*I was provided with a free meal from Bam Bam’s BBQ. All opinions are 100% my own.<
A couple of weeks ago Nate and I were able to go to Bam Bam’s BBQ for dinner after work. I loved the atmosphere of Bam Bam’s BBQ. It’s a casual restaurant, with wooden tables, a chalkboard for their menu, along with one for customers to draw/write on, a map of the USA to pin where you are from, photos from Bam Bam’s contests and more. Also, the food is served to you on a tray lined with parchment paper.
We were provided with a sampler platter so that we could try each of their delicious smoked meats. We also got to try out their coleslaw and potato salad.
Their meats were seriously all delicious. They had a great smoked flavor that wasn’t too strong but was just the perfect amount. All of the meat was so soft and tender too.
The ribs just fell right off the bone, and were so so soft and tender and delicious. I think they may have been my favorite. Though, really its hard to choose just one favorite, they were all so good.
The brisket was juicy and smoky and good. Brisket is always a little fatty and this one was no exception, but that’s what keeps it so moist.
The turkey was really good too! Nate has smoked a couple of turkeys and now smoked turkey is one of my favorite meats. I don’t think its great with bbq sauce, but this meat was great on its own and I think it would taste great with gravy too.
The pulled pork was perfect. I have loved pulled pork since I worked at Legend’s Grille a few years ago. The pork was good on its own, but I really liked it with the sweet BBQ sauce on top as well.
The chopped beef, oh the chopped beef. If the ribs weren’t my favorite then the chopped beef was. Cameron told us that the chopped beef is made from the dry flaky parts of the brisket edges and then chopped up and soaked in a sauce to re-hydrate it. It was salty and moist and delicious. I think this was Nate’s favorite meat.
At Bam Bam’s BBQ they have two homemade BBQ sauces for you to try out. A sweet sauce and a tangy sauce. On its own I wasn’t really a fan of the tangy because it was very vinegary, Nate thought it tasted like a North Carolina BBQ sauce. But on its own the sweet sauce was great. I love sweet barbecue sauces and this one was good too. Also, Cameron suggested we try combining the two and that made a really great sweet and tangy flavor.
For the sides, we got to try their potato salad and their coleslaw. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t a fan of the potato salad. It had a really strong vinegar and mustard flavor, and the texture was like mashed potatoes with a few chunks. I’m a fan of traditional, plain potato salad and I probably wouldn’t order this one again. However, their coleslaw was really good. It was a good slightly sweet coleslaw, not vinegary at all. It was nice to eat a little meat and then a little coleslaw to refresh my palette. I would definitely get the coleslaw again.
Overall, our experience at Bam Bam’s was great! The food is already cooked so you don’t have to wait too long for them to put together a delicious plate for you. The flavor of all of the meats were amazing and they were cooked to perfection. The coleslaw was good, the potato salad was okay, and I will definitely try the baked beans next time we go. And there will definitely be a next time. The food, atmosphere and customer service were great! When we are in the mood for barbecue or lots of meat this is definitely the place we will go!
