Smoke Daddy's Review of Texas Barb-B-Q and Catering | "Show us your pits"

 BBQ is a taste memory. BBQ is a culture, not a concept. BBQ is friends, family & love.

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.

OTHER FARE:

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

ATMOSPHERE:

  • 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.
