Default On my way to Texas!

Looks like I will be in TX next week for work. Starting off in San Antonio, working up to Waco, then Arlington, then Grapevine, leaving out of DFW.

I am up for BBQ reccomendations anywhere along that journey, and am bringing a cooler just in case there is a Brisket sale going on that week.

In Grapevine: i recommend hard eight bbq - stay away from the sauce. The brisket, ribs and sausage good. If you lucky, bacon wrapped shrimp.

Only thing semi decent bbq in Arlington is Rudy's bbq, just the brisket is decent there, and the jalapeno sausage. They might have smoked tenderloin (nice)

If you want a hooters style view (and not offended), Bone Daddy's. The 'Q is ok, but the baby back ribs are nuts.

great tip! I sure wish someone had mentioned it to me when I went. The only thing it worked on, IMO, was the sausage.

Arlington/Grapevine: you won't be too far from North Main BBQ in Euless. AYCE but only open on Fri/Sat I think.

the woodshed in fort worth is absolutely worth the short drive from arlington. i'd venture east of austin to lockhart and hit up kreuz, smitty's or both. even further to the west of austin in llano is cooper's.

If you willing to drive to Fort Worth stock yards :)

Risky's bbq at the Stockyards location at the end of the strip.

http://www.risckys.com/

All you can eat beef ribs for $10 bucks. Its nuts, and they are good. And you get to see some of the old west while you are there, and ride a mechanical bull if you are brave.

Here's a post of a trip I took recently to Austin.

Gore went too and put up a post.

There's a website called "Full Custom Gospel BBQ" that has a very extensive list and reviews of BBQ joints all around TX.

I'll second Hard 8, it's one of the places I make a trip to on my motorcycle. Their ribs are really good, and if you're in the mood for smoked whatever, they have all sorts of things. It's sold market-style, so if you want a single slice of brisket, two bones of ribs, and half a sausage they can do that for you.

How much time do you have along the way? Are you planning on stopping between San Antonio and Waco? How much time do you have in DFW? Hutchins FTW!

As a Fort Worth resident, I can't vouch for SA but on the way up 35 you have to check out Miller's Smokehouse in Belton, Kirby's BBQ in Mexia and detours in Tarrant County worth your time are Billy's Oak Acres BBQ out in far west Fort Worth and Longoria's BBQ off of 35W northbound in Everman (south FW) - get the brisket sausage.

I echo that Rudy's is the only decent (yes, it's a chain) BBQ in Arlington - get the moist brisket - but North Main in Euless is semi-nearby and often good on the weekend - it's a buffet too! And if you want to swing out to Dallas from Grapevine, Lockhart Smokehouse in Oak Cliff (Dallas) or the long lines at Pecan Lodge in downtown Dallas are worth the wait and the expense.

The Full Custom Gospel Blog was/is Daniel Vaughn, the now BBQ editor of Texas Monthly and the website www.tmbbq.com is a great resource for Texas 'Q.

Another good one (not in Arlington but is basically on the Arlington FW border) is Smokey's.

I second Hutchins bbq. Their ribs and brisket will make you cry. Get the stuffed jalapenos too! I am always in a food coma when I leave Hutchins
