Good Brisket

This bbq is great. Okra is heavenly. Every meat is fantastic. Sauce is good though totally unnecessary. Best bbq I've had in Dallas.

well worth the short wait of 20-25 mins. had the Trinity. the sausage is super flavorful course ground pork good amount of pepper. the rib was smokey smokey, moist but didn't slide off the bone. no problem though, it was delicious. the fatty brisket was like eating butter and the lean was moist. one section was tough to chew. probably from sitting on a warming pan. sauce is vinegar based and compliments the meat well. and the home made slaw is killer

Very good fatty brisket. The rest? Meh.

Had the brisket and pork ribs and must I say it was taking a bite into bbq bliss. Had no problem just drowning the brisket in bbq sauce while yet enjoying the texture and original flavor of the brisket. With a side of okra I can't say it's anything less than short of spectacular

Shed #2 at the Dallas Farmers Market is a vast, enclosed, and fully air-conditioned structure that essentially serves as a city-owned food court where up-and-coming restaurateurs crowd in to show off their skills. The unquestioned anchor tenant of this gastro-carnival is Pecan Lodge, a three-year-old barbecue joint producing what is the best smoked meat in North Texas. It’s easy to find because their counter is just inside the front door, and also because a line…

You may have heard that this joint is getting a bit popular. While I may lament not being able to visit my go-to barbecue joint without braving a long line, I’m happy for the proprietors. Justin and Diane Fourton are friends in the barbecue world, and I’ve sought some bit of smoking advice from Justin on what were once biweekly visits. During those many visits I watched their menu evolve and sampled just about every…

After a nearly two-month hiatus (that felt like years to some barbecue fanatics) Pecan Lodge is back up and running. Justin and Diane Fourton have a wide menu of Southern food favorites so they weren’t exactly closed, but there’s no doubt that a celebration was warranted. A banner exclaiming “BBQ is Back” was hoisted over the counter, and two new items were chalked up on the menu. While I was there to try the new…
