It always seemed that every time that I would lament the lack of barbeque in Lancaster someone would be around to ask if I had ever checked out Millstone BBQ in Logan. Today, I finally did.
Mrs. Crabby and I started out with an appetizer of bacon wrapped burnt ends. I love the intense flavor of burnt ends so this seemed like a no brainer. Disappointment level: high. It tasted like a tough piece of pot roast wrapped in undercooked bacon. Not much in the way of smoke at all.
We split a meat sampler to try all of their offerings:
Pulled Pork - the best of the offerings. Pretty good smoke ring and pretty moist. Could have used a bit of rub. OK.
Brisket - a light smoke ring. Not much smoke taste or for that matter not much taste at all. Could have stayed in the smoker another hour or so to tenderize.
Sausage - overly salty, dry, and leathery. Nasty.
Ribs - properly tender but not much flavor.
Turkey - supposed to be smoked but tasted like plain old roast turkey. A bit dry.
Nice atmosphere. Really annoying waiter that thought he was so clever. I though the place was overpriced.
If I have the time to drive to Logan for Q I will spend a few more minutes and drive to Columbus to visit City BBQ. City is not the best I have ever had, but it is the best I’ve tasted in Ohio.
