Re: A Crappy Review, or a Crappy Reviewer?
We in New England, so they say, prefer brisket without a heavy layer of fat. I just cut off the fat if I think that there is too much. I've had sauce on the sides in other parts of the country too. Yesterday, we ate at Smoke Stack (Green Street, Worcester, Mass). They, too, serve a fairly lean brisket, with store made sauces on the side. They smoke for 12 to 14 hours at the side of the restaurant building. Being right next to Table Talk pies, the largest pie baker in the country, it makes for some interesting smells.
As an aside, the building was one of 2 Green Street locations that once housed the former Sir Morgan's Cove. The Cove was small, never famous, and had only a local following, but for one glorious night, The Rolling Stones was the house band. I don't remember which of the 2 buildings the Stones played in. I wasn't there.
