#88 Electric Mud BBQ

Electric Mud BBQ

Son of Grand Electric is a rockin’ out barbecue hut, an ode to bourbon and rock, to smoke and fat. And being the scion of Grand Electric chef/co-owner Colin Tooke, it’s great. Do not skip the Clydesdale (bourbon with grapefruit, agave and lime). Or the crack rolls (well named) — warm dinner rolls with butter that sat under the smoker and got smoky sweet. Also eat the slightly smoky ribs topped with BBQ peanuts and just enough hot sweet Thai sauce. And the crazy crisp fried chicken. And the pink moist duck ham (a.k.a. smoked duck breast). And the collard greens, classic southern Americana with pork rind and peeled cherry tomatoes. And the fab custardy banana cream pie. That’s the good news. Bad news: No reservations, huge lineup by 6 p.m., picnic table seating, music too loud to talk, cash only.
