Let the Texas BBQ Posse eat cake, mom says, and we do

Customers line up on a Saturday morning at Truth Barbeque in Brenham, the Posse’s first stop of the trip. (Photo ©Michael Ainsworth/Texas BBQ Posse) At the first stop of the day on a barbecue tour, we almost never order dessert. Plenty of opportunity later for sweets, if we’re still hungry. And so it was at Truth Barbeque in Brenham on a recent Saturday morning. After tasting the joint’s beef rib, brisket, pork ribs, turkey and sausage, we confirmed that Truth deserved every bit of its recent Texas Monthly ranking among the Top 10 places in the state. “I can’t think we’re…

Posse favorites: Stanley’s Brother-in-Law sandwich

One of the great discoveries on our recent East Texas BBQ Tour was the brother-in-law sandwich at Stanley’s Famous Pit Bar-B-Q in Tyler, the first stop on our four-joint tour. Several of us went directly for the 4-meat sampler, no sides, as a way to quickly judge the long-time barbeque joint. Fortunately, a couple of our posse members ordered and…

Pat Gee’s: BBQ palace in the piney woods of East Texas

Pat Gee’s Barbecue is a few miles east of Tyler, nestled under towering pine trees near the small community of Chapel Hill. Dallas Morning News writer and Texas BBQ Posse founding member Gary Jacobson set the stage for the joint perfectly in his story, “The barbecue chronicles: One day, four pit stops in East Texas.” Gary writes, “The small, wood-frame…

The BBQ Queen critiques the Ft. Worth Tour

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…

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,…

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…

Ft. Worth tour begins at Off the Bone

Number one on D Magazine’s Best of DFW BBQ list. Quite a target for the Texas BBQ Posse. We peaked early and pulled in the parking lot at 10:30am. They opened at 11am, so we gravitated toward the smoker for some BBQ 101. We were greeted by pitmaster and owner Eddie Brown and peppered him with questions as he loaded…

Kreuz Market – The Real Deal…..

We arrived at Kreuz Market with some preconceptions, none of which were good. We heard along the BBQ trail that Kreuz was “overrated,” they were the Wal-Mart of BBQ due to their huge restaurant that resembled a honky tonk not unlike Billy Bob’s in Ft. Worth. As we walked through the swinging screen door with a cow and a pig…

Clark’s Outpost BBQ – A trip into horse country

Editor’s note: This joint is now closed. We loaded up the truck and headed north to Clark’s Outpost BBQ in Tioga on Saturday. We’d heard a lot about Clark’s and wanted to investigate, they’ve been featured in both Bon Appetit and Gourmet magazines. In the past I’ve been known to say, “The words barbeque and gourmet should never be used…
