ssweeney's Review of Back Porch of Texas | "Show us your pits"

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.

ssweeney's Review of Back Porch of Texas

  • Sausage: Medium packed mix. Its flavorful, if somewhat greasy. The casing is a bit tough.
  • Beans: Standard pintos. Not too much going on here.
  • Potato Salad: Creamy... with lots of mayo. Good.
  • Sides: Cream corn is made with fresh corn that snaps. I also like the black pepper spice. Very nice!
  • Spare Rib: The meat pulls off the bone with a tug. They are using a very minimal rub (or no rub at all). Meat flavor has a 'funk' to it.
  • Brisket: Fatty slice is chunky, but chewy. Probably could have used a little more lovin' in the oven.
  • Brisket: Lean is smokey, with a good meat flavor. Nice balance.
  • Sauce: KC Masterpiece with extra liquid smoke.
  • Atmosphere: This is definitely nice, sit-down style restaurant... not a joint. They have table service & a full menu of varied food choices, including some BBQ.
