Downtown Update: Picnick Smoked is Working on Daily Specials
Downtown Lunch’er Chris checked in this week with an update on Will Goldfarb’s new BBQ truck, (which Daniel wrote about a few weeks back).
Swung by Will Goldfarb’s Picnick Smoked BBQ cart on Monday, and saw a makeshift sign for daily specials. Check ‘em out: Monday, Pulled Chicken – $7. Tuesday, Ribs. Wednesday, Prime Rib. Thursday, BBQ Salmon. Friday, Smoked Sausage.
I talked a little with Kevin Pomplun and he said they’d just started this week. They’re still very much in the process of figuring out how it’s going to work, but said that the specials would be priced between $7 (for the chicken and sausage, for example) and to $15 (for the prime rib, or a half rack of smoked spare ribs). He hasn’t even sourced the sausage yet, but is looking to do it with Heritage pork and may even be making the sausage himself. He said he was doing his best to keep it as local and affordable as possible, while still keeping it damn tasty.
He’d actually taken down the menu on Tuesday, and ended up pushing the ribs to Wednesday this week (he wasn’t happy with the way Tuesday’s batch looked). Clearly, the sign I saw yesterday was temporary and they’re just taking this idea for a test run. If it’s still going well in a few weeks, he’ll make a permanent sign. Just thought I’d give Downtown Lunch’ers the heads up.
