There's something very summery about barbeque, but when the weather is so hot and humid, the last thing you want to be doing is tending the grill or the smoker. That's where SoulFire in Allston comes along.
The meat is expertly cooked and left unsauced so you can add your favorite from their line-up of sauces - the sweet sauce was this Bostonist's favorite. The pulled pork sandwich ($6.95) was piled high with tons of shredded meat, including some delicious little burned bits. Lone ribs ($2.75) can be purchased as a snack or added to a meal, and they are beautifully smoky and juicy.
Sandwiches come with one side and pickles, while entrees come with two sides, pickles, and cornbread. The collard greens are some of the best in the city, and the mac and cheese is the kind of homestyle stuff you wish mama could make.
SoulFire is open Monday-Thursday 11:30am-10:00pm, Friday and Saturday 11:30am-11:00pm, and Sunday noon-10:00pm.
