Mable’s Smokehouse

My buddy and I came here for a quick bite before sampling some beers at the Brooklyn brewery.

I sparked up a platter of brisket, pulled pork, mac and cheese and pickled beets. This came to about $27.

The pulled pork was definitely the winning meat between the two.

The brisket was a bit dry.

Actually, both meats were slightly dry, but they were also both packed with flavor. You can always put some BBQ sauce on this shit to beat back the dryness, or some of the jalapeño vinegar that is on each table in the restaurant:

The mac and cheese is tossed in a nice creamy and tangy cheese sauce, but it lacks crunch or texture. No breadcrumbs or anything toasted on top. Bummer.

The pickled beets had an interesting clove flavor to them, very seasonal Thanksgiving. They were good, nice texture.

I even messed around and made this carb-free pulled pork and pickle sandwich with a brisket bun.

More like a slider, I guess. My buddy put down a proper pulled pork sandwich and a side of mac:

Over all I’d say this place was slightly better than I expected, which was not awesome but definitely hit the spot. I’d put it on par with Dinosaur BBQ, though it has fewer menu selections. It is NOT on the same level as Hometown or nearby Fette Sau.
