Behold the Fried Rib from Pecan Lodge — You need to try one

The fried rib from Pecan Lodge in Dallas. (Photo by Jim Rossman/Texas BBQ Posse) It’s not often that I’m surprised by the menu at a BBQ joint. I’ve been to more than a few dozen places and didn’t think there was much else you could do to a pork rib, but I was wrong. One day last month I was eating at Pecan Lodge in Dallas when I spied a new entry on their menu board. It was a fried pork rib and I had to have one. The rib was a very large and meaty. It was lightly battered and…

Ten 50 BBQ in Richardson shows promise in first week, but Franklin, it’s not…

Large pallets of wood wait their turn in the smoker  (Photos by Jim Rossman) After an extensive remodel of a K&G Men’s Wear on north Central Expressway in Richardson, Ten 50 BBQ, owned by Chili’s founder Larry Lavine, finally opened this week to long lines and daily sellouts around 2:30p.m. each day. I watched a few accounts of Monday’s opening day, including a good writeup by Kellie Reynolds in the Dallas Observer. It was a quote in her story that caught my attention. “Franklin’s in Austin is the gold standard and we think we’ve matched that,” Levine told Reynolds. “We’ve…

Baby Back Shak has a new look, same great food

Posse photo by Jim Rossman Posse member Irwin Thompson alerted us to a remodel at the Baby Back Shak, a longtime Posse favorite joint. We’ve always loved the ribs and boudin, along with the turkey and even the Shak beans, but the building, which was totally void of windows, was always very dark and the decor was mid-70s with faded sports photos on the walls. The way a place looks has never stopped us from enjoying Clarence Cohens great food, but I have to say, the changes — especially the new front door and wall of windows — makes a…

New Dallas Joint: CattleAck BBQ

From left: Todd David, David Mills, Misty David and Lauren Parajon (all photos by Jim Rossman)  In the wake of the Texas Monthly Top 50 list which was released this week, there’s been an abnormal amount of BBQ chatter on Twitter. It was in a Tweet I saw mention of CattleAck BBQ in Dallas. I was intrigued, as I’ve at least heard of most joints in Dallas and this one was under my radar. A jump to their Twitter feed @cattleackbbq led me to their website www.cattleackbbq.com. What I found was a BBQ catering business that four weeks ago started opening…

First Look: The Slow Bone Barbeque in Dallas

All photos by Jim Rossman It’s a great day when I get to eat at a new place. Today, Jack Perkins, owner of local burger joint Maple and Motor, opened the doors to The Slow Bone Barbeque, his new barbecue restaurant at 2234 Irving Blvd. at the base of the new Sylvan Ave. bridge near the Design District in Dallas. Jack won the brisket competition at last year’s Meat Fight and announced his plans to open Slow Bone late last year. Well, today was the day. I was tenth in line when the doors opened this morning and the line…

Lockhart Smokehouse owner wants to add another pit to keep up with demand at his Oak Cliff joint

Our Shiner Platter lunch at Lockhart Smokehouse. Yes, it was a good as it looks. (Photo ©Chris Wilkins) During an anything-but-light lunch Thursday at Lockhart Smokehouse in Dallas, owner Jeff Bergus said business has been so strong — up more than 25 percent this year — that he’s thinking of adding a second pit to the big Bewley that the joint has used since opening in early 2011. Where would it go? Bergus said he wasn’t sure, but pointed out that there is a small, vacant storefront adjacent to the back of his place, which would be one possibility. Lockhart…

Can you keep a secret? Clyde Biggins looks to expand his underground BBQ operation in West Dallas

(Photo ©Chris Wilkins/Texas BBQ Posse) At Clyde’s Rolling Bar-B-Que — a trailer on Westmoreland Road in West Dallas open two days a week and soon to be three — there’s as much nostalgia on the menu as smoked meat. “Is that Clyde?” an elderly man said as he stopped his big pickup truck beside Clyde Biggins’ barbecue pit last Saturday afternoon. “It’s Clyde,” Clyde said. “Do you know me?” the man in the pickup said. They talked for several minutes, recalling when, two decades ago, Clyde ran a popular barbecue joint a couple…
