Going to see one of my daughters in the Tampa area friday. Knowing how much I like Q she checked around and was told to try this place in Brandon. It' supposedly a Mom$POP place so I'll let you know what I think(for what it's worth) It's on hwy 60 in Brandon if anybodys been there
Not sure what that one is, but if you a chance try Big John's Alabama Q. It is on 40th street just north of Hillsboro Ave. This a hole in the wall that makes decent Q. I am pretty sure that is the location, but it has been 8 years since I have gone there. My friends say it has not changed.
Just got back from Brandon visiting my daughter. We went to Ist Choice for lunch and was impressed. My SO & daughter had pork sammies, the meat was chopped and so much on the bun it would've made two sammies. I had a combo platter of ribs and chopped brisket. All the meat had a nice smokey flavor and very tender and tasty. The sides were collards(real good), fries(fresh cut not frozen) slaw(soso), and pasta salad(had a nice kick to it).. Out back they had a huge pile of oak that a local tree service keeps supplied for them. Over all I will be back again real soon, and visit my baughter while I'm there,especially if she buys PS The sign says it all--Follow the smoke
