Let's get Sauced baby!
A few days after Christmas, Allen and me met up with our friends Mike, Erick, Jeni and their beautiful kids for dinner at Sauced BBQ & Spirits. We had to wait a bit for a table but it was a Friday night and worth the wait. As we entered, I took a good look around and liked the decor. I read on the website the wood and corrugated ceiling is reclaimed and shipped in from barns in Georgia and North Carolina giving it a nifty southern charm. The space is huge, the decor warm and inviting, and the vibe southern BBQ Sauced style. The atmosphere is lively, packed and loud, with live music in the main room by the bar area, with a lot of dining table space as well. You can also watch cooks prepare BBQ smoked meats of all kinds through the glass.

Here piggy piggy! 
We dined in a partially outdoor area that was heated from above to keep us warm. It was still a little chilly even with the heat since it was very cold outside, but we had a great time. For our starter, we shared the Rednexican Nachos with tri-color tortilla chips, pulled pork stacked high with poblano queso, black beans, smoked corn, fresh jalapeƱo and a cilantro garnish drizzled lightly with Tin Roof BBQ sauce. This was sinfully good and plenty was leftover by the time our food arrived. I was full already.

All our friends seemed to enjoy what they ordered and the kids too though they had more leftovers than anyone else. I even swiped some french fries from them. I ordered a Southern BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with Smokey Baked Beans. The pork was fork tender, juicy and full of smoked flavor. I topped the pork with extra Pig Candy BBQ Sauce, ate all my baked beans and loved the smokiness and sweet taste.

Allen was very happy with his meal and this is a good choice for any die hard carnivore. The menu states the meats are 100% fresh, seasoned and cured with the house rub and smoked low and slow over hickory and applewood. Allen ordered the 2 Meat Combo and chose ribs and sausage with 2 sides, Sweet Honey Cornbread and Mac & Cheese. The smoked sausage was a nice mix of meats and smoked well. The ribs were tender, juicy and seasoned well. Allen complimented the ribs with Hot Tin Roof BBQ sauce to bring up the pepper heat and extra kick of bold flavor. The cornbread was a favorite with whole corn kernels and a hint of sweetness from the honey. I begged for a little bite and loved it. Allen thought the mac & cheese had the right texture, was creamy and super cheesy.
