Brisket smokehouse platter
Pimanyoli’s Smokehouse Café
Opened in 2008 by the late Edward “Piman” Perrilloux and his wife Yolanda, Pimanyoli’s Smokehouse Café on Airline Highway near Barringer Foreman Road has become a popular destination for Capital City barbecue fans. After her husband’s untimely death, Yolanda “Yoli” Perrilloux stepped in to run the restaurant, whose name fuses their two nicknames. “Brisket is one of the big things that people come in for,” says Perrilloux. “Brisket in any form.” Tender slices of smoked brisket are served on an amped-up chef salad, in various sandwiches and on the brisket smokehouse platter, where they’re joined by homestyle sides like mac and cheese, baked beans, coleslaw, smoked sweet potatoes and corn pudding.
