The level of barbecue produced in this dive off-the-beaten path near San Diego makes an hours-long road trip worthwhile. To say it is mouth-watering describes only part of the story. It is eye-watering, and tongue-watering, ear-watering...what have you. All of the senses get involved here....More

I'm partial to authentic Texas BBQ. Unfortunately you're going to have to to Texas for that. These guys try but fall short. The quality of the product is good. The problem is the smoke time. The brisket and ribs need to be smoked twice as...More

I am from North Carolina. Nuff said on my knowledge and experience with how pork should be cooked and taste. Coops is excellent! Chopped que has wood smoke flavor and sides on collards and beans makes me homesick for NC. Just go and try it!
