Charlie's Real Wood Smoked BBQ is located off the only I-5 exit in Roseburg, Oregon. This place is worth the drive. Charlie doesn't advertise the type of wood he smokes with, but he should. It's applewood! I have been smoking my own meats for the past 30 years, and to me, applewood is better than pecan and hickory. And definitely better than oak or mesquite.
My son Adam and I discovered this place when coming back from hiking in snow-covered the forrest uplands of Oregon. Adam now always looks for an excuse to return to the Roseburg area so we can go back to Charlie's.
This is the best baby-back pork ribs I have ever put in my mouth. Look how meaty and lean. This stuff is smoked to perfection. I wish I could smoke meats this well. Barbecue sauce is an after-the-fact option at Charlie's ... and I like that.
Charlie's serves plates, but I just order the meats. Whomever I am with just orders whatever sides they want. His brisket is has just enough fat to flavor the meat, tender and smoked to perfection.
If some of you prefer leaner meats, go for the smoked turkey breasts. I love it, not because it's lean, but because it's smoked turkey. And the stuff at Charlie's is great.
