Day 151 of 365…

Don’t you love it when you stumble upon something you don’t expect? That thing that just seems out of place and can’t exist where you are. Well, today I had just that experience. A friend recently mentioned I should stop in and check out Daddy D’s BBQ on Fourth Plain by Auto Mall Drive. Daddy Ds Southern Style BBQI thought to myself, there’s no BBQ place there. Come to find out it’s in the Shell Station on the corner (yes there are signs out I’ve just never noticed them).

Let me tell you, I’m so thankful my friend mentioned this to me because Donnie and his family are slow cookin some amazing BBQ at this location. Now it’s my turn to tell all of my friends in Vancouver and the rest of Clark County (and Portland too) that you NEED to come and enjoy some good ol southern style BBQ. Donnie Vercher shows up at 5:30AM to get things going so that we can enjoy some pure smoky goodness. His brisket is on for at least 12 hours and pork on at least 8. He’s not cutting any corners on this BBQ. He’s using apple wood and cherry wood amongst others. You’ll find chicken, ribs, links and baked beans, homemade potato salad, collard greens, slaw and even more.

I had the Pull Pork Sandwich and it was moist, tender, full of wonderful smoke flavor and prepared just right. There was a large portion of pork on this sesame bun. I actually ate some of the meat out with a fork then finished off the sandwich. I can’t wait to go back to try a brisket sandwich, pork ribs, chicken…
