Luckily, I was able to find some absolutely finger-lickin' good BBQ in a very unlikely place: HoneyBaked Ham! Who knew?! Actually, HoneyBaked BBQ is currently going through a trial-run of sorts, and I happen to live in one of the few areas where it's currently available. (HoneyBaked BBQ availability can be found HERE. Please note: It's only offered in OH and KY at the moment.)
We headed over to the Chapel Hill HoneyBaked Ham in nearby Akron to pick up some HoneyBaked BBQ for ourselves. It was my birthday, and we were heading up to see my Grandma. Of course like many grandparents, she tends to over-do it when it comes to cooking. She loves to feed people! This is wonderful, of course, but she just had surgery and I didn't want her to feel the need to go all-out. I told her to sit back and relax, since I was coming with BBQ in hand.
The ladies who were working that Sunday morning were absolutely wonderful. They were friendly, attentive, and answered all of my questions about the new BBQ line-up. They even offered us some free samples of pulled pork, pulled chicken and brisket so we could try them before we decided on what to order.
Now let me tell you, these sandwiches were absolutely phenomenal. The pulled chicken was juicy and moist, and the addition of the Pork Barrel Mustard BBQ Sauce gave it a nice kick. The Habanero Jack cheese also gave a nice element of heat, but the cole slaw cooled the flames quite nicely. Overall, this sandwich is the perfect balance of sweet, tangy, and spicy. It's literally a party in Flavortown in your mouth.
This, just like the pulled chicken, is amazing on its own or in a sandwich. One great sandwich idea is a nice pile of brisket, topped with cheddar cheese, onion straws, and a horseradish aioli or the Pork Barrel Sweet BBQ Sauce...Or both!
If you're lucky enough to be in one of the BBQ test markets, definitely head on over to check it out. You can purchase main dishes and sides by the pound like we did, or you can stop in for a delicious pulled pork sandwich and some sides for lunch.
