Ordered the daily special which was a brisket + sausage combo. The pitmaster just inside the entrance quickly pointed me down the line, where another employee grabbed a pre-wrapped daily special. Had me worried for a minute this was a fast-food restaurant in disguise. Not to worry, it was fresh and tasty.
The brisket was very tender and flavorful, but the outside rub was VERY salty. Trimming off the outer 1/16" brought my sodium level / blood pressure back down to normal. The sausage was good and not overly salty - had more spice and flavor than Kreuz Market's version. Beans are included, self-serve, and were excellent. The potato salad was very good too. The sauce was not very good at all. I rarely sauce my brisket, so not a big deal.
Not a "vintage" atmosphere like City Market or Louie Mueller's. Much more of an OSHA-approved facility, and I'm sure the NewB fire marshall sleeps better at night.
BBQ can be a very individual thing, but Cooper's in NewB is definitely worth a try to see if it's your style.
