There's a new BBQ place in downtown MS called The Mercantile. It is pretty good, but not great. Where they fall short is their pork needs more smoke, but it's not some of the boiled, or steam table crap some others have tried to pass off as BBQ. It has some smoke, but needs more. What makes them unique is their BBQ sauce bar, which I really enjoyed. It had 6 or 8 different sauces on it. Their atmosphere is just like that of a turn of the century mercantile store.

I had an opportunity to try The Mercantile again. This time I had the ribs. They were listed as baby backs, but I would describe them as St. Louis style. They were dry and not wet. They were absolutely perfect. They were smoked on pecan. These were some of the best ribs I've ever had.

I paid them another visit recently and their baby back ribs are still absolutely perfect.

Sadly, this place went out of business.
