    Longhorn BBQ - Auburn

    Normally I do all the grill and BBQ for our backyard parties. However, for our son's graduation I had it catered. He wanted his parents involved in the party, not busy doing food stuff. We had Longhorn BBQ in Auburn do the catering. Their food is really good. If you are looking for either a restaurant to eat Q at or someone to cater your party, I highly recommend them.

    Longhorn is perhaps the most popular Q in Washington. Originally from near the Spokane Airport, they've branched out and and consolidated several times over the years. Great restaurant on US2 near the airport, still. Cater virtually everything in the columbia basin farms.

    Their sauce is a bit too sweet for my taste, but quality meats (ribs, turkey, beef and chicken) always come through. There's better around in my opinion, but for consistency of product and reliability, they're pretty hard to beat.

      I thought their chipotle sauce was pretty decent. Didn't really like their standard sauce ... a bit sweet, like you said. Is there better Q in WA? Yes ... at my house ;-)

        Longhorn BBQ is garbage. I've eaten at the Spokane restaurant on Hwy 2 several times and have left disappointed every time. There really isn't any "great" BBQ in the Pacific NW.

          ecowper I would give it a try just because Eric recommended it.

          Which location did you like Eric?

          Perhaps a bit of hyperbole. Too sweet? Yeah, for me. Does it compete with Texas BBQ...yeah, probably East Tejas stuff.. Or others..it's sweet enough to please a KCBS person. You're disappointed, so it's garbage, and therefore there's no great bbq in the Pac NW? Well, I've had mex in New England, and Salmon in Texas, and yeah, folks don't necessarily get it, but that don't make it garbage.

          I've eaten at the Longhorn on Rt 2 since the early 80's. In the 80's and early 90's it was very good. For the last 10-12 years, it has really gone downhill - maybe management, maybe a lot of roadwork kept folks away, or both. Whatever, I can't comment on the Auburn locale as never been there. Their place in Pioneer Sq. was decent, especially for a quick lunch, but it's been long gone.

          As for their sauce, yep it's too sweet for my taste, but my wife loves it. A few weeks back, I ordered some "You Know You Want It" sauce from Rabbit in Texas, and I gotta say it's hard to tell the diff between that and the Longhorn, except for the price.

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

          Placeholder

          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.

          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use.

          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.
