' bad BBQ, especially after hearing a lot of hype. I'm not the only one to be disappointed in the area of BBQ, Darius is also a victim...yes, I said victim. When you get your hopes up to get something great, but are denied, that's being victimized. I have emailed this place to see what their explanation will be, so I'll wait to tell who it is until I get said explanation. I will say this, if I get no explanation, they will get their ass handed to them by me, yeah it was that bad.

What really sucks is that I got this "alleged" BBQ after FINALLY getting my cheap ass to see Ironman at the 2 buck theater. I must say, I never thought too much about Robert Downey Jr., but after that movie, mia culpa.

UPDATE:24 hours later and NO response yet...they have until Wednesday.

UPDATE #2: I emailed them a second time this morning as qa reminder and still no response. I may call to see if they even monitor their emails. Right now, I'm tired and exhausted, I need sleep.

FINAL UPDATE: I just got a call at 2:30 today from the manager and not the owner. I was told that the email goes to him and no one else so that's why I did not get a proper timely response. Here's how it broke down: The manager explained to me that the ribs should have been cooked to the point where they were falling off the bone and agreed with me that is was possible that the ribs were cooked on too high a temperature and pulled too soon. I was offered a gift certificate(dollar amount and details unknown for now) so I could come back and give them another shot, I accepted.

Bottom line is this, if you are the person that owns a joint like this and are going out of town and won't be able to retrieve said emails, make sure you can get someone to do the job for you so you don't leave anybody hanging. In this day and age, it's just good business. They get one more shot and if they don't hit the mark, they be mentioned here. Still deciding on whether or not to say who they are anyway.

So, did you like Ironman? I haven't seen it.

Sorry about the BBQ. Disappointing!

The 2 dollar theater...hehehe...I remember when we had a .99 theater across the street from our house. I never saw a movie unless it was at that theater! I loved the .99 theater!

Sorry about the bbq. :-(

LOL - I sooo know how you feel. Trust me! Sad, ain't it?

Ironman was a summer favorite. Loved it loved it loved it...
So was The Hulk because I have the hots for Ed Norton and the Dark Knight was the best of the three.

As far as your Barbecue fiasco is concerned...I have this to say:

Barbecue

When you meet somebody that don't like soul food
They still got a soul
And it don't mean that you got no rhythm
If you don't like rock 'n roll
But if your tastes are like mine
You like cider not wine
And your very favorite thing to do
Is get a perty girl dancin' to jug-band music
And a mess of mama's barbecue

Barbecue lifts my spirit
I swear that it never fails
And the sauce mama makes just stays there forever
If you dare to get it under your nails
Well you maybe poor with a wolf at your door
But money isn't everything
You still got your song and a river full of fun
And you'll always have a song to sing

So get the frown off your face
We're gonna replace it with a grin and a dream come true
With a perty girl dancin' to jug-band music
And a mess of mama's barbecue

Barbecue lifts my spirit
I swear that it never fails
And the sauce mama makes just stays there forever
If you dare to get it under your nails
So get the frown off your face
We're gonna replace it with a grin and a dream come true
With a perty girl dancin' to jug-band music
And a mess of mama's barbecue

That's a perty girl dancin' to jug-band music
And a mess of mama's barbe-
Mess of mama's barbe-
Mess of mama's barbecue!

A mess of mama's barbecue

We went to a very casual outdoor wedding reception this weekend. They served catered BBQ from a little local place called Deadbeat Pete's. Pretty damn good! For dessert they had a Marble Slab Creamery ice cream bar set up.

Free food rocks!

Damn! Nothing worse than a let down at the sacred pit. Go for the throat! BTW, Ironman was the schnizzle!

I'm still searching for the best bbq in the world. I'm tired of all the "claims" to be the best also! I'm convinced that my bro-in-law makes the best bbq ever! Should I snail mail u some?

Complaint Department Manager said...

If it's the best brisket, I'll get the ticket. If it falls off the bone, then send it to the home.

I KNOW good BBQ, bring it.

Bat-b-que....I can take it or leave it, especially after Fletcher's bit the dust. (Old BBQ joint on SE corner of Scenic and Sunshine, now a mobile home lot)

Me, I like a grilled steak or pork steak, with grilled onions and squash and other fruits and vegetables. MMM, mMM good.

How was the BBQ bad? Too sticky? Not sticky enough? Cold? Dry? Too Spicy?
Great, now I can't sleep.

I can tell you where to get the best BBQ in the world, but it's not commercial. My friend, Dave, who lives in Knoxville, makes the most INCREDIBLE BBQ! Geeez, he's a New Yorker, but he's been in TN for 20 plus years, and boy, he makes good BBQ. He starts early, early, early in the morning, makes his own rub....I just could go on and on about his BBQ. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

I know....let's all converge on Dave's house and force him to make us some BBQ.

Caspar608 said...

damn, I'm hungry now. damn damn damn.
you are not helping my healthy eating mission at all.

Kim said...

Yeah, I'm hungry, too! Someone get me some ribs, please?

Complaint Department Manager said...

Kim, Caspar...it's what I do.

The only thing worse then bad BBQ is bad fish.

For any number of reasons.
