Ezell's BBQ, Marshall, Texas 6/20/14
sampled about 4 pm 6/20/14
This is a spot Scott has told me about many times as his favorite in Marshall. He likes it as much for the rundown shack as the food. The shack is certainly rundown, in fact it looks like it is about to fall down. We discovered that if you want brisket in Marshall you'd better get there before 4 pm. The customer before us got the very last of the brisket. We ordered a few ribs to go and wandered out to the back of my truck to taste. Sorry Scott, that was just a nasty rib. I spit out my one bite. It definitely suffered greatly from holding issues as the outside was tough as leather and the inside was just mush. Yuck. Scott swears the brisket there is great.
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. If you know a great Texas BBQ joint we need to try, e-mail me at donotemp AT gmail DOT com. CLICK ON THE PHOTOS FOR A LARGER VIEW! I also have a separate bass fishing blog.
