Yes, pork is the main attraction at this terrific barbecue joint from Pappy's Smokehouse pitmaster Skip Steele. Give the prime rib a try, though. You can order it naked, with sides, and enjoy the thinly sliced, impossibly tender, mildly smoky meat soaked in its own rich juices. But for the full effect, opt for the hoagie sandwich version, on which strands of smoked onion bring just the right amount of bite -- and a bonus hit of smoke -- to the party.
