Hosam Smadi - The BBQ'ing Terrorist

If you've heard the story of Hosam "Sam" Smadi, you know that he attempted to set off an explosion in Fountain Place in downtown Dallas. You may also have noticed that he worked at a small BBQ joint in Italy, Texas called Texas Best Smokehouse. Myself, Smokey D and SmokeMasterone took in a plate of smoked meat from this joint back in March, and we cannot confirm nor deny that Sam Smadi may have prepared our meal. If he did, then he'll need to work on his pit master skills in prison, because it wasn't that good.

Texas Best Smokehouse

A call to the TBS was answered, but the gentlemen I spoke with could not confirm which smoked meat Smadi preferred. If anyone has any information about this man's BBQ preferences, please inform the rest of us. He looks to me like he could use some mac & cheese right now.

Based on his failed attempt to blow up Fountain Place, I would say the first thing Smadi needs to learn about smoking BBQ is how to light a match.

His preferred meat probably isn't pork. I should change my name now...


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.
