Is Rub authentic?
(Chiaki Kawajiri/Sun Photographer)
I'm hoping that someone who knows more about Texas barbecue than I thought I did will be able to discuss this with John. Any thoughts?
Just read your review of Rub on Light Street "Something's smoking at Rub".
As a dislocated Texan I look forward to trying this place out. However...
one quick comment. You wrote:
But the barbecue is authentic enough, with dry rubs, an oak wood smoker and long hours of slow cooking.
For the record... authentic is not OAK smoked. There is only one true Texas smoke flavor and that is mesquite. If there are beans in the chili and the wood isn't mesquite smoked... well... it just isn't Texan.
Thanks for the review... have a great week.
