Update on Crazy Jake's BQ truck in Walnutport, PA
Fortuitously, I was down that way around lunch time yesterday....
On regular occasions the truck sits in the corner of a Mobil station parking lot off of Rt 145, across from a strip mall. There was a line about 10 people deep at 12:20, which continued until I left at around 12:45. People everywhere are interested in authentic BBQ!
It might be the bargain of, I don't know, forever? Pulled pork, $10 a quart, packed so tightly It comes out like a sandcastle. I bought two quarts, a bottle of sauce and a dozen Kaiser rolls and fed myself and 9 co-workers until we were well sated. With about one serving left over. When one gets outstanding food at a low price, one is blessed.
The sauce is pretty good, with lots of black and red pepper.
I also got a couple racks of ribs that the family gnawed on for dinner last night. The ribs were pretty good, but not as good as the pulled pork. They're the big racks, including tips and skirt. I'd guess they were using applewood that day. One rack is too much for 3 people; there's leftovers tonight! The ribs keep some of the meatiness, they aren't cooked to mush, and the actual tenderizing is more from the smoke than it is from the heat, I believe. The ribs are "good Q", not "great Q".
