BBQ in the News

Texas BBQ has been in quite a few news stories over the last month.

The Dallas Business Journal did a profile on Sadler's Smokehouse, which was a recent contestant in this blog's Vacuum Packed Brisket Battle.

The Dallas Morning News' food critic, Leslie Brenner, made her way down to Huntsville for some 'cue at New Zion Missionary Baptist Church a.k.a. The Church of the Holy Smoke. She loved the meat, and appreciated the value as well. did a video profile and a very positive review of BBQ Chop Shop in OKC.

Robb Walsh of the Houston Press christens Mustang Creek B-B-Q as the joint with the best brisket in the state. It's a long drive from here to Louise, Texas, but I'll make it a point to get there when I'm in the area.

Finally, a group from the Dallas Morning News used Full Custom Gospel BBQ as their guide for a trip to the mecca of BBQ, Central Texas. Read about their road trip here.

Robb Walsh has been pushing Mustang Creek for years. His previous post definitely put Mustang Creek's brisket and sausage sandwich on my to-do list though. Looks incredible.


Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
