Massachusetts BBQ and Beans What

This is real barbecue according to New Bedford’s portequese community. This picture is courtesy of http://otrwjam.wordpress.com

In 2010 I traveled for work to Massachusetts. I ended up looking all over carnation for good que. Turns out if you want it, you have to go to a chain restaurant and order whatever seemingly resembles BBQ a’ la’ carte. Most of the area which I visited, (up around New Bedford) was Portuguese community and their version of barbecue, is quite frankly, a shish ka bob grilled to death. I don’t get it. No pulled pork. No pulled beef. What gives?

Oh, I should give credit where credit is due. Boston baked beans are everywhere. It’s a staple. Not just in Boston.

Now what the hellĀ  happened to good que?
