Robert Earls Real Deal BBQ

Los Angeles
BBQ Joint

Since 2013, Robert Earl, his wife and son have buffeted north Long Beach with pecan wood smoke, which billows from the custom barrel set-up in back. This storefront, which has red and white checked tablecloths, wagon wheels, and model cars on the wall, has earned a fast reputation for serious meat. Their pork spare ribs are lacquered with sauce and cook for 4-5 hours until they’re juicy and carry a satisfying chew. Request spicy sauce, which has good pop, but won’t stun your tastebuds.
