    Hazy BBQ - Danville CA

    Took my dad here the other night because he likes his ribs "fall of the bone" and doesn't like the ones I make.

    He and I both had their ribs, which were St. Louis style. My wife just had a selection of sides. I would normally have also tried the brisket and pulled pork to really judge a place, but that was deemed too expensive and I wasn't that hungry.

    The ribs were smoked and then held in a water bath before serving. They were definitely fall-off-the-bone and tasted OK but not something I would order again. Their red sauce was sweet and smoky and served on the side (actually self-served).

    The standard fries were good, but nothing special. We also had the spicy Brussels sprouts which were undercooked. The "spicy" slaw was not good at all. My wife had cheesy mashed potatoes which she said were, "OK but how bad could they screw that up?"

    The places aims to be "Texas-style" BBQ and the serving style is definitely southern style, served on metal sheet pans with pink butcher paper. The table was stainless steel. All of which served to cool down the food way too fast and was cold by the time we finished it.

    Pricing was pretty steep for what we got. $41 for two 1/3 racks of ribs and 3 sides, no drinks.

    I won't be back.

      I never heard of it, but just looked it up. Too bad it's pretty far away from me.

      Come on, mgaretz , Emeryville is only 30 miles away. Hahahahaha. You would have to do lunch to avoid traffic.

        I have not tried it. Menu looks good. I keep forgetting how much they want for a meal.
        It makes it tough to justify when mine taste damn good!

        My Daughter, who lives in San Jose says she heard they were good but pricey

      My mom lives in the same area. After she had my pulled pork, she says all of the local places are no good. She is now seeing about replicating my recipe in a Dutch oven in the oven. She is having fun with it.

        Maybe some Hazy Blur red wine with that would help dull the memory?

          I think a lot of people like BBQ for the BBQ sauce and really don't know good BBQ.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
