Dubya's Smokehouse, Gilmer, Texas 6/21/14
sampled about 5:45 pm, 6/21/14
After driving around Gilmer a bit with Freddie King on the stereo, we finally came across Dubya's Smokehouse on the north side of town. I got a 3 meat plate with jalapeno cheese sausage and it was pretty good. This was some of the better brisket on this day with a lite smoke flavor and good moisture and tenderness. Same with the ribs which were also tasty. The jalapeno cheese sausage was nowhere near Kreuz, but it was still pretty good. I asked the guys where it was from and they said it was a Sysco product. I would not have guessed that.
I love barbecue. I always wanted to spend some vacation time sampling the best BBQ joints in Texas. A few years ago, my friend Scott and I started doing just that and we've been doing it every year since. We call it the "Calories and Cholesterol Tour". Since so many people were asking me about our experiences, I started writing them up. We are not expert eaters or writers. We just do this for fun and because we LOVE Texas BBQ.
A note about our reviews. We tend to be "stealth" reviewers. We don't ask for pit tours or cooking techniques and we try to be discrete about taking photos til after we are done. We want to experience each meal as an average customer.

I also have a separate bass fishing blog.
