Everywhere you turn in Guam, you’ll find a BBQ….Chamorro, Jamaican, Korean, or just a local firing up on his own grill.
But, if the barbecue trail guides your travel plans like it does mine, and you are in Guam in search of the most exquisite brisket, you'll head to ASU SMOKEHOUSE, and line up outside a cinderblock building in Chamorro Village along with scores of other BBQ addicts, open 6 days a week for lunch and dinner on Wednesdays. Don’t arrive late or you’ll risk encountering the dreaded sign: “Sold Out”.
I ordered the smoked brisket plate with red rice, cole slaw and homemade BBQ sauce. On closer examination of the meat, just below the "bark" (crusty exterior), you'll see a reddish pink band perhaps 1/4 inch wide -- the smoke ring. Press the meat with a fork and it will squirt fragrant beef juices and brisket fat. Take a bite and you'll taste a synesthetic symphony of beef, salt, spice and wood smoke. You can cut it with a fork and it melts in your mouth. The conversation might lag a bit, but only because this irresistible Sliced Beef Brisket deserve a moment of awed silence.
I can’t wait to try the Pork Shoulder or the Chicken.
