We’ve written about the meat wizardry of Hyun Sun [Kim], the lady pit boss at Pit Stop Barbecue in Temple, Texas, before. You know you’ve reached a certain level of mastery when you become an instructor. Sun teaches classes on the art of smoking meat.
One imagines she’s quite the maestra. In the photo, Hyun Sun is placing the Kalbi beef ribs on a red hot bed of pecan wood coals. This is the first barbecue restaurant we’ve ever visited where the ribs were cooked per-order. Thankfully, Pit Stop is a small enough operation to actually be able to pull this off. If you want “fresh aromas”, Kim maintains, you have to cook the Kalbi per order.
We’re not arguing. Her beef ribs are divine.
