Lunch at Pecan Lodge: Is this the best brisket in Dallas?

Dallas is a city in desperate need of great barbeque. The chains are on every corner, but I’m talking GREAT barbeque. You have Meshack’s, oops, that’s in Garland. What about Randy’s BBQ? That’s in Red Oak, doesn’t count. Fort Worth had some great joints, but that ain’t Dallas either. It’s been pretty lonely for the Baby Back Shak over the past few years, reigning as the best joint in Dallas. Enter Pecan Lodge at the Dallas Farmer’s Market. Once again, Daniel Vaughn and his Full Custom Gospel BBQ blog blazes the trail when it comes to new and upcoming BBQ…

Posse favorites: Boudin at the Baby Back Shak

Decisions, decisions, decisions. I always struggle with what meat to order at the Baby Back Shak. Their baby back ribs are the best is Dallas, bar none. The smoked chicken is among the best I’ve ever tasted and the other meats follow in this tradition of excellence. We’ve written several times over the past year about the Shak, the unofficial headquarters of the Texas BBQ Posse. What I’ve neglected to mention is their boudin, one of the best and most unusual sides, or Shaksessories, you can get at a Texas BBQ joint. By definition, boudin is a Cajun sausage stuffed…

Posse favorites: Frito Pie at Mac’s Bar-B-Que

Between our weekly trips to the Baby Back Shak, the Texas BBQ Posse has been heading just east of Deep Ellum to Mac’s Bar-B-Que, 3933 Main St. in Dallas. For some strange reason, really good barbeque isn’t always easy to find in Big D, but Mac’s delivers consistently well-cooked meats and good sides from their lunch menu. Speaking of sides, the french fries cooked in soybean oil have to be among the best in DFW. Several of us have become addicted to Mac’s Frito Pie, a dish not offered at most BBQ joints. They start with a layer of ranch-style…

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…

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.
