Bryan's Pit Barbecue

Bryan's Pit Barbecue
6333 West 3rd Street
Los Angeles, CA 90036
(In the LA Farmers Market)

I've been to the Farmers Market dozens of times and I think every time I've eaten at either The Gumbo Pot or Tusquellas Fish & Oyster Bar, often both. (Once I took a friend there who had just moved out from Brooklyn and I bought us a couple slices of pizza from Patsy D’Amore’s Pizza, but she took one look at the slices - disgusting looking grease bombs with soggy dough and solidified pieces of cheese - and said "No chance in hell.")

But I decided I should try this place, even though it always smells hideous when you walk by. I got the sliced pork sandwich. I was not impressed. There was quite a bit of fat on it, and I doubt the meat was truly smoked. It tasted like it had been sitting in an oven for a while. I liked the slaw, and their barbecue sauce was quite good, but not good enough to make the sandwich worth eating. I threw away almost the whole thing and went and got a shrimp cocktail and some sweet Potato chips.
