Riverfront Times' Description
After winning fans at local competitions and the Wildwood farmers' market, Paul Lamers and Mark Ruck opened PM BBQ to showcase their Memphis-style barbecue. The half-chicken, with a mildly pepper dry rub and wonderfully tender meat, lives up to its hype, and the brisket might be the best in town. Pork lovers can choose between pulled pork and baby-back ribs. The latter feature an aggressively peppery dry rub. Sides are excellent (especially the sweet-corn spoon bread); and four different sauces (spicy, sweet, Carolina, mustard) are available.
Tips from foursquare
One of our favorite new restaurants of 2010
The baby back ribs hit just the right spot on both texture and smoky flavor. And the dry rub remained after cooking as a very thin crust, providing just a touch of sweetness.
Their brisket is smoked for twelve hours- it is so tender that the restaurant isn't afraid to slice it a bit on the thick side.
Peppery smoked delicious is the moist CHICKEN! Hungry?- check them out at the Iron Fork http://microapp.riverfronttimes.com/ironfork/2013/
SO much better than the chain restaurants in the Valley.
