Righteous Urban BBQ, also known as RUB, is a BBQ joint in Chelsea that Chris really likes (he gets their food once in while at work). I was in the mood for some good BBQ, especially after my disappointing trip to Daisy May’s, so we headed to RUB to check out their pulled pork and other offerings. The night we went, they ran out of their “burnt ends,” which sounded like a whole lot of fat, so instead, we ordered the Baron, which is a whole lot of meat:

The Baron is enough to feed a small country – it includes beef, pork, ham, pastrami, turkey, chicken, sausage and topped with a quarter rack of ribs. It also comes with two sides – we ordered baked beans and the potato salad.

Whew…what a plate-o-meat! The pulled pork was my favorite – the flavor was a little tangy and the meat had a great flavor, the complete opposite of Daisy May’s attempt to pull off pulled pork. The pork was moist, tender, and had just the right amount of zip. The brisket was a little tough and dry and the turkey, bleh, it was gross. I mean, what’s the point, anyway?

The side dishes were really tasty – the potato salad used a little pickle juice mixed with the mayo and the baked beans weren’t too sweet (I usually hate baked beans because they’re too mushy and sweet). Overall, it was pretty good BBQ!

The Baron is a great deal if you round up a group of people in the mood for a meat-filled feast. RUB BBQ is great and I’d definitely go back…after fasting for a week to maximize my eating potential.

If pulled pork is your favorite, make it a point to gather like 8 friends some day and order the whole pork butt (Down Home Pig Pick’n) – call a day in advance if you want to make sure they’ll have it. It’s a life experience. The burnt end dinner is my 2nd favorite thing on the menu.
