I have seen soulmans all over town but have never stopped to give it a try. I wanted some bbq and ran into it. Its a chaon so there are signs talking about how good theor bbq is. I decided to try the two meat plate for 11.99. One of the signs said that they have been around for 40 years and still smoking. When I sat down with my brisket I looked it over and it did not look dry. So at least that was good. Upon further inspection the meat looked a little pale. So this lead me to believe that the meat was not smoked. There was also no smoke ring that I could see. I tasted the meat and it was tender and properly cooked but it lacked taste. I could safely conclude that the brisket is baked in a pan. There was sprinkles of seasoning but it looked as if it was added after the baking process. I tried to add a little flavor with sauce. The sauce was pretty watered down and overly sweetened. It did not make the meat any better. Overall the brisket is edible and cooked properly.
I was curious about the smoke process so after I left I drove around the back to see any stacks of wood and a smoker but all I found was a large oven attached to the building with a gas line going in in the side. Certainly I was dissapointed with soulmans and will probably not return.
