Music Fans Need Food Too: Barbecue at Deux Cochon

On Monday I stopped by the grand opening of a new food vendor in the Public Market House in Monument Square right in the heart of downtown Portland. Deux Cochon is – and I need to breathe a sigh of relief every time I say this – an amazing BBQ joint. Yes, in Maine. Last week I checked out the prerequisite pulled pork sandwich and nearly ordered a second one before I’d even finished (no worries about how filling they are – it’s just that the flavor was so good I didn’t want it to end)! On this celebratory occasion, I went with the special of the day, smoked pork ribs with Rock City espresso barbecue sauce. It was – as expected – perfect (but don’t try attacking it with silverware, you’ve gotta get in with your hands on that one). I’ll be back soon for the bacon toffee, beet pickled eggs, and their signature BAT (bacon, arugula, tomato) sandwich. Check out some photos below.
