Franklin Barbecue targets first week of November for re-opening

Smokers sit in the burned out smokehouse of Austin’s Franklin Barbecue in early October. (Photo ©Gary Jacobson/Texas BBQ Posse) Call it serendipity. I stopped by Franklin Barbecue near downtown Austin this morning just to check on rebuilding progress since an August fire closed the place. And there was Aaron Franklin, red socks and all, talking barbecue to a couple in a big SUV. “They’re from Wisconsin,” Franklin told me, smiling, after he had finished. Yes, the most famous pit master in the world, even in the midst of major reconstruction, still makes time for his fans. The news from this…

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…

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…

Historic Smitty’s Market

We arrived in downtown Lockhart and stumbled out of the car for an afternoon snack, meat drunk but ready for more BBQ. This was our third stop on the Central Texas BBQ Tour. We entered the screen door with a sign proclaiming “BARBEQUE” over it and walked down the long corridor into something out of the1890’s. Smitty’s Market was established…

Unexpected stop on the East Texas BBQ Tour

We spotted the smoke while cruising eastward down Hwy. 31 toward the Country Tavern in Kilgore. Since we were in no particular hurry, the BBQ posse hooked a u-turn and headed back to Hickory Hill BBQ. It turned out to be a great stop on the journey. Like Pat Gee’s, they are open Friday through Sunday, closing when the meat…
