Went to Smoke Meat Pete’s, 37 kilometres west from Peel and Sherbrooke. It’s way out there. I think they need a second location a tad closer.
Busy place, Smoked Meat Pete’s. Kind of rustic, and if I read it right, they often have all-day live blues.
If I was to compare it to Schwartz’s, I can only say this. It was shocking to have that first gigantic smoked meat at Schwartz’s because I’d never had such a thing. So I feel Schwartz’s comes out on top by a slight margin. Pete’s was a bit fattier, but still delicious. Didn’t like the cole slaw, but it was a friendly and well-organized hustling, bustling place. Owner Pete Varvaro must be a happy guy.
The experience at Smoke Meat Pete’s was fantastic but Schwartz’s was the shocker. So Schwartz’s gets an A-plus and Smoke Meat Pete’s an A.
