    Texas Monthly's 2021 list of Best BBQ Joints just dropped

    Is your favorite on the list? Their staff visited and reviewed 411 BBQ restaurants over an 8 week period to come up with their 2021 listing of their 50 favorites.

    We’re talking bacon burnt ends, beef cheeks, birria, blueberry-and-Gouda sausage, brisket-topped elote, and guava-glazed pork ribs. And those are just the meat offerings. Side dishes and desserts range as far afield as Big Red tres leches cake, blistered brussels sprouts, carrot soufflé, citrus-beet salad, and brisket fried rice. And we haven’t even gotten to the wine lists.

    Looks like they only list the top 10 in order, the other 40 are in alphabetic order by city.

    If it matters, Franklin is #7.

    (side note: they'll be listing "honorable mentions" on the site soon)

        Yes sir 👍 Good luck with the lines now. 😢 I’d expect them to be jammed for a while.

          Yea can you imagine, they went to 411 bbq joints to find the top 100. That times a factor of 4 or 5 are the actual number of bbq restaurants in the State. As I've said before, they are becoming like Starbucks or McDonalds, one on every street corner.

          Lucky us! Now if only the taco trucks would start cruising the neighborhoods like ice cream trucks...

        Hmmm, not saying the new list isn’t good, but for the perineal avorites to drop like that something big must have changed.

            That was the Brenham restaurant, the Houston branch opened in 2018. That’s the one that will have greater attention locally. Good for them, well deserved!!

          Are any of you familiar with #1 in Ft Worth?

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
