Bringle’s Smoking Oaisis
After his success at his first Nashville barbecue joint, Peg Leg Porker, pitmaster Carey Bringle takes diners deep in the heart of Texas with his new outpost. Leaning more toward brisket, beef ribs, and sirloin than his pork-centric original home, Bringle offers a rotating menu of fabulous smoked meats. You never know what will be on the menu, and when an item runs out, it’s gone for the day, because you can’t rush perfection. That’s exactly how it should be in a proper BBQ spot. If need be, pick another excellent option and retire to the expansive outdoor area to enjoy yard games, big screens, and cold drinks, especially now that the weather just begs for eating outside.
Peg Leg Porker pitmaster Carey Bringle turned his attention from West Tennessee to Texas at his latest smoked meat emporium. While you’ll still find pork on the menu, the selections are much beefier than at his original joint in the Gulch. From smoky brisket to massive beef ribs and smoked prime rib, it’s a carnivore’s delight. The expansive outdoor area has quickly become a popular neighborhood hang thanks to picnic tables for families, huge televisions for watching the big game, local craft brews, and frozen cocktails.
Cavendish says: “FINALLY, someone has heard my pleas for burnt ends. Carey Bringle's West Side smoke emporium not only gives us the traditional beef version, but also pork belly burnt ends and thin cut glazed bacon. It's a welcome bit of diversity in a town devoted mostly to pork shoulders.”
When champion pitmaster Carey Bringle opened his first restaurant, Peg Leg Porker, the focus was on West Tennessee-style pork. With his latest smokehouse, Bringle turns his talents to the beefy barbecue of Texas. In addition to brisket, ribs, and smoked prime rib, the highlight at the Smoking Oasis is the spacious outdoor area, covered with turf and strewn with yard games, picnic tables, and comfy chairs that offer a view of the big game on the big screens. It’s already become an essential neighborhood hang.
So many people have asked pitmaster Carey Bringle why he never cooked beef brisket at his original Peg Leg Porker restaurant that he opened a brand new concept that revolves around that sort of Texas-style barbecue. The food is great, but the real highlight is the dog-friendly and family appropriate outdoor space with huge turf lawns, picnic tables, yard games and all the big games shown on televisions so big that they’d be at home in a minor league baseball stadium.
