Editor's note: this joint is now closed.

Clark's Outpost BBQ in Tioga offers a unique side dish to go with your ribs and brisket. And no, we aren't talking about their world-famous lamb fries, aka the cowboy's favorite.

We took a road trip to Clark's last month, to do our posse duty of sampling various smoked meats while passing on the sides. Our waitress mentioned we should try their french fried corn on the cob, it was something special. We gave up without a fight and ordered one each.

The deep-fried corn cob arrives at your table warm and covered with butter. It has the texture of perfectly grilled corn but melts in your mouth. I'm pretty sure it's the best corn on the cob I've ever tasted.

We're planning a small tour of north Texas joints next month, starting at Clark's. The "no sides" BBQ tour rule will have to be tossed aside so everyone can sample a true Posse favorite.

Clark's Outpost BBQ, 101 Hwy. 377 at Gene Autry Drive, Tioga, Texas. Open Mon-Thurs 11 am- 9 pm, Fri-Sat 11 am-9:30 pm, Sun 11 am-8:30 pm.
