Raney Brothers BBQ

Raney Brothers BBQ is a food truck roaming various areas of Seattle, Washington. They can be found in South Lake Union, SoDo, Ballard, and Wallingford, depending on the day. Paul and Tom Raney have been selling their scrumptious BBQ sandwiches since mid-August 2011.

Menu (late October 2011)
My friend and I found Raney Brothers parked near the corner of Fairview and Republican in Seattle. As I do with every BBQ joint, I ordered the pulled pork sandwich ($8):

“Pulled pork which has been dry-rubbed with Uncle Pauly’s secret blend of spices for 24 hours before being slow smoked to perfection over fruit wood for 12+ hours, then mixed with BBQ sauce. Served on a potato roll with grilled onions, cheese, and Red Cabbage Slaw”

Getting a better shot of the pork, slaw, and caramelized onions
I loved the pulled pork here. Very juicy and tasty. The red cabbage slaw livened the experience with crunch, color, and extra flavor. What really set this sandwich apart from the others, in my opinion, was the caramelized onions. The silkiness in those onions showcases the talent these guys have. I also loved the melted cheese here, which I don't see in just every pulled pork sandwich. A well-executed toasted potato roll here, with the crunchy outside and the chewy inside. I dressed this sandwich with Raney Brothers' spicy BBQ sauce (patrons have a choice of regular or spicy). The spicy BBQ sauce was not spicy to me, but still very delicious. My friend and I agreed that it was one of the better pulled pork sandwiches we've had, let alone it coming from a food truck.

A nice portion for $8, and perhaps I'll consider trying some of their side dishes next time.

Other sandwiches (all $8) offered include pulled chicken, veggie, pork salad, chicken salad, cajun grinder, and sausage grinder. Check out Raney Brothers for some great grub today! 8.25/10
