BBQ in the News


Hanna Raskin at the Observer learns that Momma Raye's BBQ, which has been operating out of a mobile smoker (early FCGBBQ review here), will be putting down roots in Deep Ellum. Thanks to SmokeMasterOne for having a good eye, and to Hanna for the shout out!

Craig 'Meathead' Goldwyn of AmazingRibs.com has two great articles out there on the interweb. First is a taxonomy of regional BBQ sauces, and the second is a primer on pork rib cuts. Both of these are concise explanations of somewhat common knowledge items for BBQ fanatics, but they provide a good introduction for the novice.

D Magazine names their top BBQ joint in Dallas. Taking home the cake is a very deserving Meshack's, while the readers select Sonny Bryan's...again.

Also in the same D issue is a good explanation about why we don't have more mobile food trucks. If you guessed code officials, then you're correct. I guess we won't be seeing any good mobile smokehouses anytime soon.

And finally, the Observer has no love for a new local joint in west Arlington called Tollie's. I'll be independently verifying their story this weekend.

LOL

DISCLAIMER:

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.
