Pitt Cue Co.

Pitt Cue Co. Review

Everyone's gone bonkers for the super-smokey and cheap-as-chips Midwest American BBQ-ed ribs and pulled pork-in-a-bun meal combos here. A tiny, no-reservations hipster hangout, Pitt Cue has only 18 basement seats, plus a few pavement berths and eight counter stools in the ground-level bourbon-and-rye crush bar—little wonder queues often snake down the street. Many order the £9.50 to £12.50 finger-lickin' spreads, which come replete with authentic slaw and house pickles (and are even served up in regulation-white enamel and blue-rimmed Shawshank Redemption baker-wear dishes). Charred rib-tips, sausages, baked beans, and bone marrow mash sides are other temptation, but the devout devour the sliders and sticky ribs (with their mucky paws). The secret to Pitt Cue's famous barbequed pork and beef ribs? A stonkin' coal-and-woodchip smoker, 28-day free-range cuts from North Devon, and dry rubs and marinades which include smoked paprika, Sriracha chili sauce, blackstrap molasses, and apricot preserve.
