LA BBQ Festival

Santa Monica, CA
May 9, 2009

Gus' BBQ - South Pasadena, CA

Memphis Baby Back Ribs, Carolina Pulled Pork and Baked Beans

Baby back ribs = fall of the bone meat, although quality was hard to determine as ribs were eaten with one hand puncturing with fork while standing. Beans = beany and pulled pork = "meh".

Baby Blues BBQ - Venice, CA
Memphis Baby Back Ribs with Mac and Cheese

Their ribs were far superior. Apparently, "Memphis" style means a dry rub (heh) smothered in tangy barbecue sauce. Mac and cheese = f me now. I saw them pour a bucket of milky liquid over pasta and bake it while smothering it with cheese. Pour that milky liquid over me baby, anyday.
