Longoria’s definitely belongs on Texas Monthly’s new Top 50 list; not so Cousin’s

Meats sit on the smoker at Longoria’s BBQ in Everman. (Photo©Chris Wilkins/Texas BBQ Posse) Longoria’s BBQ in Everman turns out some pretty stout ribs, but the star of the menu is the brisket sausage, no doubt about it. “Brisket sausage, I don’t think life gets better than that,” Posse member Magda Michna Goncalves said during the final day of our “DFW Top 7 BBQ Tour” after she tasted Longoria’s specialty. To be proper, we should probably refer to Magda as Dr. Michna Goncalves. Among its members, the Posse numbers several JDs, and we just picked up a reverend, but Magda…

Posse visits Texas Monthly’s “DFW 7” top BBQ joints this week

After Texas Monthly announced their Top 50 BBQ list in mid-May, we thought one of the biggest surprises was the inclusion of seven DFW-area barbecue restaurants on the list. The last Texas Monthly list in 2008 had three places in DFW: Baker’s Ribs in Dallas, Cousin’s Barbecue in Ft. Worth and Big Daddy’s Roadhouse BBQ in Lavon. Cousin’s is the only holdover on the new list. As a group, we have been numerous times to Pecan Lodge, Lockhart Smokehouse, Longoria’s BBQ and Meshack’s Bar-B-Que Shack. However, we’ve never visited Bartley’s BBQ, Cousin’s Barbecue or Hutchins BBQ on a BBQ tour. Thus planning…

The Barbecue Chronicles: Fort Worth area has good barbecue, but it’s wise to space the tastings

On barbecue tours, it’s better to plan a break for the middle rather than the end. We learned that valuable lesson on a recent Saturday during a 100-mile, nine-hour excursion to four places in and around Fort Worth. Since the stops were close, all the eating was stuffed into five hours. Even our biggest eater, Gary Barber, couldn’t keep pace. Barber (a multimedia editor at The Dallas Morning News) ate a half-pound of sausage, a quarter-pound of brisket and two ribs at the first stop, Off the Bone in Forest Hill, at 11 a.m. By our last stop, Smokey’s Barbeque…

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…

Longoria’s BBQ: It’s like family

Longoria’s BBQ was ranked number three on D Magazine’s Best BBQ in DFW list. The Texas BBQ Posse pulled into the gravel lot in Everman and headed to the back of the building to check out the smoker area, of course. Pitmaster David Longoria invited us in to check out the place, not even knowing we were on tour. Have to say I took an immediate liking to this place. David showed us the finer points of his family’s cooking techniques, then gave us a VIP tour of his dad’s “James Dean Room” before heading to the small but comfortable…
