Review: Chasi’s Place BBQ

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Columbus, Eating Local, Restaurant Review

Update: Chasi’s has moved to a building near the corner of James and Main (technically on Main, just east of James, right by the motel) on the East side. Keep an eye out for the sign and the smoker outside.

This past weekend was a great one – one full of new food discoveries. Just when I think I’ve had everything that Columbus has to offer, I make one new discovery after another. I’ve been on the lookout for new food trucks ever since Taco Trucks Columbus came to fruition, but this was the first time I’ve ever seen a BBQ truck.

I sent Paul over to scout it out, and was amazed by what he found.

Sign for Chasi's Place

Chasi’s Place BBQ is on Briggs Rd, a little bit west of Briggs High School. It’s run by one Joe Craig, a God-fearin’ Tennessee native who taught himself to cook when he was growing up in a big family. He was so friendly, and a pleasure to speak with, and more than happy to talk barbecue, one of his loves.

He lives right across the street, which makes it easy for him to drag over his smoker every morning to fire it up. He prefers using hardwoods because of the superior flavor. On this particular day, he was using cherry. By the time we got there, the ribs had been smoking for hours and were fall apart tender.

But the true test? Is in the eating. A full slab of ribs (actually honest to goodness spare ribs, long and thick with meat) is twice the amount shown below (and you’re only seeing one layer there, there’s actually another layer of ribs in that box), and can easily feed 4 normal people or 2 people with ravenous appetites. They are *the* best ribs I’ve had, ever, beating even those I’ve had down south. Nicely dry rubbed, smoked for hours, and served with a side of his homemade BBQ sauce – totally worth the $20 per slab cost.

He also has perch sandwiches ($6), which were nicely cornmeal breaded and deep fried to perfection. If you’re eating it in sandwich form, though – watch out for the pinbones, of which there were quite a few. It looks like 6 fillets come on a sandwich, so it’s one heck of a value.

Later on, we also had a smoked chicken ($11, but not pictured), which was also amazing – the flavor went though clear to the bone, and it was unbelievably tender and juicy.

He usually does sides (potato salad, collard greens, etc) but didn’t yesterday, so we’re hoping to stop by again soon to try them.

Who would have thought that you could find the best BBQ in Columbus at a roadside truck? I sure didn’t, but now that I know….

If you’d like to go: Chasi’s Place BBQ, 2686 Briggs Rd, Columbus, 43204, 614.209.8758 (call ahead orders accepted), Tues-Sun 11a-7p.
