Tuel's M&ET BBQ, Gilmer, Texas 6/21/14
sampled 6/21/14 about 5:15 pm
Another nice friendly place out in the country several miles west of Gilmer. They have a sign if you are coming east into Gilmer, but it comes up pretty quick when you're going west so we had to deploy the BBQ chutes once more. I got the 2 meat plate with brisket and ribs, but only because I didn't see "The Will" which is their 4 meat combo. The brisket was tough and chewy but the ribs were much better. They had nice moisture and tenderness and left a good bite mark. The "mexican corn" was an interesting side I had not seen before. Corn with melted cheese and jalapeno was a good tasting side.
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.
