Sundays in My Neck of the Woods


Sea Smoke BBQ is a new little eatery and take out joint in Scarborough, Maine.  It's in a small plaza on the right hand side of Route 1 as you are driving south from Portland.

You go up to the counter and place your order from a variety of choices listed on the wall menu.   You can pick from BBQ ribs, brisket, sausage, chicken, or pork  along with sides such as baked beans, coleslaw, fresh cut fries, green beans, sweet potato casserole, and others.   Hamburgers and hot dogs are another option, as well as family- and party-sized takeout combinations.


I counted 7 picnic tables which would seat 4 each, plus, as mentioned above, takeout is available, if you prefer.  


Mr. Eva and I elected to eat in.  I had the BBQ brisket and sausage, with fresh cut fries and baked beans.  A corn muffin came with it; Mr. Eva doesn't care for corn muffins, so he gave me his.


Mr. Eva had the BBQ sausage and pulled pork with the same sides I had;  he shared his pulled pork with me and I shared my BBQ brisket with him.  I had more than I could finish!

The service was quick and friendly and the food was delicious.  The only criticism I have to offer is the meats weren't very hot, temperature wise; they were just lukewarm.  They were delicious, just the same and would have been absolutely heavenly had they been a few degrees warmer!  The generous portioned meals are served on paper plates with plastic utensils.  (The brisket was wonderfully tender and easy to cut with the plastic knife.)  Beer is available as well as soft drinks by the bottle or fountain service cup.

Because Mr. Eva and I are portly souls, we aren't crazy about the picnic tables; that won't stop us from going back from time to time for takeout, I'm sure!  
This place is certainly worth a stop if you're in the area; I can't wait to try their ribs!

note:  I was not compensated for this review.  We paid for our meals and the opinions expressed are mine alone.

I should know better - I do it every Sunday-I poodle over here to read your post and end up ravenous.
It's breakfast time here so I'm going to do an almighty Fry up-when I put on ten pounds I'll just blame you!

Meat tender enough to cut with a plastic knife? THAT'S good cooking!!

Brian Miller said...

that is kinda scary for me...when the meat is not warm or hot...reheated?

Pat said...

Nothing like good bbq!

Picnic tables are hard to get in and out of for many people ...... maybe a call to the management, or even a letter telling them about your recent visit might encourage them to add some regular tables AND serve the meat hot! You never know....you might get some free coupons to return!

I do love a good BBQ place. Picnic tables and booths are not my favorite either.

Looks like a great place--I'll have to keep it in mind for the next time I'm up in that neck of the woods!

Gail said...

As I began to read, I thought, Go for the brisket!...and you did.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hi Eva, That bbq brisket looks absolutely fabulous and is making me hungry.

I'm with you on the picnic tables-- They are too hard for me to maneuver anymore, but it's good to know they do take-out.

THanks for another great dining tip.
