Barnes BBQ – Lemon Grove, California

There’s a great little piece by Corky Lang from the LemonGrove Patch on a BBQ Joint called Barnes BBQ in Lemon Grove, California. A joint Corky defines as ‘Memphis-meets-Texas’.

The photos show BBQ this is really smothered in sauce, but Corky explains in the article, “The big plate held three large pork ribs, along with a mound of very lean beef brisket and an equal amount of pulled pork. All were liberally doused with the house sauce: spicy sweet with a little kick. I know sauce is a personal matter, but for me this was perfect. The southern style wood-smoked pork ribs, thinly sliced brisket, and succulent fall-apart pulled pork shoulder were all delicious. The homemade beans and slaw matched up well to the meats.”

It actually sounds like an interesting joint and as I have a San Diego BBQ trip scheduled for the next couple of months due to the larger number of joints cropping up south of Orange County, California, I know that this will be on my list (so a personal review will shortly follow). As an aside, I went to college at San Diego State University and for us (my friends and I), at the time, Lemon Grove was the only place to hit up an In-N-Out Burger within 100 miles, so it’s nice to see Lemon Grove is now on the map for being a meat eaters oasis and not just a long drive for a Double Double).

You can read the entire piece here. If you’ve been please let me know what you think.
