Whiskey Six BBQ is an organic, local, sustainable barbecue joint nestled in the heart of East Vancouver. I came with a few foodies to eat mass amounts of meat to kick off the long weekend. A few of us have been eyeing this place to see how their BBQ would compare.
The space is small and they don’t take reservations. First come first serve. On a Thursday, it didn’t start getting busy until around 7pm.
I got the Strange Fellow’s Talisman West Coast Pale Ale as I thought it would be great to pair with BBQ.
Windsor Meats Sausage
We got 2 links, and chose braised greens and wings as our sides. It also comes with a slice of Fife Bakery bread, mustard and pickle. The sausage was good and it had a kick of heat to it. We added $2 extra for the wing option and it was worth it. As they are whole wings, so its meaty. The braised kale needed a bit more seasoning to it.
Johnston’s Back Ribs
We got the full rack of ribs and we got the fries and smokey beans. The ribs were more like smoked ribs so it’s not a wet rib.
Johnston’s Prohibition Pulled Pork
The pulled pork was really good and we got it with the coleslaw, and southern biscuits. The 2 biscuits that came with it tasted more like baking soda and was missing something. I liked the coleslaw as it had a delicious tang to it.
Free Range Farmcrest Smoked Chicken
The chicken was tender and had a good flavour, but it reminded us of rotisserie chicken. We got the coleslaw and potato salad.
Blue Goose Cattle Co. Organic Beef Brisket
Of all the BBQ meats that we had, the beef brisket was our favourite.
Overall, their BBQ is different that what we were used to. The flavours are more tame and it’s not saucy. They put their own twist on West Coast BBQ and to us it didn’t stand out.
