Hutchin's BBQ, Mckinney, Texas

Sampled 11/10/14
So we had some friends in town today and the question came up about where do you go for great evening BBQ in DFW?  That was a noggin scratcher.  Most of the better joints open at 11 and run out of food a few hours later.  Even Lockhart Smokehouse can be iffy after 7 pm.  We finally decided on making the trip up to Hutchins BBQ in McKinney.  They are one of the few joints that keep "regular" hours and yet have very good que.  After a long wait in Central Expressway traffic, we managed to roll up at 8 pm. 

Now 8 pm might not be the best time to go for great BBQ, but Hutchin's did a very nice job.  The brisket was fresh, moist, tender, and smoky.  Fat was perfectly rendered and delicious.  I ordered 2 spare ribs but the cutter gave me more than that and for free.  He said it was the last rack and he didn't want us to judge their ribs on the last rack.  We didn't, and they were pretty good for the last rack.  I made sure to pass them around for all to enjoy.  The jalapeno cheese sausage had a nice beefy flavor but not much of a kick.  Mac and cheese was average.

I thought it was well worth the drive but I could have done without all that traffic.  I still need to fast up one day and head over for lunch for their all-you-can-eat special.  Very friendly service and the best BBQ you can find at 8 pm on a Monday!
