The new spot offers authentic barbecue with Racanelli’s own creative touch. Similar to popular barbecue joints located in hotspots such as Texas, Big V’s is only open on Saturdays. All the classic items like brisket, turkey and burnt ends are on offer, alongside sides made by Racanelli’s partner and wife Amy Racanelli, including street corn and a family recipe for potato salad. “The people really love my brisket. They go crazy for it,” Racanelli said.
