To those who have never tried to create great BBQ it must seem like a simple task of cooking meat and then adding sauce. The best BBQ comes right off the smoker and is eaten while still hot. The best BBQ Restaurants usually have a large following and are constantly taking meat from the smoker and serving fresh, hot, and moist. The majority of the others have the difficult task of cooking the meat and holding it til ordered, sometimes hours and sometime days. The longer it is held, the drier it becomes. The dilemma, how to reheat the meat and make it taste fresh. I read the unbelievable reviews for the Hickory Pit BBQ in Chattanooga and decided that that many great reviews couldn't be wrong. I made the 1&1/2 hours trip from Georgia to try it out. I want to be fair to the restaurant and not trash it because I know how hard it is to do BBQ right. I honestly still can't rate the BBQ because it was drowned in sauce and apparently microwaved to reheat it for serving to me. If I had known this was the technique they used, I would have requested the sauce on the side so I could at least have enjoyed the meat. I had planned on buying a pound of chopped pork and bring back home for later. I still ordered the take out but requested the sauce on the side. In fairness, the meat minus so much sauce had a good taste. I was able to heat it slowly in the oven til warm and then add just a little sauce. The next time I go to the Hickory Pit, I will order the pork plate with the sauce on the side and give them a second chance.
