BBQ is pretty big in Texas and the competition is fierce. So much so that it has torn apart families.
There is a town known as the BBQ Capital. There are two well respected joints. Once upon a time, legend has it, everyone got along fine. Then one brother decided to split off and open his own bbq joint. The town is actually split as far as which one is better. One has the no sauce ever idea and the other….
Then there is another family in a different nearby town. The Pitmaster brother was fired. He opened up his own bbq trailer with his sister. She fired him and swiped a Pitmaster from her family’s restaurant. Brother went on to open a trailer on his own. All the business are doing well.
But! The drama is amazing, it is almost like the Hatfields v. the McCoys v. Montagues v. Capulets v. the Lord of the Smokering.
All that aside, I have had food from all involved. They are all pretty good. I am partial to one particular places squash casserole. They all come with the traditional slices of white bread, onions, pickles, plastic fork and knife and served either on butcher paper on in some sort of paper container. They all keep it real and the infighting? Well, that just makes it interesting.
