Terry Black’s Barbecue

Photograph by Daniel Vaughn

It’s a good sign when the lean brisket is still juicy in the middle of the afternoon. The juiciness was evident on the cutting block where my order was deconstructed from hulking chunk of jet black brisket. As promised, they cook with all wood here (to the ire of some neighbors) and it comes through in the finished product. So does a good dose of black pepper and salt, and more salt. Other than the slices of juicy, well-seasoned turkey breast, all of the meats suffered from too heavy a hand with the salt shaker.

    Love me some TBlack BBQ. Make sure you get an end piece for some great bark. The meats are all delicious and the sides are amazing and the desserts are great!
