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.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Texas Barb-B-Q and Catering

<<Update: this place was bought out by Tumbleweed BBQ in 2006.>>

My favorite items were the beans, followed by the ribs & brisket, with the jalapeno sausage not far behind.  This roadside barbecue stand is producing some solid product.

Texas BarBQ SpreadMAIN FARE:

  • Brisket - Moist & tender.  Good smoke ring and flavor.  Falls (or flakes) apart into large chunks.  Very good.
  • Rib - Rich & tender, with a good spice on the finish. I could easily overdo it here!  Texture is a bit mushy, since it has been held a while.  Very good.
  • Sausage - commercial product I'm calling "Eckrich-like".
  • Jalapeno Sausage - Good sausage!  Jalapeno + cayenne gives a good kick.
  • Pork Loin - Different spice profile than the brisket.  A little chewy.


  • Beans - These rock!  Good spices and textures here.
  • Potato Salad - Standard mustard-based variety. Good.
  • Sauce - Tomato-based, translucent, and tangy.


  • Road-side bbq stand; Good drive-up appeal
  • To-go business; No dining room
  • We visit at the end of a long day, and the pit man is too tired to tour/talk
  • Dad was former pitmaster at Hard Eight
  • Solid stop.
