Restaurant Description
Owners Bernie and Linda Watson created LJ's BBQ to replicate the feel of the "Eat it 'n Beat It" authentic roadside barbecues that Bernie's family from Arkansas and Virginia had come to love. LJ's is named after Bernie's wife, Linda and his late grandmother Miss Leola Jean, whose recipes fill the menu.

LJ's opened in 2001 to a host of critical reviews including "Best of Rhode Island". Today, LJ's continues to offer outstanding family values and genuine down home cooked meals. LJ's has achieved their proven track record as an Award Winning Barbecue Restaurant by specializing in the preparation and service of hickory smoked ribs, chicken, beef, and pork, prepared by low and slow cooking in their customized barbecue pit.

"The Coveted Pink Smoke Ring in Barbecue Meats"

Slow cooked barbeque meats often exhibit a pink ring around the outside edge of the product. This pink ring may range from 1/8 inch to 1 /2 inch thick. In beef the ring is reddish-pink and in pork, chicken and turkey it is bright pink. This pink ring is often referred to as the "smoke ring" and is considered a prized attribute to many barbeque meats, especially barbecue beef briskets.

Occasionally consumers have mistakenly felt that the pink color of the smoke ring meant the meat was undercooked, however, barbeque connoisseurs know the presence of the coveted smoke ring indicates the item was slow smoked for a long period of time.
