Best of the City 2013: Electric Mud’s nontraditional slow-smoked ribs

Best of the City: Electric Mud's sticky, peanut-flecked ribs

Everyone seems to be a barbecue purist today, with adamant opinions about regional rub variants, applewood versus hickory, saucy versus dry. This Parkdale smokehouse isn’t for everyone. It’s run by the non­conformist pair behind Grand Electric, the neighbouring taco and bourbon den. Their sticky pork ribs are tender from a long spell in a Southern Pride smoker, and glazed with chili and tamarind. As a final unconventional touch, they’re sprinkled with scallions and crushed peanuts. $14.50 for a half-rack.

Electric Mud, 5 Brock Ave., 416-516-8286
