Tommy Boy Sausage Company, Weatherford, Texas, 8/2/14

Sampled about 4 pm
This is a new joint we passed heading west on 180 towards Mineral Wells and we made a mental note to check it out on the way back.  This joint is on the west side of Weatherford between Weatherford and Cool.  We were a bit taken aback by the sign offering linguine and clams, something we had never seen at any BBQ joint before, and probably never will again.  After our laughter subsided, we moseyed inside for our 5th BBQ meal of the day.  I was surprised not to see ribs on the board inside but I went ahead with sliced brisket and sausage with some garlic mashed potatoes.  Scott ordered a sliced beef sandwich.
After a short wait our food arrived and I got my second surprise of this visit.  The brisket had been sliced with the grain instead of against it, looking for all the world like roast beef.  That made a pull apart test impossible, but I think if it had been carved against the grain it would not have done too bad.  There was a bit of fat left and it was pretty well rendered but just a bit on the stiff side.  There was no smoke flavor.  The jalapeno cheese sausage tasted of neither and just tasted like regular sausage.  The garlic mashed potatoes were smooth and creamy with plenty of garlic flavor and were the highlight of the meal.  They had some interesting bourbon BBQ sauce and you could really taste the hint of bourbon.  Interesting, but not for me.

I made a pit stop and Scott let slip I had a BBQ blog.  That's something I hate because I want to experience every single meal as an average customer, with no special treatment.  We came to an understanding on that later!  However it did help produce the best meat of the stop when the boss man brought us a rib to sample.  It was tender and moist with excellent smoke flavor, the best meat we sampled there today.  As we checked out they brought us a few more ribs to go, gratis, which I left with Scott.  They told us they had only been open a little over a month and were still putting the finishing touches on their operation, so we may need to re-investigate later.  Scott said his sandwich was fine and he bagged it up for later consumption along with the extra ribs.  I would suggest they might want to take a trip up to Peadenville.
