A well-maintained smoke pit for all to view when ordering - a third good sign! Enough of this photographic tease. Let's see some 'que!
My order of 1/2 rack of pork spareribs with baked beans, macaroni and cheese, and a corn muffin:
Jodi's order of 1/2 rack of baby back ribs, coleslaw, baked beans, and corn muffin:
The pork spare ribs were awesome. Tons of meat, nice char and smoke ring, and succulent pink pork greeted every bite of every rib, whether sauced or not (Tom Jenkins' sells its sauce in bottles. No T-shirts or baseball hats advertising Tom Jenkins' were displayed.). I chose spare ribs, instead of baby back ribs, because the spare rib cut is a meatier cut, and I was not disappointed. Jodi and I exchanged some ribs, and I can confidently state that the baby back ribs were the equal of the spareribs in the taste departement. We were there for the ribs, and we were not disappointed!
Proof of actual eating!
Did Tom Jenkins' BBQ pass the golden toothpick test? Double yes!
