We were impressed with this place at Smoked Dallas last year but it was not as impressive this visit. This was the first joint of the day to serve central Texas style on butcher paper and the presentation was impressive. Unfortunately the brisket was way overcooked and very roast beefy in flavor. Not a hint of smoke. Ribs were good and the sausage had a nice snap to the casing. However I could taste neither jalapeno or cheese in my jalapeno cheese sausage. It was so mild Scott had a taste and agreed it was pretty tasty. Their mac and cheese was very good and seemed home made. White cheddar maybe?
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.
