I saw via Melissa Libby’s facebook profile that P. Red’s BBQ on Chattahoochee Blvd opened this week. I had wondered about this bright red building with boarded up windows, sporting a pig and more recently, an airplane on the roof. I’m always excited about the prospect of good BBQ near my house. The pork at newly opened Billy Jack’s BBQ and Shrimp on Collier Rd was fairly disappointing, though I did like their shrimp po’boy well enough.
If you like newly made vintage signs and the songs such as Take this Job and Shove It, this scene is right up your alley.
Good crowd for lunch.
I only tried the pulled pork on jalapeno cheese bread. The bread was a little soggy in parts, but it was good overall, sort of a slightly spicy brioche. The pork is more shredded than pulled, but it was flavorful and not dry in the least. It could have used a few pieces of bark and maybe a little more fat to liven things up, but no major complaints.
I had the pulled pork sandwich below at Farm Boy’s BBQ in Chapin, SC, featuring South Carolina yellow mustard sauce. While I did scarf it down while driving up I-26 from Columbia to Greenville yesterday, by comparison the Pappy’s was much better – smokier, more moist, and better sauce.
Looks like Pappy’s could be promising.
