Bigmista’s Barbecue Visit – Sherman Oaks, CA

Got a chance to head over to see my friend Neil Strawder of Bigmista’s Barbecue on Tuesday at the Sherman Oaks Farmers Market. I got the Bigmista Plate along with a few additional items.

Hot link and Brisket

Pork Rib and pulled pork

His food was spot on as usual. Loved the pulled pork and brisket. The pulled chicken was definitely a unique way to serve it and had a nice, somewhat spicy (yet used lightly to coat) sauce that added to the richness of the flavor. Note that his hot link is really on the spicy side so be sure to have a cold beverage handy. The only sides I tried (not photographed though) were the slaw and beans. The slaw is mellow with hints of pineapple and the beans have a husky flavor with a backbone of molasses. I realized, on my drive away, that I had forgotten to get BBQ sauce, but after about five bites of the meat I knew that his BBQ doesn’t require sauce at all.

You can visit him every Tuesday from 3PM to 8PM in Sherman Oaks here:
