Smokey Joe’s Barbecue in Shanksville

At Smokey Joe’s in Central City, Somerset County PA, the cooking is slow and methodical.

I actually just left the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA and found this beauty straight off the road.

Ordered a mix of brisket (moist and lean) and halushki. The trailer serves  fatty and lean brisket and pulled pork. Brisket was moist and literally melted in my mouth. Most tender and moist chunks of meat I’ve ever eaten in quite a while.  Spice rub wasn’t too peppery, a good compliment to the meat. Halushki was so tasty, just like from grandma.  Really delicious and chock-full of flavor – like dynamite.
