About two-thirds of H-E-B’s 300 or so Texas grocery stores will begin selling Mark Gabrick’s line of sauces on Jan. 18. “I’m so excited, Gabrick said in a recent interview. “A little nervous, but excited!” Later, he added: “Will I be successful? I don’t know. I hope people like it. I’m thinking the situation with H-E-B was luck.” Luck or not, the journey has been a long one. When the Covid virus pandemic…

Central Texas BBQ Tour II day two: Breakfast at Snow’s

We left Taylor around 7:20am and headed east to the little town of Lexington, starting day two of our Central Texas 5-Star BBQ Tour II. The sun had just risen when we pulled in and parked next to the grain elevator across the street from Snow’s BBQ, one of the best BBQ joints in the universe. The line wasn’t too…

Central Texas BBQ Tour II day one: Nightcap at the Taylor Cafe

We capped off an amazing day on the BBQ trail with a visit to the historic Taylor Cafe. As usual, there was owner Vencil Mares sitting at the bar, the same place he’s been 7 days a week, from 6am to 10pm, since he bought the joint in 1948. We made a third stop of the day earlier at Southside…

The Barbecue Chronicles: BBQ tour to the Brazos and beyond

The Barbecue Posse, though, almost reached consensus when we visited the Loco Coyote Grill near Glen Rose on a summer Saturday. It was part of a 9-hour, 210-mile barbecue tour that took us…

Posse favorites: Chopped beef sandwich at Meshacks’s BBQ

The secret is now out about the little BBQ joint on Avenue B in old downtown Garland. Meshack’s Bar-B-Que Shack has gone from obscurity to stardom over the past year. Their chopped brisket sandwich, on the menu at a cool $2.75, may very well be the best BBQ bargain in the DFW area. You can also buy a pound of…

Visiting friends in East Texas- Pat Gee’s & Hickory Hill BBQ
