The Barbecue Chronicles: BBQ tour to the Brazos and beyond

Consensus is probably a mission impossible on a barbecue tour. Too many people. Too many sensibilities. And let’s face it, rib people are different than brisket people. The Barbecue Posse, though, almost reached consensus when we visited the Loco Coyote Grill near Glen Rose on a summer Saturday. It was part of a 9-hour, 210-mile barbecue tour that took us southwest of Dallas, to the Brazos and beyond. “Those ribs were the bomb,” R.J. Hinkle, a free-lance photographer making his first trip with the Posse, said of Loco Coyote. Another tour newcomer, Michael Gluckman, general manager at Fearing’s at The…

The RibShack, a little old place, where we can get together

The last stop on our recent Brazos & Beyond BBQ Tour was RibShack BBQ in Granbury. We had gotten several emails from readers urging us to visit the joint following several of our tour stories in The Dallas Morning News. Posse member Marshal Cooper observed, “The RibShack appeared to be a great BBQ haven from the outside, especially seeing a huge pit outside the front door.” The food we sampled was as good as the hospitality, We were greeted like old friends by Barbara Watts, who’s a dead ringer for Sarah Palin when she puts her glasses on. We visited…

The Hard Eight: Jewel’s favorite BBQ joint

The Hard Eight in Stephenville was our third stop on the Brazos & Beyond BBQ Tour. The posse was eleven strong as we rode into the town, described as “The Cowboy Capital of the World” by some folks. The posse was all over the board when it came to critiquing Hard Eight Barbecue. Some thought it was great, some average. However, on one issue we were all in agreement — the free beer on a hot day was great! Here are a few Texas BBQ Posse member observations on the Hard Eight, just named by singer Jewel in a People…

Loco Coyote Grill: We’ll be baaaack…

Our second stop on the recent Brazos and Beyond BBQ Tour was the Loco Coyote Grill, near Glen Rose. Posse member Tom Fox shares his take on this first class BBQ joint, as follows: “Pulling up at the Loco Coyote Grill in rural Glen Rose, one gets the all too familiar feel about the place. It wasn’t until I opened the car door and heard Waylon and Willie’s ‘Luckenbach, Texas ‘ playing on the outdoor speakers, I realized, that’s it. A Meat Joint. On that hot summer day the beer was ice cold in the bucket and the barbecue was…

Posse Favorites: BBQ Po Boy sandwich at Loco Coyote Grill

The Texas BBQ Posse’s collective mouths dropped open after seeing the Loco Coyote Griil’s BBQ Po Boy being delivered to a neighboring table during our Brazos and Beyond BBQ Tour last Saturday. The sandwich reminded us of a steroid version of another of our combo-meat favorites, Stanley’s Brother-in-Law sandwich in Tyler. The Brother-in-Law combines sausage, chopped brisket and cheese on a bun. Loco’s BBQ Po Boy may be the biggest sandwich I’ve ever seen. It combines chopped and sliced brisket with sausage on a massive hoagie bun, with your choice of onion rings or fries. The price is a cool…

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…

Brazos and Beyond BBQ Tour: The posse rides to Stephenville

Yesterday the Texas BBQ Posse headed southwest from Dallas on Hwy. 67 for our fifth BBQ tour in the past year. Leaving Dallas at 10am, we met up an hour later at Red Chew Chew BBQ & Grill in Cleburne. After a quick breakfast of brisket, chicken and sausage, we headed seven miles west of Glen Rose to the Loco Coyote, one of the best joints the posse has found over the past year of barbeque tours. We’ll be writing a tour story for The Dallas Morning News and individual blogs about each of our stops, but take note that…
