I think it's fair to say Texas has more variations in its barbecue styles than any other state. And more disagreements about them.

Legends of Texas Barbecue

crosen's Review of Carls Barbecue

Joint: 
  • Overall: Meat quality was all over the place. Lots of sweetness used in the rubs. Inside had a great Texas feel.
  • Coleslaw: Grocery bought stuff.
  • Beans: Hearty, meaty, beany goodness.
  • Potato Salad: More grocery bought stuff.
  • Atmosphere: Small shack on the outskirts of town. Looks good from outside. Big Texas atmosphere inside. Big elk inside is cool.
  • Brisket: Smoky, Propane gas taste, Pure Ass, choked all the way down, Yuck!
    Can you tell I didn't like it???
  • Spare Rib: Sweet rub, tender, little fatty.
  • Pork: Sweet, tender goodness thru & thru!!!
  • Sausage: Mild sausage had a funky, nasty taste to it.
  • Hot Link: Jalapeno hot and a hint of sweet. I liked it!
  • Sauce: Semi-sweet thick sauce. It was decent.
