P. Red’s BBQ

An intown reincarnation of popular Cumming barbecue pit stop Pappy Red’s, the place sure looks the part: light brick walls, wood paneling, bric-a-brac, Coca-Cola signs, and a mounted steer’s head on the back wall. Sadly, the ‘cue—roundly mushy, lacking smoke, and, particularly in the case of pulled pork and pulled chicken, held too long—barely tastes better than the pap served at chain restaurants.
