Hot Links

BBQ has been in the news, especially with the beginning of summer coming around. Road trips are as popular as ever, and Jayne Clark shared her Texas BBQ Trail experience in USA Today over the weekend, while the Dallas Morning News crew took a DFW road trip inspired by this blog.

Some bad news came out of Kansas City a few months back when LC's was shut down by the health department. They're back up and running, while Burn's in Houston is still recovering from their shutdown. I hope they're back open by the time I get back to Houston for another 'cue tour.

The Oklahoman's own Dave Cathey continues to try an answer a question that I posed last year. Does Oklahoma have it's own BBQ identity?

Finally, Robb Walsh shares his harrowing experience of promising a BBQ Snob a kobe brisket, only to realize it wasn't a brisket at all. Thanks Robb and family for a great Memorial Day. We had a blast and the food was great.

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.
