Great brisket and mac & cheese
David Monasmith @ Schmidt Family Barbecue, 2017-01-19 19:18:20
Came here for lunch. Was buzzing. Post oak smell was great. I could not decide between the beef rib or moist brisket. I asked for sample of brisket and it was fabulous. Great smoke flavor. Peppery crusty shell on the edge. Melted in mouth. So I got 1/4lb of what I thought was moist. I also got 1/4 chicken. Side of Cole slaw. They have a number of condiments such as sliced carrots, very spicy pickle slices and pickled onions. They also have a bunch of different sauces and salsa for BBQ tacos. There is a coffee bourbon BBQ sauce I tried but it was terrible. Tasted more like peanut butter than coffee or bourbon. The carrots and pickles were great. Onto brisket. I think he cut this brisket from the lean as it was NOWHERE near taste of the sample. Lean had good pepper flavor and smoke but was dry and slightly chewy. On one of the pieces I thought I just ate a piece of smoldering wood it was so potent but in the bitter burnt way. Anyway, if I was to rate the sample I was given, that was a 4.5 out of 5. For what I was given, it was a 2.5 out of 5 and at $19.50/lb, it all better be good. The chicken was a different story. Moist and smoky and full of flavor. I would say in top 5 of the ones I have had in my travels. That's a 4.5 out of 5. If it had some other help from rosemary or other herbs to give it that extra dimension, it would be a 5. Onto the Cole slaw. It was inedible. Yes had crunch, yes it had all the ingredients one would find in Cole slaw but the taste was non-existent. No sweet taste, no vinegar taste, no mustard taste. Just bland bland bland. 0 out 5 for this side dish. Overall I give a 3 out 5. If the brisket had been as advertised and I excluded the coleslaw, I would have given a 4 or even a 4.25 but I can only grade on what I was given. So if come here, watch what they give you and make sure it is from a piece you approve.

Tasted the brisket but it was very Chewy and I figured as much once I saw the lady cutting it having a hard time getting knife through it. Looking at the fat marble left between all the brisket meat, I would have to say it was not smoked long enough to render the fat and soften it. Decided to get the chicken lunch plate which is half chicken and 3 sides. Super cheap at $10. The chicken looked fabulous on the plate with crisp skin but it was over cooked, ie dry. Taste wise it was very good. It just lacked the moisture. Maybe if I came earlier in day it would have been better but one of the better tasting chickens I have had. The Cole slaw was great. It was thin strips of cabbage in vinegar sauce. Great flavor. The cucumber salad was quite good as well but too much sour cream sauce. The French. Fries are crinkle cut type and smelled fabulous. Good and crunchy. Overall 3 out 5 for meats and 5 out 5 for sides. 3 out 5 for overall.

Brisket Torta and beans were excellent

Just had some cherry pie. I usually like sweet and this was slightly tart at first but after a couple of chews it turns faintly sweet and is wonderful. The cherries are not too big and are tender but not turned to mush. The crust was amazing too. I will be back.
