The Q Fort Bragg
Fort Bragg, CA 95437, USA
Classic / classy "Q"And what did we eat at The Q, the downhome but culinarily upscale barbecue shack near Noyo Harbor in Fort Bragg? Delicious pulled pork, onion rings, and cole slaw (not shown), and this generous serving of super tender brisket with sides of sweet baked beans and mac'n'cheese. Going back someday for sure--for ribs, chicken, blackened fish, boar bacon burger, or if feeling veggie, the portobello mushroom sandwich. The place is the pet project of David LaMonica, who also owns the deservedly acclaimed Café Beaujolais in Mendocino.

Gourmet BBQ on California's North Coast
It was a day of variegated culinary indulgences that began with a spectacular vegan breakfast at the Stanford Inn in Little River, continued with a mushroom-dish, wine, and beer tasting at Camp Mendocino in the middle of the redwoods (this was the Beer, Wine & Mushroom Festival, after all) and sips of Port on the Skunk Train that carried to and from the cook-off, and almost ended with amazing brisket and pulled pork at The Q in Fort Bragg--a true "joint" with high-end preparations of barbecue classics (a labor of love by the chef of the acclaimed Cafe Beaujolais in Mendocino). "Almost" because we did some more wine tasting back at our B&B before heading out to catch a play at the Mendocino Theatre Company.
