The Best Barbecue in Dallas (Just Missed)

Hopefully by now you've read my list of the top 16 BBQ joints in the DFW area. If not, then check out the D Magazine article here, here and here. With any list, there are those that just missed the cut. I thought I'd use this space to share with you the joints that almost made the cut, in no particular order.

- Big Al's Smokehouse in Dallas

- Railhead Smokehouse in Fort Worth

- Mike Anderson's in Dallas

- Odom's in Dallas

- Back Country Bar-B-Q in Dallas

Each of these places is definitely one that I have either made repeat visits or plan to return to, so I thank all the pit masters for their great work.

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.
