Finger Lickin' Sneak Peek at Big Earl's BBQ

Last week we brought you a sneak peek at the new eats on the menu at Big Earl's BBQ, Old Town Scottsdale's newest joint for ribs and 'que. 

Meat explosion! Ribs, pulled pork, brisket, hot links, they've got enough on the menu to satisfy all your carnivorous instincts. Plus enough deep fried, down home country fare to comfort you at first bite. Fried pickles, catfish po'boys, and enough offal to keep one of our bloggers very, very happy. (Sweetbreads and pig's feet and bone marrow, oh my!) 

You can even wrap up the dinner with a frozen, chocolate-dipped "treat"-- The Johnson. Dirty frozen bananasicles! Perfect for the Scottsdale scene. 

Last night, Big Earl's opened its doors to friends and family for a preview of the good old-fashioned fare that Chef James Porter of Petite Maison is bringing to the Valley. With Desert Smoke BBQ on board as well, this weekend's opening day will probably be pretty packed. Check out all the good eats February 5th.

Sneak a peek at all the meaty eats after the jump!
