Default A trip to Jack McDavid's Firehouse in Philly

BackyardChef (Matt), his lovely wife Amy and my beautiful daughter Laura took a trip out to Jack McDavid's Firehouse in Philly a while back. I finally downloaded the pics. Enjoy!

I'm guessing it's just for show, but I'll give him a bonus point for having a Pitts & Spitts out back...

Was the food as good as the pics appear ? I had a pulled pork sandwich from his concession stand at the Bristol, PA contest in May... not bad....a typical pulled pork sandwich....

Actuallly the food was pretty un-impressive. It was OK, but I expected a whole lot better from the legendary Jack McDavid.

Take a good look at that rib. Dried out to the point of burnt. The brisket was really tough. The pulled pork was good, but noting jumped out as outstanding Q. If this was from a no-name place, it would have been OK, but here it was very disappointing.

I'll second that. My wife took me to his place for my birthday a while back. I had pheasant that was beyond dry. The rest of the meal was OK, but pretty pricey for what it was. I also had a platter from his concession stand at Bristol. Almost 15 bucks for some barely average (I mean restaraunt average) bbq and 2 crappy sides. I can't say I was happy with either experience. I'm sure he can and does do better but unfortunately it didn't happen when I was around.
