Give Worship to Barbecue

And on the 8th Day, God created BBQ and decreed from that day forward that BBQ shall be served on Fridays and Saturdays in the Prayer Assembly Church of God in Christ. All kidding aside, if you ever want good food, always check out your local churches for their offerings. you’ll never know what they might be offering. case in point is the Assembly of God which serves Cue 2 days a week as a fundraiser.

The thought did occur to me that they might be Prop 8 supporters, but I’m putting together list of all the BBQ places I have visited in LA County and I can’t let politics get in the away of alerting Yelpers where the best Cue may be found out.

I really like the setup the church has. they have a catering truck where you place the orders and pick up the food, but they do have industrial size smokers outside in the parking lot where they smoke and cook the meat. Seating is limited. There’s a section that seats 4 people, but otherwise you have to grab one of the several free standing chairs they offer to patrons. Its not ideal for a large group, but it was fine for the 7 or 8 Yelpers that were participating in a BBQ Crawl that Tony put together that day.

We ordered the pork ribs with the sauces on the side. The mild sauce already had a spicy kick to it. The spicy one – if you like flaming hot Cheetos, then you’ll like the spice level. I don’t like scorching hot sauces, so I preferred the mild sauce. The taste of the sauce was okay. Not too sweet, but the texture was a bit more watery than I liked. I liked my BBQ sauce to be Heinz thick.

The quality of the meat itself was disappointing. It was fatty and a bit jerky like in terms of chewiness. If I had to rate the BBQ as a stand alone, I would give it 2 stars. But there are 2 side dishes that help redeem the place: collard greens and corn bread.

The collard greens are not overcooked and have a good, deep flavor to them. It was moist, not too bitter and you can taste the ham hock flavor.

But the Amazing Grace side dish had to be the corn bread. It doesn’t get better than this. It was not overly sweet and was the perfect balance of moistness and a slight toasty/gritty feel in terms of texture.

This place is fine if you happen in the area, but unless you are craving collard greens and corn bread, worship the BBQ at Nate’s or Bludso’s instead.

There is ample street parking available.

BBQ Pork ribs

The pork ribs were a little on the fatty and chewy side. The 2 sauces – mild and spicy were good. The spicy sauce definitely has a kick to it.

Collard greens

Not overcooked. It was moist with just the right texture. It had a good flavor to it as well. One of the better collard greens I have eaten in LA County. After Bludso’s, this place has the 2nd best collard greens.

Corn bread

Possibly their best dish. One the best corn bread I have had in LA County. It was moist, just the right amount of crunchiness and grittiness. It had a deep corn, almost masa like, flavor. Not overly sweet either. Perfect.
