8 Splats -

Lexington, KY

If you ever get to Lexington, Kentucky, you owe it to yourself to give Butt Rubb a try. This little mom and pop shop has some great Que - and the owners, Gregg and Leigh Pence, will make you feel like a you've finally come home! I ordered the sample plate and dropped my website name to the waiter. Within minutes Gregg and Leigh were out at the table talking up a storm - sharing thoughts on sauces, smokers, and meat like I was the prodigal son come to join the family business. It's nice to see people who are so passionate about what they do, especially when they do it so well! By the time I left that table I had tried just about everything on the menu - and was pleased by it all!
The sampler plate included ribs (nice an meaty, perfectly done, you can tell these babies were smoked in an all wood smoker,) brisket (moist, smokey, with that glisten that says perfection,) and a pig wing (pork shank - an under rated cut of meat.) For sides I had the sweet potato fried and baked beans. Only two sauces, but they were great - hot or sweet, take your pick.
RIBS - 8 Splats
Nicely smoked, had a nice fire-ring. The kicker (as Greg says) is that he uses a true wood smoker - no gas or electricity is used to create these babies!

BRISKET - 8 Splats
Great brisket!. It had a good fire ring, was moist, and had a nice smokey taste.

BEANS - 8 Splats
Lots of meaty pieces and just a touch of jalapeno.

SAUCES -5 Splats
Two kinds of sauce - hot or sweet. Not a lot of choices but they were both good (and really this meat stands on its own!)

If you're in the area you owe it to yourself to drop on by - tell Gregg and Leigh hi for me.
