This is one several spots Scott had been wanting to try. It is not related to the Off the Bone BBQ in Dallas. We arrived a bit early and found the crew inside were hardcore about keeping the doors locked until exactly 11 am. After making our way inside at the official opening time, we ordered our usual, mine being brisket, ribs, and a hot link. After a short wait a nice lady delivered our plates and we were off and running on our latest adventure. The brisket here was particularly nice. It was tender and moist with good smoke flavor and well rendered fat, though there was not a lot of fat on my brisket. Ribs were a mixed bag, with Scott calling his excellent while mine were chewy and tough. My ribs had good flavor and lite smoke but they were definitely undercooked. The hot link was neither hot or spicy and just tasted like bland sausage. The brisket was a winner here but that was about it.
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.
