If you love BBQ and happen to be in Los Angeles…we have the perfect BBQ restaurant for you…Pearl’s BBQ knows a bit about BBQ. The key to good ‘ole Barbecue is shrouded in mystery, requiring patience, time, and a stubborn streak long enough to last until it is just right. But, living by the motto “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” Blanchard knew that there was no need to reinvent the wheel.
Armed with a handcrafted Texas smoker, plenty of white oak, C.A.B. Certified Angus Beef, and training from the best pit masters in Texas, Blanchard continues to consistently serve the best Barbecue in L.A. since Pearl’s BBQ first opened last November. Of course, none of this would be possible without secret spices passed down from Grandma Pearl herself, and after nearly 16 hours in the smoker, the Brisket is ready to be enjoyed alongside some homemade sides like the Baked Beans, Coleslaw with house-made mayo, and creamy Potato Salad.
The Beef Short Ribs served by the pound and smoked for nearly 12 hours are well worth the wait and a must at Pearl’s, and if the Barbecue alone does not have you falling head over your boots, a slice of freshly made Pearl’s Apple or Pecan Pie, created from a recipe that has been handed down for over five generations, is sure to do the trick. Then, be sure to wash it all down with a refreshing beverage like Topo-Chico Mineral Water, Nesbitt’s Honey Lemonade, Big Red Soda or a Mexican Coco Cola.
