This was another Texas Monthly Top 50 joint Scott had never sampled, though I have had them several times at Texas Monthly and other BBQ fests. This is your usual cafeteria style BBQ joint where you cue up for que and go down the line adding sides etc. I grabbed my usual 3 meat plate of sliced brisket, ribs, and jalapeno cheese sausage and added some mac and cheese and broccoli rice.
Both the brisket and ribs were tender and moist but had no smoke flavor. The sausage had a great kick, the spiciest I had all day, and was a definite highlight. It would have killed Scott. Sides were average.
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.
