Hutchins BBQ, McKinney 2/24/16
Stopped by again on the way through McKinney. The brisket was awesome. It was tender and juicy with good smoke flavor and well rendered fat. Ribs were nice but slightly overcooked. Definitely still a top 50 joint. We arrived about 5 pm and by the time we left they were packed with a long line at the drive-thru.
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.
