    Thanks, seems like ages ago. I ended up going to Blood Brothers. They did not disappoint.

    Pinkertons is a few blocks from my house. I think it's pretty good. But I don't think it lives up to the hype.

    I like Gatlins pretty well.

    My son's wife is from Houston and he spent a lot of time there while he was in Galveston. His recommendations:

    Tex/Mex - Guadalajara - Escalante's (2nd is his preference, 1st is his wife's)
    Gulf Seafood - Tony Mendola's
    BBQ - The Pit Room

Friday noon try a pork chop at Perry’s. Pricey at night but a very good deal then. Lupe Tortilla is my favorite “chain” Tex mex. Rudy’s is the only good chain bbq place and it is fine. Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese all awesome.
    I don't care much for Dickies and don't see the point with Rudy's everywhere

    texastweeter Nothing personal, in fact, I feel for the fans of Houston. If the 2017/18 roster ever gets around to offering an apology, first and foremost should be the Houston fans.

    I'll be staying off of Sam Houston blvd. BBQ or Texmex sounds good to me. Thanks for the suggestions.

    ComfortablyNumb , That’s it! I couldn’t recall exactly but it definitely seems we are talking of the same thing.

    Yeah only 2 chain BBQ joints I'll eat at. Rudy's, and Dickies

    Actually it's called 'Asterisks', and the custom to get your server's attention is to beat on a trash can.

    I’ll second fracmeister ‘s recommendation for good Tex Mex at Lupe Tortilla.

    Don’t some of the Astros’ have a BBQ joint there... I believe it is called Cheaters-Q!

    I heard they rigged or stole their “championship winning bbq” title sign or something like that. I think they are known for their beer can chicken and boiled ribs.

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.

Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

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.
