BCC Enterprises Jon-Jon's BBQ, San Jose
Another name change. Back when I used to live in the Bay Area, these guys were known as BCC, or Bethesda Community Church, BBQ (1305 Old Oakland Road, 297-5799). Now it looks like they've taken up a much more memorable Jon-Jon's moniker instead. Actually, the most memorable thing about this place is the venue itself: at a former gas station in front of a trailer park and with some smoking vessels for the meat right next to the street. It's definitely got character.
And fortunately the food was still just as good, with nice tasty fat interwoven into the delicate meat on the ribs as well as a tender tri-tip and delightfully spicy hot links. Of course, this wasn't exactly brisket from Texas, especially since they provided both sauce as well as forks here. But we are way out here in urban California after all, and with these guys around, one shouldn't even bother that commercialized stuff from Tony Roma's and Armadillo Willy's.
