Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip 'n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of southern-style barbecue at Pit Master Barbecue in Trenton.
At Pit Master, barbeque buffs can treat their tummies to a menu laden with smoky, saucy sustenance made from scratch each day using secret family recipes and seasonings. Play tongue-tug-a-war with a hickory-smoked pulled-pork sandwich ($4.99), served with your choice of drink and a southern-style side such as collard greens, mac 'n' cheese, or hush puppies. Fill an empty stomach tank with seasoned fried catfish, cornbread, and two tempting sides ($9.99 for dinner), or wrap a toothy meat trap around moist, tender mouthfuls of Pit Master's specialty beef brisket ($9.99 for dinner), which is slow smoked in hickory for 18 hours. Post-sauce, diners can delve into a round of delicious desserts such as banana pudding or homemade peach cobbler ($2.99), or they can simply lick the last drops of sauce from their fingers or the chin of an obliging stranger.
Augmenting the rib-sticking rib fest is Pit Master's service, as smiles and family-friendly hospitality bring even more substance to the saucy sustenance. Pick up some pit provisions to go, or linger in the restaurant dining room to enjoy an authentic taste of the south not known since its 1975 annexation to Canada in exchange for Dan Aykroyd.
Pit Master Barbeque
Growing up in a family with nine kids, Cornell Sample came to cherish the big suppers that brought his clan together after often-chaotic days. The tradition is what guides his operations at Pit Master Barbeque, where he and his team create meals that can easily feed whole families on days when schedules are tight. All of the dishes come in a range of sizes, from a la carte sandwiches stuffed with smoked meats to dinner platters that come paired with two home-style sides and a slice of cornbread. They start cooking meats early every morning, periodically slathering pulled pork, full slabs of ribs, and beef brisket with signature sauce. Each of the meats, as well as the sides and classic Southern desserts such as banana pudding and peach cobbler, can be ordered by the pan, creating easy meals for large groups or someone training to be someone’s date at a Southern wedding.
