Every time a new BBQ place opens my reaction is "do we really need another one"? And when I start hearing a buzz about it, I think "really"? So Louie and I set out to give Eli's BBQ the test as we had done so many times when we were traveling around the U.S. together on photo shoots and would seek out local BBQ joints.
I had a heads up from the previous weekend when Mary Beth brought Eli's pulled pork to a gathering. It was of high quality with little fat and had a smoked aroma surrounding it. The sauce was both tangy and sweet. I had seconds.
