With so many options to choose from, we decided to go with the easy way out and went with the “Pitmaster’s Pick 3”, which contained all the different goodies we wanted to sample.
We started off with the Texas Style Brisket of course, and boy was it absolutely delicious. The gorgeous beefy flavour was forward and well accompanied by a lovely smokey sensation. The meat was tender without being overly fatty, yet easily falling apart with the push of a fork. The shallots and house sauce definitely added a
Another highlight of the evening was the Pork Spare Ribs. The gigantic ribs were generously coated in a beautifully sweet and smokey BBQ sauce. Underneath, the pork was just so succulent and juicy, effortlessly separating from the bone with a forward porky flavour. The twice cooking ensured a crisp outer that sealed in the juices, it’s crunch enhanced by the peanut crumbs within.
We also enjoyed the Applewood Chicken Chops. The chicken were incredibly tasty and appetising thanks to the juniper salt rub and basted with a flavoursome sauce. The slight crispness of the outer skin enclosed a meaty, well-seasoned inner that was cooked to perfection.
The Pit Braised Pulled Lamb also deserves a special mention. The fragrant and aromatic protein was enhanced thanks to the simple rosemary rub. The slightly fatty blend with the lean protein resulted in amazing flavours and some of the juiciest pulled lamb we have come across.
Another must-try is their Crispy Pork Belly. The stunning root beer sauce perfectly accompanied the beautiful layers of fat and lean pork that simply melted away in your mouth. The soft textures were beautifully juxtaposed by the amazing crackle sitting on top, offering a spectacular crunch!
Rounding off our meaty feast, our sides included the BBQ Street Corn that was beautifully sweet and juicy, as well as the Creole Coleslaw that was perhaps a tad richer than expected. The Deep Fried Mac and Cheese though, is a must!
Bluestone BBQ offers an impeccable, authentic Southern American BBQ experience. From their more than generous portions that will satisfy any craving, to the smoking and marinades of each of their meats, this is the real deal!
With their slow-cooking skills down pat and two giant smokers standing front and centre of the store, Bluestone BBQ is a no-brainer for meat lovers like ourselves.
