You know what's in the baked beans at Big T's? Big pieces of shredded beef. Big beef at the top, big beef under the surface. The "Big" in this barbecue joint's name is no lie, then, and the flavor is big, too: spicy and rich, with the right level of smokiness — present but not overpowering. Both meat and beans get the slow-cooked treatment here, and the service is friendly and unassuming, as relaxed as a turning rotisserie. The water is in plastic pitchers, the fries (perfect for dipping) come in paper sacks, and the smell of pork and beef cooking since the night before rushes up to meet you with a warm embrace. If you've overlooked Big T's, go and taste the beans. You'll be back.
