Plates from the Past’s loves barbecue and smoked meats.
A few weeks back on Saturday afternoon, Plates journeyed up the Waymart Hotel and Wranglers BBQ Pit in Waymart with two fellow bbq enthusiasts.
Wranglers BBQ Pit is a seasonal offering at the Waymart Hotel. According to their website they ware open from late spring to early fall. If you are going up for barbecue it is best that you check their Facebook page to make sure they are BBQing on the day you go. According to a Aug. 10 Facebook post the Wranglers is operating on Tuesday and Wednesday, 4-9pm with limited menu; Thursday and Friday, 4-9pm with full menu; and Saturday and Sunday, 12-9pm.
Despite a large crowd we were seated fast in the outdoor pavilion.
After reviewing the menu our group ordered the classics of bbq – ribs, brisket, pulled pork and barbecued chicken.
Following our meal and the picturesque drive back from Waymart back down to Scranton put Plates and his friends in the mood for ice cream.
We stopped at Ice Screamers in Moosic, PA. The ice cream shop recently moved to a new location in Moosic at 3738 Birney Ave. next door to Jack Williams Tires and Auto.
Plates decided to try the special sundae of the day – Holy Cannoli. The sundae had vanilla soft serve, chocolate chips, cannoli pieces and fresh cannoli filling.
