Barbecue is the name of Joe’s game. The two-meat plate offers a diner’s choice of any two meats; best are the white-meat turkey, surprisingly moist and flavorful, and the sausage, which has a super-spicy kick and a nice, crispy skin. Both are even better when dipped into Joe’s dark, savory barbecue sauce, served on the side. The same sauce also comes with the sampler platter, an extravagant tray-full of more of that tender, smoky white-meat chicken; fall-off-your-fork-tender brisket; a tasty but slightly dry pile of pulled pork and a short rack of pork ribs, nice and gristly with crispy edges, also slightly dry and prepared more like Chinese spare ribs. Sides are also expertly prepared. Mac and cheese and baked beans are best bets.
