BBQ Tour 2009 Day Six: KT’s BBQ and Deli

The tour resumed today at KT’s BBQ and Deli located in Reading near the intersection of Reading and Galbraith.  The first thing you notice about the place is the busty mannequin, “Barbe Q,” greeting visitors by the front door.  Barbe Q, you’ll remember, has caused quite a stir recently.  The store itself has a small area inside which is decorated with headshots from famous folks who have dropped by, along with a counter for placing orders but no room for indoor dining.  There is a picnic table and two smaller tables outside the restaurant, but most of the business is clearly carry-out.


KT’s had just reopened today after a three week hiatus for vacation and as such had only a limited menu to choose from.  Pulled pork, chicken, or brisket sandwiches with green beans or cole slaw were the only menu items available, although mac-n-cheese was “in the oven.”  We’ll have to return another time to try the full menu, but we walked out with two pork sandwiches, a brisket sandwich, and two orders of slaw.

My brisket sandwich was very good, especially with the thin, vinegary BBQ sauce provided separately in a small plastic tub.  It’s hard to really give the lowdown on KT’s given the lack of food available, but I can say without hesitation the sandwiches were excellent.  Service from two ladies at the counter was friendly and efficient, although the frequent intrusions by the owner to bark out reasons for the limited menu (no one was asking) suggest perhaps he could use another three weeks of vacation.
