Lunch at Pecan Lodge
Stopped by the express line a little after 11 am today and grabbed some food to take south for a friend. There was only a short wait. I also came away with a couple of extra pounds of moist brisket and some of their excellent jalapeno sausage. Everything was outstanding, as always. The brisket had perfectly rendered fat and great smoke flavor. The coarse ground beef sausage had a great jalapeno bite with a hint of garlic. I can also testify the beef ribs were as good as beef ribs can get. Pecan Lodge is still "Takin' Care of Business."
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.
