I would a whole lot rather you taste the flavor of the meat before you put anything on it. Taste the time and energy that went into it.

Big Country Tour


Big Os BBQ Crew2006 - Our 8th annual barbecue tour.  We operated on a 'skeleton' BBQ crew, which allowed us to cover a great deal of territory (Weatherford to Sweetwater to San Angelo to Stephenville). We drove more miles (790) and visited more joints (20 1/2) than ever before.


Here are some tour highlights, by the numbers:

North Carolina Tour


Tyler's Tap RoomOur 10th tour visited the birthplace of American Barbecue: North Carolina.  During our three-day tour, We hit 16 barbecue joints, and each night we found a minor league baseball game and tap room for relaxation. 


 Because our crew was small, we were able to cover a majority of the state, logging around 700 miles during the tour.  The barbecue was fantastic, and 4 joints placed into our all-time top ten list!  Yum.


Central Texas Remix Tour


We returned to Central Texas in 2007, after a seven year absence.  The Barbecue Crew had grown, and many had not experienced a comprehensive sweep of these fertile BBQ grounds.  We were again fortunate to visit some old favorites, while discovering a few new ones.  We hit 21 joints over the three days and ~ 600 miles.  It's good to be home again!

Kansas City Tour


BBQ Crew at SneadsThe 2005 Kansas City tour was our 7th, and our first out-of-state tour.  We chose Kansas City because of its reputation, and the high concentration of barbecue establishements.  Over the course of our three-day tour, we were able to experience the offerings of 20 local restaurants, along with several bars, pubs, and brewpubs -- while keeping auto travel  around 300 miles!




DFW Remix Tour


A time-shortened tour for a harried life.  This tour allowed us to revisit some old favorites and find some new ones... We hit 11 BBQ joints, plus the Fort Worth Stockyards in just two days of touring.
