Dinosaur BBQ, Stamford


There are extreme sandwiches that are so ridiculous that it’s not even feasible to eat one, and there are others that fall into the extreme category without being cartoonish (and it helps if it’s actually good). The latter explains the Pork-Sket (pulled pork, sliced brisket, melted cheddar, jalapeño pickles, slaw, and horsey mayo, a mayo-horseradish combo). When this piled-high barbecue sandwich reaches the table, it’s intimidating. But once you get hold of it, squeeze it down, and take a big bite, it turns out to be a manageable, smoky, delicious experience, despite its obviously wicked calorie count. But let’s face it: You’re at a barbecue joint; counting calories is illegal.
