BBQ Update

Grub Street gets some precious nuggets of information about Percy Street Barbecue, the South Street barbecue restaurant from Steven Cook and Michael Solomonov slated for an October opening. It’ll be very Texan with brisket as king. There will also be salvaged materials from an unlikely spot. [Grub Street]

Meal Ticket has the latest on Rubb, Matt Levin’s Manayunk BBQ spot aiming for a September opening. It’ll be a small 25-seat spot with four smokers, each using a different wood. The menu highlight will be the exclusive Elysian Fields lamb served with a North African pepper sauce. Also, Levin’s pig mascot needs a name. Can you beat the names already posted?  [Meal Ticket]
