Guam Diner Bytes: Big Boi's BBQ
If you didn’t know, Big Boi’s BBQ is definitely open for business – from 1 1a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day. They have a wide range of offerings, with some rather bodacious names or titles. The Barnyard Pimp is their marinated chicken, The Fancy Pig is there chopped pork that’s been smoked for 10 hours, their Big Sexy Ribs have been rubbed with founder Curt’s special blend of spices, smoked for four hours, and slathered in your choice of several savory barbecue sauces.
One I particularly became very fond of was their O No U Didn’t sauce, which has Caribbean heat from Jerk spices and a fruity sweetness from Mango. Some of the sandwiches are The Big Butt (chopped pork) for $8.99, which is the same price for their Killer Chicken sandwich. Big Boi’s Backyard Brisket Love is $10.49.
I was able to sample some of their offerings when I ordered the Big Boi’s Feast, where you can mix and match your favorite meats and add some sides. I got two sides with half-slab ribs for $21.79. My sides included Uncle D’s Sinful Mac (three kinds of cheese), Down and Dirty Rice, Deep South Wedding Rings. With this order I had the chicken, Backyard Brisket, and then I ordered the Smokehouse (sliced smoked pork with one side for $11.99). For that side I believe I had the Cole Slaw. The meats had all been smoked and you can tell that they are pretty serious about their business. This is American-style barbecue and the whole restaurant is kind of an American celebration, with lots of beer on tap and TV monitors making it a genuine sports bar.
The food I ate was fairly decent considering they had just opened. They were still training staff and getting all of their routines down and tasks organized. I’m looking forward to my next foray into Big Boi’s BBQ offerings. In the meantime, you go on down there and see what’s awaiting you!
