Today we will revisit a very tasty BBQ restaurant in Clovis California called ‘QN4U’. Our last visit was just a tease to entice us back. The only problem with this palace of smoky delights is the three hour distance from our abode. It was on the way home from our latest trip to Arizona. A hotel room a couple of doors down was procured to sleep off this meat coma. Walking into QN4U, the sounds, smells and sights will start the taste buds dancing. A couple of frosty mugs of our favorite beverage whetted our appetite while browsing through the menu.
The “Texas Tommie” (The Worlds most outrageous hot dog). This is a giant, and I do mean giant hot dog stuffed with cheddar cheese and jalapenos, wrapped in bacon and deep fried. It is served on a bun with a special ‘Tommie Sauce”. This was just the warm- up dish. It was huge and very colorful. We only had a few bites because we needed to save room for the rest of the meal.
A combination platter of pork ribs and ‘Burnt Ends’ brisket was up next. The Burnt Ends are meat candy that we love. The ribs were tasty and done to perfection. The still moist cornbread muffins were served with sweet honey butter. Would I have room for the pecan pie?
QN4U is run by multiple award winning pitmasters Brent & Kim Walton. Brent was gracious to come by our table and swap stories. He is a local celebrity. He has done local cooking shows and is auditioning for a national spot on ‘BBQ Pitmasters.’ Once again we had a great meal. It was fun to talk to Brent. We hope to return soon.
