If there is not smoke pouring from the building, it ain't Q and ain't roadfood!
I agree,,,,,almost. Yesterday I had a very nice pulled pork sandwich at Major League Roast Beef in Auburn , Mass. IMO, MLB is Roadfood, but they are a sandwich shop that happens to have some good Q. Maybe they buy it?? There is no smoke pouring from a shed out back. $7.49 for a good sized, very fresh onion roll, with a good portion of pulled pork (no sides) is on the expensive side of cheap roadfood, but everything there is about $1 extra. Maybe that is why they can keep the quality in. www.majorleagueroastbeef.com
There are a lot of baseball posters on the wall, but the picture of Ted Williams has him in a jet fighter during the Korean War. Even today, less than 4000 pilots in world history have qualified to land a jet on a carrier at night. There must have been only hundreds in his day. He was a great baseball player, AND a Marine fighter pilot. They don't make them like him anymore. MLB is right down the street from Ronnies, the central Mass fried clam Mecca.
Today I stopped at Burger King, which nobody would call Roadfood. Certainly no BBQ smoke, and no pitmaster. The $4.99 special pulled pork sandwich, with fries and a drink, was on the smallish side...............nothing like the picture, but surprisingly good. The pulled pork, which is obviously shipped in, had good flavor, mouth feel, and a nice tang. Were it served out of a smoking roadside trailer, I'd have been satisfied, and I doubt that a roadside guy could do it for $4.99
