The Brick Pit Restaurant Review

: Drive down Old Shell Road and the whiff of smoke will tell you there’s serious barbecue ahead. Pulled pork, ribs and chicken are all that’s needed to draw diners to The Brick Pit. Owner Bill Armbrecht and his staff refuse to rush the smoking process. So Boston butts (for pulled pork) stay in the smoker with a mix of pecan and hickory wood up to 30 hours and ribs up to 12 hours. Even the chicken is smoked for six-eight hours. Befitting a proper old-fashioned barbecue joint, The Brick Pit offers a simple menu that includes sides of coleslaw, barbecue beans and potato salad. Mrs. Iona Waits’ banana pudding is made fresh every day.
