It’s been a while since my last BBQ post, so I am overdue for one of my favorite foods. When I think of BBQ, my mind conjures up images of “fall off the bone” ribs or juicy beef brisket. When I think of PM BBQ, I can only think of one thing… chicken.
Your first thought could be that I have lost my mind. While I’m sure there are arguments to be made that could support that stance, this is not one of them. Every time I visit PM BBQ, I order the half chicken meal.
It looks like a small fryer that is smoked with a dry rub applied. The skin turns is gorgeous golden brown color and has a slight peppery flavor. The meat itself stays juicy all the way through and has a hint of smoke. This is a meal where you just tear into it in with your hands. Don’t worry there are plenty of paper towels on each table.
They have a wide variety of sides. I always order the sweet corn spoonbread. Trust me on this one. The other sides are good, but this is head-and-shoulders above the rest.
Now that my son is older, the trick has become finding places where he will eat restaurant food. This has been hit-or-miss so far and unsuccessful attempts can result in having to feed him something more when I get home. In that respect, PM BBQ has vaulted itself to the top of my son’s list. I ordered him the kid’s turkey meal with mac n’ cheese.
He loved it! He finished all the mac n’ cheese and most of the turkey. The ease of finding a meal that he enjoys is definitely worth mentioning. The fact that it is served on a Frisbee with paper on top was a nice touch.
PM BBQ is yet another great BBQ place in the St. Louis metro area. If you are in the Chesterfield valley, I would highly recommend it. PM BBQ provides an alternate answer for the classic riddle, “Why did the chicken cross the road?” Clearly any chicken whose fate lands it in PM BBQ is honored in this fantastic dish.
Dive 2 Five Scale: 3. Great kid friendly place in Chesterfield. Like most BBQ places in STL, you order at a counter and the food is brought out to you. They have some beer to help wash down their tasty BBQ.
