Brisket and Ribs done Right: Joe-Bawb’s BBQ
For generations, the art of cooking and cutting brisket and ribs have been ruined by big chain BBQ fast-food restaurants. But Joe-Bawb sticks to the classic Louisiana Cut Brisket, with delicious burnt ends and some tasty Mac-N-Cheese, Joe-Bawn seals the deal for great BBQ.
Located on 7921 Northside Dr, Oklahoma City, OK 73132, Joe-Bawb has a fabulous history of cooking Brisket, Ribs, Potato Salad, and Mac-N-Cheese. The name, according to G-Que Barbeque comes from his wife’s first name JoAnne, and the “Bawb” comes from a sort of joke of when they’d eat out the table would be for Bob; he decided to put a twist on it by spelling “Bawb.”
What I ordered:
¼ lb. Brisket
Price Point: $$
The Mac-N-Cheese was great! It was not too spicy with the Bacon bits on top and didn’t solidify, which I like personally because I’ll eat a little bit of everything and want to come back to the Mac; this made it easier to try each dish that, excellent Mac-N-Cheese. *Full desktop here*
Now I understand this Potato-Salad was homemade, so kudos to the chef who made this; it was sweet; I could still taste the potato, and a bit spicy on top, which is always a plus for eating Potato Salad with BBQ; very delicious.
The Ribs were a different story, excellently smoked with no meet falling off, meaning moisture was abundant in these ribs. My Boss stated, “You must try the ribs alone; that is the ultimate test to good tasting ribs. If the taste can stand on its own, that means their good”. I admit this did make me think of what good-tasting ribs mean to a new food/IT blog myself, I took my boss’s advice, and yes, I can concur these ribs did stand on their own without some of Joe-Bawb’s home-made sauce, which I’ll get into later.
The brisket was awesome, they didn’t fall apart, and the top of the ribs was just the right amount of smoke to give it that exquisite taste. But I must state that I did need the sauce to make them better. But still great brisket overall!
Joe-Bawb has three sauces that he gives his customers, Dawg, Original, and Mango Habanero.
Original: Better than store-bought any day, I would love to buy some for home consumption.
Dawg: Very spicy! But I am a spicy guy, so no complaints here; it made the food even better!
Mango-Habanero: with a kick of spicy and sweetness, Mango Habanero changes the flavors of anything you try at Joe-Bawb’s.
