There's an idyllic BBQ location along the ighway in Glen Rose called The Ranch House. There are huge shade trees surrounding this quaint wooden building with a deep dining porch along the front of the place. On my first trip, the brisket arrived sauced, so I was sure to order sauce on the side on the second visit. The brisket was moist and tender with a decent crust and slight smoke line. The flavor was good, but lacked smoke. The spare ribs were large with a smoky crust and deep flavor throughout. A heavy rub also gave it a bit of a sweet flavor. The only negative was that they were slightly dry, so I added a little of that sauce to remedy it. The thick spicy sauce was excellent, and even better on the side.
