Last Week in BBQ, Part II: Uncle Pete's Hickory Ribs, Revere, MA

When Seth gmailed that he had found a few barbecue joints in Revere--an urban "blue collar suburb" and Coney Island/Gravesend analogue that I happen to love--I knew we had to get out there.

Last Saturday, he and I ventured to Mass Hwy 60, Squire Road. On a two-block stretch of this sprawlofare, one can find both The Big Lou (no website) and Uncle Pete's Hickory Ribs. The latter's website announced unexpected entrees of the Thai kind, so we decide to explore this weirdness.

This photoset on Flickr explains the outcome.

Worth checking out are the amazingly well-smoked beef ribs and the surprisingly different, Asianized Buffalo tenders.

Seth and I will be planning a trip to the Big Lou and perhaps a follow-up trip to Uncle Pete's soon.

Bobby! I like this... Do the men in Revere still wear those baggy MC Hammer-like pants in NFL team colors? Or was that so turn-of-the-millenium? I guess if you still drive a TransAm anything goes. Next trip to Revere, you should go midnight candlepin bowling on the Lynnway post BBQ, I highly recommend it.

That place is in Lynn, and they made it look a lot less shitty. I can't wait to get in shape and bike through all the sprawl this summer.
