Brews and Q at Rahr Brewery in Fort Worth
The Mrs and I headed over to the Rahr and Sons brewery in Fort Worth. My Mrs loves the beer, but I went mainly for the band. Unbeknownst to us it was Rahr-B-Q day at the brewery and admission included a special BBQ themed pint glass. They also had a BBQ food truck on hand and I was surprised at how good it was. The brisket had nice smoke flavor, was tender and moist, and the fat was nicely rendered. My Mrs grabbed the Q and she is not yet trained to get the sauce on the side, but I found enough good slices unsauced to get a good sample. I definitely need to make an expedition to that food truck on another day when I'm not so sloshed on Brown Ale.
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.
