The Posse heading to Oak Cliff for the Blues, Bandits and BBQ Competition

Come by and say hi to the Texas BBQ Posse cook team on Saturday and Sunday at the first annual Blues, Bandits and BBQ Sustainable BBQ Competition in Oak Cliff. Sustainable means organic, or grass fed, meaning you don’t have near as much fat to help flavor and smoke your brisket or ribs. This should be interesting! Lead cook Marshall Cooper and others on the competition team have had several test cooks trying to perfect our organic meat smoking technique for our first BBQ cook off. Come on by the OC and look for the posse banner flying proudly. This…

BBQ Signs of our times – Chapter 2

Our series of photos of great signs at BBQ joints continues. These photos are from our recent trips to Taylor, for the Taylor International BBQ Cookoff, and from the recent Brazos and Beyond BBQ Tour. As I’ve said before, nothing reveals the character of a good BBQ joint better than a great sign! The more homemade the sign, the more remarkable your dining adventure will likely be.

BBQ bloggers gather at Louie Mueller Barbecue

We had a really cool experience this morning meeting other BBQ bloggers from around the state. Thanks to the BBQ Snob, Daniel Vaughn, for getting everyone together for a smoked meat breakfast at Louie Mueller Barbecue, one of the Posse’s favorite joints in the world. Most of us were in town for the Taylor International Barbeque Cookoff. Gary Jacobson and I represented the Texas BBQ Posse. In addition to Daniel, bloggers from Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston, Austin and Euless were represented. The highlight was trying some BBQ ice cream after our breakfast. The taste was interesting, to say the least!…

The BBQ Posse goes plaid

“You’re not wearing that?” Bruce Tomaso’s wife, Patty, asked him as he left his house for our recent barbecue tour to Cleburne, Glen Rose, Stephenville and Granbury. It wasn’t really a question, but Bruce treated it as a question. He told her that he thought he looked fine. The Dallas Morning News editor wore plaid shorts and a plaid shirt, accessorized by a plaid hat, plaid slip-on canvas shoes and white booty socks. Mighty fine. When he got home, after nine hours and four eating stops with his Posse mates, Patty asked Bruce what the rest of us thought about…

Gary Jacobson hits the airwaves with Mr. BBQ

Listen in as Texas BBQ Posse founding member and Dallas Morning News writer Gary Jacobson talks smoked meats with Mr. BBQ, a syndicated radio show out of Portland, Oregon.

BBQ Signs of our times

You can always get an idea of the character of a BBQ joint by the sign out front. The more down home the sign, the more amazing your meal will likely be. Here are some signs from our recent North Texas BBQ Tour. Also a couple from posse member Irwin Thompson, shot as he drove though east Texas last week.

lambfries

A little posse peer pressure

As an appetizer at Clark’s Outpost in Tioga, the Barbecue Posse ordered lamb fries and passed them around. There were some snickers. Lamb fries are lamb testicles, breaded and fried. “I’m not eating those,” said David Woo, a barbecue posse veteran and Dallas Morning News photographer. Peer pressure, though, is a powerful force. Don’t be chicken, the posse told Woo. Everyone else had eaten at least one. He must, too. Woo grabbed a lamb fry and popped it in his mouth. “Wow! Nasty!” he said. “Take two, they go in pairs,” posse newcomer Bruce Tomaso said. But one and done…

The G Man comes up short again

Gary Barber, the Texas BBQ Posse’s biggest eater, caught flak during the Marshall Cooper BBQ fest for once again coming up short in the end. Gary, aka G, started building his legend on our first BBQ tour to central Texas, as described by Dallas Morning News writer and posse founding member Gary Jacobson. “Think of the fullest you have ever been at a Thanksgiving meal, then multiply by two,” Barber said, after eating five more-than-full meals in 24 hours. After a strong performance again on the East Texas BBQ tour, Gary B. faded during the Fort Worth BBW Tour, where…

Woe is Woo on Fort Worth tour

Regular readers of our barbecue chronicles will remember David Woo, pictured below, the great wheelman on our East Texas tour in February. Newspapers and websites across the country picked up the story, which lauded him, and his GPS, for helping us navigate rural roads. On our Fort Worth Tour in April, however, Woo’s GPS failed him. He followed its instructions to the letter and wound up trapped in the middle of the packed Downtown Arts Festival. Some of us, by luck, detoured around downtown. “I forgot about the festival,” Woo said as he, and those in a couple other tour…

The BBQ Queen critiques the Ft. Worth Tour

Posse member Ahna Hubnik doesn’t beat around the bush when if comes to barbeque. A country girl from Snook, Texas, she was brought up on ribs, brisket and sausage. Here’s the uncensored view of the Ft. Worth BBQ Tour by our Texas BBQ Posse Queen, pictured at below right with husband Gary. “Sadly I wasn’t very impressed with the beef at any of the stops. It’s “cowtown” for crying out loud. I guess everyone stopped trying when they perfected the ribeye. Now the pork ribs, I can see they are giving a full effort. None were dry or overcooked. I…

View from a BBQ Posse newcomer

Suzi Woo, wife of Texas BBQ Posse wheelman David Woo, accompanied us on the first stop on our recent Ft. Worth BBQ Tour. She brought a unique perspective to the tour and shared it with our resident writer Gary Jacobson. Read below to see Suzi’s thoughts on her first trip to Off the Bone BBQ. She’s pictured above, center, as the posse interviews pitmaster and owner Eddie Brown during our tour stop. “David has asked me to send my comments on my maiden voyage with the BBQ Posse. While I am unable to make much of a comparison with earlier…

DANIEL

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. He has a great website, the Full Custom Gospel BBQ blog, reviewing Texas BBQ joints. We had already started following his blog when fellow posse member David Woo and I had a chance to have lunch with Daniel at The Baby Back Shak. The Dallas Morning News was doing a story on the phenomenal success of his blog. David and I ate ribs and talked que with Daniel, then David shot photos…
