Maywald’s Sisterdale Smokehouse

This meat has deep smoke, and perfect meaty texture. The silky soft fat had sucked up any remaining smoke that the brisket missed for an otherworldly flavor. The rub was ingredient laden, but salt and sugar are high on the list, keeping the surface from gumming up. Tender but meaty ribs had the same rub flavor, but with more punch (maybe from MSG). Either way, it was a stellar combo.

We can say without hyperbole or any self-doubt that this was the finest smoked chicken thigh we have ever consumed. This thigh had a perfectly paper-thin crispy skin that came away cleanly with every bite through the lusciously moist and tender meat. Smoked chicken is not something we’re used to gushing about, but this was poultry nirvana.

    You must have been there a day other than the 2 times I visited. Their brisket was dry and not the least bit of competition quality. Yes, the sausage is embarrassing. I want my money back. The beef ribs were sub-grade. I had 2 sausage links and 2 ribs and one coke for $18.00. Not even fair if the food was good.You can pass this one up for a year or so until they get their act together.
