    I am new to the forum. I found you guys while searching on tips to use my new smoker. my first smoker was a Brinkmann Smoke'N Grill. it worked OK but was very limited. Since I love to cook pulled pork and ribs I neede to make a move up. so now I own a Landmann Black Dog 42. no mods yet. I am still learning. I know next to nothing about smoking except that I have done quite a few pork butts with my old Brinkmann with some good results. any advice will be taken to heart.,

    have a great day

    Welcome to the SMF, Joe! Lived just north of Ocean Breeze from 95 till 00. Great location. Beach Bully is not bad for Que nearby either. This is a great to get tips and learn.

    Welcome Joe, from another Virginian. Any good bbq joints in Va Beach? We are vacationing in Williamsburg in a couple of weeks. We are going to try Pierce's, they say it is great.

    Beach Bully - 19th St at Baltic at Va Bch oceanfront
    ~ They have good pulled pork sammies

    You have Pierces covered. (good Que but a little too much sauce for my preference)

    Doumar's has been around forever in Norfolk, too:

    If you go see the USS Wisconsin (great to see) near Nauticus, go by there.

    Pierces is OK. I guess most locals like Beach Bully but nothing is a good as most small (home made) joints.

    Agree on this. There were not that many of these little joints there IIRC.

    Beach Bully did 'grow up' out of a being a small place as I went to that location (just south of Laskin Rd / Baltic Ave I think) before they built the new place. (others told me it had been around quite a while)

    But now that you make your own that is pretty much as good or better, why bother?

    BTW -- Doumars has been in Norfolk since 1904! (see web link)
