In Search of BBQ
We did find a clean, busy BBQ joint in Anaheim called Blake's Place. It's in a small industrial area, right next to their BBQ bottling plant. When we got there, there were about 5 Harleys parked outside the door. A good sign.
The menu is extensive- I guess there's a lot of different combos of meat. There's brisket, beef ribs, pork spareribs, babyback ribs, chicken, pulled pork... It comes with coleslaw (meh) and a dark, gooey, smokey molasses beans. I took the pulled pork sandwich. At first bite, it tasted like a kalua pig sandwich, but the sauce was nice and tangy with smokey undertones.
When Ken grows up, I think he needs to learn how to smoke meat.
