Snapper Soup, Texas Weiners, and Cheesesteaks: Things I Ate in Philadelphia This Weekend
My great good luck in chasing down eats in Baltimore a few weeks a go led me and a pal to make a brazen assault on Philadelphia this weekend.
Oink Johnson's BBQ
I started out taking the wrong road, Highway 78 to Easton, Pennsylvania, then decided to take local roads going down the Delaware River to reach the great metropolis. Outside of the improbably named Plumsteadville in Bucks County, we stumbled on a decent roadside barbecue called Oink Johnson's, which stood in front of the stone barn of Jack's Dog Farm. The brisket was entirely agreeable, shredded like pulled pork and moistened with a sauce I didn't object to. The pork ribs had been good once, but were now dry and flint-like, though the smoky flavor was still there.
