Taste The Difference

Dec 5, 2022 | Annapolis

Nothing beats a farm-raised steak or porkchop grilled to perfection. Red Hot & Blue understands that the quality of ingredients plays a significant role in the final taste of our award-winning food. Therefore, our restaurant only uses the finest and freshest quality meat and produce.

Is Pork Meat Graded?

Beef is graded into three categories according to the USDA, choice, select, and prime. Prime beef is the best of the best and has a large amount of marbling. Prime beef is primarily produced from young, well-fed cattle. Prime beef is followed by choice beef. Choice has less marbling than prime, but it is still a great-tasting cut of beef. The lowest quality of beef is select, with the least amount of marbling and less overall flavor than prime or choice. Red Hot & Blue uses only the highest quality beef in our juicy, tender burgers.

Unlike beef, pork does not follow the same USDA grading scale. Pork is sold in various cuts, such as pork shoulder, pork butt, pork loin, ribs, etc. Each amount of meat will have its own “ideal” characteristics that we look for. The best way to tell high-quality pork apart from low quality is through appearance.

Red Hot & Blue takes pride in using the highest quality and freshest pork in our barbeque. It is part of what makes our barbeque so irresistible! Pork that does not have the ideal marbling or color does not make it into our final batch of barbeque.

Freshness Makes an Impact on Flavor

Red Hot & Blue is proud to say that we only use the highest quality ingredients in our kitchen. All of our smoked entrees, from the barbeque to the glazed ribs, will have you coming back for more.
