    College Station, TX area recommendations?

    Looking for something in the College Station / Bryan, TX areas. Willing to travel.

    What are you looking for?


      Assuming you are looking for BBQ, the usual recommendation is Frank's.

      I have reviewed it (just now)


        It was ok (Franks). Not what I expected. I did however, find Blue Moon BBQ in Hearne, TX. It is not too far from Bryan/College Station and had just what I was looking for - a little bit of everything.

        ​The chicken was to die for. Very well done. Ribs had just the right amount of moistness and was near fall off the bone yet still wasn't overdone. Brisket? Yes! It was tender, juicy, and flavor to kill for. That was some meat that spoke for itself! They didn't have BBQ beans but greens and potato salad were just like mom makes. I thought that maybe she was out back helping out. I have been back twice and its a 13 hour drive one way for me. Get some Hot Shots when you are there. They are bacon wrapped jalapenos that are stuffed with love.


          Lone Star BBQ in Huntsville was pretty good. I've only had their brisket, sausage, and beans, but it was the best I've had in Huntsville since the old man died that used to do all the cooking at the old Church.If you're coming in to town off of 30 take a right at the second light past 45. You'll see it immediately on the left. It's a red food trailer. I'm not sure how their pork and ribs are. Brisket was tender and moist with a nice amount of smoke to it. Sausage was good and smokey too. Te beans were really good and had bits of brisket in them. I think they are only open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 to 3.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          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.
