The Latest Texas Monthly BBQ List

Here's the article

 

Note this is just a list of the best new or most improved places since the last Top 50 List.  Several commenters didn't understand that and bemoaned some longtime revered places not being listed.  Well you can't actually expect people to read the title or the introductory paragraphs now, can you?

 

The barbecue scene in Texas has been mushrooming for almost a decade.  Lots of new places are opening up, especially in Austin and here in Houston, and, apparently, other places are upping their game.  So it's no longer adequate, TM reasons, just to publish a Top 50 once every 5 years.

 

There are 5 in Austin, only one of which, Terry Black's, have I heard any mention of, and that was just an announcement that it was planned.  Terry Black is related in someway to Edgar Black of Black's in Lockhart.

 

There are four in Houston (Killen's in Pearland counts as Houston to everybody here). 

 

Most of these places will probably not make the next Top 50.  Virtually everyone here expects Killen's to not only make the Top 50 but crack the Top 5.  Ronnie Killen expects to unseat Aaron Franklin as the reigning king of Texas barbecue.  We'll see about that.

Yeah, those comments were hilarious.  No need to bother actually reading the article, much less making an effort to understand it.

 

I've not been to any of the new Houston locations listed.  Must make that effort.  After all, if I'm willing to drive several hours to make a round trip to Luling/Lockhart (and I am), surely 45 minutes into downtown Houston would be workable.

 

Thanks Bruce.

I don't understand why rappers have to hunch over while they stomp around the stage hollering.  It hurts my back to watch them. On the other hand, I've been thinking that perhaps I should start a rap group here at the Old Folks' Home.  Most of us already walk like that.

I'm going to check with my bbq judging buddies about the places listed around the DFW and Abilene.  I have heard no talk about any of those places  

It is good to be a BBQ Judge.  And now it is even gooder to be a Steak Cookoff Association Judge.  Life just got even better.  Woo Hoo!!!
