Coming soon: Tales from the East Texas BBQ Tour

A couple of weeks ago, the Texas BBQ Posse headed to east Texas in search of the best BBQ in the area. Posse founding member Gary Jacobson will once again be writing a story on the road trip for The Dallas Morning News, but you can click here for a sneak peek at the slideshow from our journey to the piney woods. We’ll let you know when the story is published in two weeks or so. The posse was made up of three of our members from the central Texas tour and five newbies. My dad James Wilkins, a Tyler…

Speaking of BBQ and Shacks

Another great BBQ joint in the Dallas area is Meshack’s Bar-B-Que Shack in Garland, some of the best brisket you’ll find north of Snow’s BBQ in Lexington, Texas. Meshack’s opened in May 2009 in a small building east of old downtown Garland. It was discovered by Daniel Vaughn, the BBQ Snob, later in August and the rest is history. Daniel blogged about Meshack’s on his Full Custom Gospel BBQ blog, assigning it his first 4-star ranking in the Dallas area, outside of a few in Ft. Worth. He recently ranked DFW BBQ joints for D Magazine, in his story titled…

A shout out to the BBQ Snob

For guidance and inspiration along the BBQ trail, the Texas BBQ Posse has turned many times to Daniel Vaughn, aka the BBQ Snob. Daniel is a local architect.

Support your local Shak

Despite what you might read in D Magazine, the best BBQ in the city of Dallas is located at 1800 South Akard St. Just a mile south of City Hall, it’s worth the trip any time to enjoy pitmaster and owner Clarence Cohen’s masterfully prepared ribs and other meats at the Baby Back Shak. The ribs are the best we’ve had in Dallas, bar none. Clarence also offers great sides, including his green beans (reminds me of my grandma’s) and the infamous Shak beans, some of the best BBQ beans you’ll ever have.

The Barbecue Chronicles: Our first journey to Central Texas

In thick fog on a Saturday morning, we missed the turn for Lexington. We quickly doubled back and arrived at Snow’s BBQ a little after 8 a.m., relieved to see only a short line. A half-hour earlier, when we left our motel, none of us felt hungry. But the smell of wood smoke changed our minds. We ordered thick slices of tender brisket on white bread. “That’s the best breakfast I’ve ever eaten,” said Chris Wilkins. “I could have gone home at that point and the trip would have been worth it,” said Gary Barber. Our lightning tour of the…
