Aruba BBQ, iPhone 6, video

I know today is Tuesday, but I needed some time to recover from the massive Sunday BBQ feast here in Aruba. It’s usually a take-out meal, but I like to enjoy it fresh from the grill.

That’s quite a plate of food. You get about 1/3 of a chicken, some ribs, fried rice, cole slaw, and corn on the cob. All for the one low price (at the time of this post) of 15 florins. Call it US$ 8.50 or so. What a deal! There are many places in Aruba that serve the Sunday BBQ feast, this one was at Great Rich Restaurant in Paradera, which is my favorite. Enjoy every meal. And eat slowly; it’s better for you.

Barbacoa, Ardmore, PA, USA

Barbacoa serves up your favorite smoked and/or roasted meats. Everything from chicken to pulled pork to brisket is on the menu, along with all the sides you love, including mac and cheese, fries, slaw, and the works. As you can see in the next photo, this is a small joint where you can BYOB.

Inside you find several tables for 2 and 4 persons. They also do take out, satisfying that need for a party or social gathering. Let’s take a look at the 1/2 pound brisket platter:

That is more than enough for two people to share, especially if you add some sides. And here is the salmon burger:

What a feed! Seriously, this was a hearty meal at a very fair price served by friendly staff. I’ll be back here often.

Jack’s B-B-Q, Nashville, USA

Well, I thought I had the best brisket platter in my life a couple of times. In Texas, in the Carolinas, even in Aruba, I’ve had some darn good brisket. And then, I arrived in Nashville and went to Jack’s on Broadway, where all the music joints are located.

Just walking in this joint, I knew it was going to be good. The delicious aroma was the first giveaway, as was the line, as were the smiles on everyone’s faces. Here’s a look at the interior:

So, I belly up to the buffet line and order a mixed meat platter as well as a brisket platter. Sides included baked beans, cole slaw, mac and cheese, et al. See the photo below:

The first bite of brisket was truly a WOW moment. Cooked low and slow with the right amount of smoke and love, that brisket topped my taste bud chart by far. The other meats, smoked sausage and ribs were darn good, too. I could see myself becoming a regular at this joint. Better renew my gym membership while I’m at it.

Hickory Kitchen, Doylestown, PA, USA

What a great little joint for excellent BBQ! Hickory Kitchen is located in the center of Doylestown, PA, USA, a great little town with plenty to offer the visitor. Of course, you know I enjoy the food most of all, and BBQ is one of my favorite things. I stopped in here after catching a movie at the County Theater, just a few blocks away. Ordered up a brisket platter with cole slaw and baked beans. Darn good! (Sorry the photo is terrible!)

That brisket was very tender and smokey, absolutely delicious. I’ll definitely be back to try the chicken, pulled pork, and various other dishes. Here’s a look at part of the menu:

As mentioned above. I will definitely be back here to try a variety of other dishes. I’ll bring the Nikon and get some better photos as well. Enjoy every meal!
