This is BRC Gastropub's Pulled Backyard Barbecued Chicken Sandwich. And I can tell you it is one hell of a chicken sandwich, ya'll. Seriously, I wish this is what went down in my backyard.
It comes piled high with tender shredded meat that gets kick from a heavily-spiced but still ultra-light barbecue sauce. Was that clove I detected? It's unexpected and superb.
But wait, that's not all.
The slightly creamy blue cheese slaw is perfectly tangy and brings a wonderful crunch, while the pickled onions add a hint of tartness. But it's the heat from the hunks of sliced jalapeno that really makes this sandwich a winner.
With all of the sweet, spice, and crunch going on in between my buttery, griddled Slow Dough bun, I didn't even need the basket of fries that came alongside.
But that's probably because my table also ordered a bubbling skillet of mac & cheese to split for good measure.
