You have to know a new bbq joint peeks my interest when the owner and pitmaster, Nancy Krohngold, remarks, “There aren’t too many white Jewish women making pork barbecue.” Nancy’s Bar-B-Q in Sarasota, Florida just opened this month and already they have a huge following of bbq lovers who visit more than once a week.
From their facebook page, “Only Nancy prepares pork shoulder (“Boston Butt”) with her secret recipe 14-ingredient dry rub, cooks it in a Bar-B-Q oven “low and slow” for over 12 hours and then delivers it, ready to savor! Her dry rub turns into a rich, dark, crisp coating (“bark”), the signature of authentic North Carolina pulled pork Bar-B-Q,that tastes sweet and spicy, with just enough oak smoke. The fragrant pork is succulent and fork-tender, with incredible depth of flavor.”
“Over the past six years she’s perfected her secret dry rub recipe and pitmaster skills to create authentic North Carolina style Pulled Pork Bar-B-Q that wins raves from food critics and good ol’ boy barbecue lovers alike. Creative Loafing named Nancy’s Bar-B-Q their Best of The Suncoast 2008 Critics’ Pick for “’Best Roadside Dining,” and Best of The Suncoast 2009 Critics’ Pick for “Best Underground Restaurant.”
She is partners in this new venture with The Caragiulo brothers who have six restaurants, most notably the recently opened Owen’s Fish Camp. Have you been to Nancy’s Bar-B-Q yet? I’m dying to try it on my next bbq trip out to Florida.
