There is plenty of pork BBQ in the area.   Even the beef places tend to make some damn good pork sausage.

/City Market, Luling TX

Best BBQ in Austin for me ... 2 chopped beef sandwiches, one in each hand, at Stubb's after getting tore-up, seeing Motorhead play a killer show and geeting to meet Lemmy.

Proper bbq in Texas is beef, slow cooked over moist smoky heat.  You can use chicken or pork if money is tight, but beef is best.  You can even grill rather than bbq if you're in a hurry, like a New Yorker, or something. Long story short, beef is a mammal and it's not a pig, so it's best. There's some logic that cannot be questioned.

East coast bbq, like Atlanta - they love the pork, and I am multicultural enough to tolerate these quaint foreign customs, but Texas = beef.

I have been advised that pork, particularly of the feral variety, is in strong supply in the Lone Star State.

Southeast BBQ is mostly pork.  Though I'm still not sold on mustard sauce.

Texas 'BBQ' is a joke. If you have to put that much molasses, brown sugar, and ketchup on that rancid meat of yours to make it edible, then just drop the damn thing in a deep fryer and be done with it.

There is no BBQ in Texas . . . unless someone toted it over from east of the Mississippi.

I suppose you've never had any real barbecue, just vinegar on pig, correct?

Stubbs hot barbecue sauce on ribs for the win!

I was flip-flopping between the BBQ joke or something about a pop-up artisinal bacon food-truck market.  I figured BBQ chat would be better than another "Those crazy hispters!" thread.

Hey it is just like Franklin's: people are queuing up for hours over it.

Franklin's is #1.  And The Salt Lick is #2 for me.

And plenty of #2s after you throw down all the brisket.

Attention all yall:

Look, each region of the country has it's own version of how they do BBQ. So quit yer biatchin about who has it better! If you are gonna biatch about BBQ at least do it based on BBQ places, not states or regions!

I'll be driving by this mess in about an hour, I hope the smell is worth it.

happydude45: Stubbs hot barbecue sauce


Dude, that much molasses, brown sugar, and ketchup will make almost anything taste good. I do eat the stuff on chicken nuggets though, and will give it a try based on your recommendation (though the price is crazy high on amazon prime $12/18oz, have to look for it locally. )

Texas BBQ sucks.  All ya'll remember that.  Go east for some real BBQ.  And stay out of Austin, the people are rude, the music sucks and it's way too damn hot.

Wish all of the coasters would leave the damn state.  Screwed up the real estate market as well.....

And I'll clarify, these are my favorite BBQ places in Austin...I hate the idea of best BBQ in the country etc etc...Each region has it's own style, and it's good.

I'm talking about when I drive in to Austin from Houston (and BBQ here isn't very good IMO), that's where I head to.

And rent is too damn high, traffic sucks, bums and nasty people are everywhere and they take roads and turn them into bike lanes. You'd hate living here. Really.

Kroger has it for about 3 bucks a bottle here. It is good.

And actually, though I don't get the appeal of the vinegar sauce, I try barbecue everywhere I go that has it. Hard to beat. I am partial to Texas beef brisket and ribs though.

I've had it done well a couple of times when natives took me out.  The whole problem with getting it yourself is you have to drive around Least Carolina for a couple of hours to find it, and who the hell does that voluntarily?
 
2013-06-24 05:04:49 PM
often, people misconstrue culinary traditions of other places.  usually because a singular representation of it became the only instance somewhere else, so they have a false representative.   If that representative sucks and is popular, that is more a reflection of the bad taste of that location, not the origin.

/ anytime you talk to texas bbq people, they spend more time talking about the wood and the meat.  not the complexity of the rub. which is often not much more complicated than salt and pepper.

Well, I'm going to be less than 2 hrs away for Christmas w/ the Inlaws. Maybe I should stop by, teach you poor, gentle souls something about the art of BBQ, and check out some local real estate. Also, you can get rid of those cyclists with only a few well-worded ordinances. I'd be happy to help out there as well, kind of my own personal gift to the city.

Ooh ok :) Carry on :) Tis a worthy argument!

I've got family from Louisiana and want to take them to the best place to eat BBQ-wise.

if beef's not bbq, then fark bbq.

barbecue, from barbacoa, to cook over flames.

it is process-determined, not ingredient-determined.

/ i've had a smoked potato before.  it was really weird.  not comfortable calling it a barbecued potato.

It's not the cyclists I worry about.  A well placed car door solves that problem.  It's the coasters, you know the east and the west ones.

pute kisses like a man: barbecued potato


There's actually such a beast around here, though it isn't smoked at all. It's just potatoes that have been boiled in a vinegar based solution, red pepper flakes, and usually a little tomato juice. Not bad. There's also 'barbecued cole slaw' with a similar slant, not smoked or anything.

 To do pork correctly, it has to be done St. Louis style..Grilled with a little sauce, then put into a pot
of sauce to simmer while you finish up the fixins' and get everything ready..Then you pull out those
juicy, saucy and falling apart piggy parts.. The sauce should be a nice smokey/sweet-tangy thing too.. :)

 I find Texas beef BBQ dry and sorta bland..
 
2013-06-24 05:30:40 PM
Once while working in California, I asked a guy if he liked BBQ (I was hoping to get the name of a good bbq joint).  The guy said 'oh yeah, we bbq all the time' then he pointed over to his Weber grill.

You grill beef.

You BBQ pork.
