BBQ sauce king of Texas?

Mark Gabrick holds a bottle of his Texas Tang BBQ sauce (Photo courtesy of Mark Gabrick) Ready for some upbeat news in these troubled times? Here’s some. 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…

The RibShack, a little old place, where we can get together

The last stop on our recent Brazos & Beyond BBQ Tour was RibShack BBQ in Granbury. We had gotten several emails from readers urging us to visit the joint following several of our tour stories in The Dallas Morning News. Posse member Marshal Cooper observed, “The RibShack appeared to be a great BBQ haven from the outside, especially seeing a…

BBQ Signs of our times – Chapter 2

Our series of photos of great signs at BBQ joints continues. These photos are from our recent trips to Taylor, for the Taylor International BBQ Cookoff, and from the recent Brazos and Beyond BBQ Tour. As I’ve said before, nothing reveals the character of a good BBQ joint better than a great sign! The more homemade the sign, the more…

Lunch at Pecan Lodge: Is this the best brisket in Dallas?

Dallas is a city in desperate need of great barbeque. The chains are on every corner, but I’m talking GREAT barbeque. You have Meshack’s, oops, that’s in Garland. What about Randy’s BBQ? That’s in Red Oak, doesn’t count. Fort Worth had some great joints, but that ain’t Dallas either. It’s been pretty lonely for the Baby Back Shak over the…

The Hard Eight: Jewel’s favorite BBQ joint

The Hard Eight in Stephenville was our third stop on the Brazos & Beyond BBQ Tour. The posse was eleven strong as we rode into the town, described as “The Cowboy Capital of the World” by some folks. The posse was all over the board when it came to critiquing Hard Eight Barbecue. Some thought it was great, some average.…

Loco Coyote Grill: We’ll be baaaack…

Sunday morning at the Taylor Cafe

One of the highlights of our weekend trip to Taylor was meeting Vencil Mares on Sunday morning at the Taylor Cafe, which he has owned and operated since 1949. After two straight days of nothing but BBQ, we had skipped a planned stop there on Saturday night when the wives refused to go, forcing Gary and I to eat healthy…

Fear & Loathing at the Taylor International Barbeque Cookoff

We had an absolutely amazing weekend starting Friday night in Taylor, Texas. The primary purpose of the trip was to attend the Taylor International Barbeque Cookoff on Saturday, but the weekend began on Friday night with a dinner visit at Louie Mueler Barbecue followed by wine, cigars and great music on the back deck at the Talbot Street Bed &…

BBQ bloggers gather at Louie Mueller Barbecue

We had a really cool experience this morning meeting other BBQ bloggers from around the state. Thanks to the BBQ Snob, Daniel Vaughn, for getting everyone together for a smoked meat breakfast at Louie Mueller Barbecue, one of the Posse’s favorite joints in the world. Most of us were in town for the Taylor International Barbeque Cookoff. Gary Jacobson and…

Posse Favorites: BBQ Po Boy sandwich at Loco Coyote Grill

The Texas BBQ Posse’s collective mouths dropped open after seeing the Loco Coyote Grill’s BBQ Po Boy being delivered to a neighboring table during our Brazos and Beyond BBQ Tour last Saturday. The sandwich reminded us of a steroid version of another of our combo-meat favorites, Stanley’s Brother-in-Law sandwich in Tyler. The Brother-in-Law combines sausage, chopped brisket and cheese on…

The BBQ Posse goes plaid

“You’re not wearing that?” Bruce Tomaso’s wife, Patty, asked him as he left his house for our recent barbecue tour to Cleburne, Glen Rose, Stephenville and Granbury. It wasn’t really a question, but Bruce treated it as a question. He told her that he thought he looked fine. The Dallas Morning News editor wore plaid shorts and a plaid shirt,…
