I Went to Texas and had BBQ at…Pecan Lodge - Dallas

One of the highest rated Dallas BBQ joints by Texas Monthly (4.8/5), this place did not disappoint. We ordered a half pound of all the meets available that day: brisket, pork ribs, sausage and the special for the day, burnt ends. Everything was amazing. The fatty brisket has an accretive smokiness (all the bbq here did, actually) and was amazingly juicy and tender. The sausage was tender and had a good snap (although not quite as snappy of what I’ve had in Lockhart). The pork ribs were moist and tender. Solid. But I really which I could have tried the beef ribs, which as what they’re known for. The beef ribs were only available as part of “The Trough”, which was way too much food for two. And last, but not least, the burnt ends were tender, juicy and smokey. I loved how you could flake the meat - it was that tender. We also gave their banana pudding a try and that was great too. So, it was worth the wait and the Q is spectacular. Drop by the next time you’re in Dallas!

I Went to Texas and had BBQ at…Cousin’s BBQ - Fort Worth

Another on Texas Monthly’s Top 50 list. This is the original Cousin’s location on McCart Avenue in Fort Worth. Delicious fatty brisket - moist, tender and smokey. The ribs and links were solid as well. The buttered and toasted bread was a surprise highlight. Just slightly crispy exterior from the toasting and the perfect billowy interior.
