LAFAYETTE (KCBS) — It’s been 14 years since they opened their doors but Bo’s Barbecue in Lafayette is still making some of the best spareribs in the Bay Area.
Bo Harrison and his wife Ophelia started making their fantastic barbecue in 1999. They use Niman Ranch for both their ribs and beef brisket—which sits in the smoker for 20 to 23 hours. The temperature is set at 175 degrees which a very low heat. The slow cooking keeps it most and tender.
For the spareribs, you can choose between the large or small end. Two portions are also available: a huge dinner size or a smaller lunch size.
