Long Shot BBQ review image

Long Shot BBQ


This Gray’s Ferry casual order-at-the-door operation has people lining up in everything from a sweltering summer day to a mini monsoon. All their meats are smoked in-house–including their tender brisket that’s hand-trimmed and cooked low-and-slow, jalapeño cheddar sausage, and pulled pork that they cook for 12 hours. You can order any meat by the pound, put it on a kaiser roll or wrap for a sandwich, or get a combination platter that includes a juicy cut or two with a side of slaw, potato salad, mac and cheese, and cornbread. Add an order of apple bread pudding and you’ll have the ideal hearty meal that’s perfect for a casual weeknight, game night with friends, or work-from-home lunch that will give you meat sweats through your next Zoom meeting.
