You may all hoard toilet paper, I shall eat BBQ!
With apologies to Davey Crockett, who said "You may all go to hell, I will go to Texas." Thursday, my buddy Scott picked up two whole briskets at Cattleack BBQ and one had my name on it. This morning, I headed up to Green's Texas BBQ in Euless and loaded up there. There were 20 folks in line when he opened at 11 AM and I was number 2. I plan on hitting one of my favorite local BBQ joints for take-out every week until the current crisis ends. Be safe, but eat well!
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.
