Smoke is mysterious, fire is uncertain, and pit men are expensive. So the mystery, uncertainty, and expense of taking the chance to make great barbecue is being replaced by the quantifiable methods of always making pretty good 'cue.

crosen's Review of Goode Co Barbeque

  • Dessert: Pecan pie still is the best in Texas!!!
  • Atmosphere: Big Stack of Pecan wood out front. Very busy lunch crowd. I-10W location may have been a better choice for room and atmosphere.
    We sat outside on the benches in the heat.
  • Brisket: Very dry, bitter smoke taste today. I have had much better before.
  • Sausage: Funky taste
  • Hot Link: Jalapeno sausage. Really bad today. Funky taste. Measures well on the ASS meter.
  • Pork: Bland, tender, dry, not spicy
  • Sauce: Sweet peppery sauce. Good.
  • Sides: Austin Beans - Nice flavor mixed with vegetables.
  • Coleslaw: Nice carrot, cabbage mix.
  • Spare Rib: Funky smoke taste today. Goode Company let me down today.
  • Beans: Pinto beans were quite spicy.
  • Potato Salad: Mustard & Mayo mix. Very tasty.
