Holy Smoke! Good BBQ

Adam Erace finds good barbecue at Holy Smoke in Roxborough. Just read his description of the chicken and waffles.

The classic Harlem-born duo takes time, Taylor says. A full 12 minutes to get the breast, thighs and drums fried perfectly. A 24-hour brine kept the meat so moist, a ShamWow couldn’t sop up all its juices, while the thorough dredging in well-seasoned flour gave each piece its crackly, golden coating. The meat arrived over a fluffy Belgian, its pockets like reservoirs for the deadly good mix of soft butter, hot sauce, maple syrup and chicken drippings.
