Just like Moses and his people wandered the desert, I've been traveling the back roads of this country on my own journey to the Barbecue Promised Land.  I'd have taken better notes had I known I'd be writing a book.

dbarrow's Review of Railhead Smokehouse

  • Atmosphere: College hang out – cheap beer served in large schooners, very cold and a nice bar area. Lots of wood. Like the Coors Light sign with the longhorn blowing smoke out of his nostrils. Picture of Byron Nelson with Ben Hogan is a nice golf touch. Big Dogs Porch, State of Texas done in cow hide. Slim Pickens Choice Alfalfa Cubes. New building, with a clean exterior.
  • Brisket: Not cut the way I want, but otherwise no complaints, excellent.
  • Spare Rib: Excellent flavor and texture, this is the definition of a quality rib.
  • Sausage: Medium tough casing with an OK flavor.
