Great BBQ worth the drive. The ribs are excellent and the brisket is pretty good. Blue Moon has some of the best sides you'll find in any BBQ Joint

Nicely done fatty brisket. Good ribs.

Almost a year later and I'm still convinced Blue Moon is a "great" BBQ joint. Ron and Toni are still delving out delicious and creative BBQ dishes. The lean brisket was well rendered

Rick Moon is smoking with post oak. Good fatty brisket, but the lean stuff is dry. Great ribs and pork loin. Don't miss the stuffed poppers on Saturday that sometimes last until Sunday.

The ribs from Blue Moon must be experienced and is the new benchmark for excellence! Lean, moist, and wonderfully smoked, with a peppery finish, they are absolutely the best! Move over Louie Mueller, Kruez, Smitty's and City Market, there's a new sheriff in town. Rick and Toni Moon have it down pat. Great Q!

Once in a "blue moon" you find a treasure. Blue Moon BBQ is just that. While the place can be overlooked if not looking,it serves top quality BBQ. Rick and Toni Moon. Traveling the state I try to not only to make the top 50 BBQ joints, I look for those not so well known. The brisket was perfection, nicely crusted and a beauti pink smoke ring. It was lean, yet moist and full of Post Oak wood smoke flavor. Heavenly! The prime rib sandwich was a joy and came with sides of au jus and creamed horseradish. Delicious! I'm traveling to Dallas with ribs for the wife and can hardly wait to try them. Believe me, you want to make this a destination as many Aggie tailgaters do. Blue Moon is a "5".

Before I was Barbecue Editor for Texas Monthly for nearly three years, I maintained my own blog, Full Custom Gospel BBQ, and one the last reviews I wrote was for Blue Moon BBQ. The first visit was a good one, and I’ve tried a few follow-ups that were thwarted by my own poor research into their hours. Admittedly, as time passed and countless new barbecue joint opened across the state, Blue Moon was pushed further and further down my to-do list….
