SILVER LAKE — A new barbecue spot, Charcoal, on Hyperion Avenue is seeking to be the pitmaster of Silver Lake, reports EaterLA. It replaces the old Lago D’argento Pizzeria and opened this week.
Charcoal touts itself as a modern Kansas City style of barbecue, with chef Jeremy Zimmerman in charge of a 1,700-pounds smoker, according to its website.
Partnered with Anat Escher (Barberella, Bugatta), Zimmerman brings his native Kansas City barbecue featuring slow-smoked ‘cue that takes up to 15 hours to prepare.
The menu offers dinners of pork back ribs, hand-crafted sausages to pork belly confit, and it includes happy hours and brunch. Bourbon-based cocktails abound, like the PD, Brown Sugar and Kentucky Lady.
