Texas Style Barbeque

Best of All American BBQ Styles?

This may sound pretty arrogant, but my personal belief is that Texas Style Barbeque is the best of all bbq styles. I see it in the passion Texans have for Texas Barbeque, and I see it in the love that is put into the barbeque itself.

There is plenty of room for other BBQ Styles, and I have come across many really good ones. All are unique in there own way. But there can be only one #1 barbeque, and in my book it has to be the Texas kind.

What exactly is Texas style barbeque, anyway? Well, it's mounds of sliced beef brisket, German sausage, and meaty ribs.

Texas bbq sauce is a spicy and tangy tomato-based sauce and is usually served on the side or lightly spooned onto the meat after cooking. It is usually not put on the meat during cooking.

Common among the Texas bbq side dishes are pinto beans, coleslaw, potato salad, friend okra, and a slice of plain white Mrs. Baird's bread. Also, condiments like sliced pickled cucumbers or jalapeno peppers go very well with Texas barbeque.

Many of the barbeque restaurants in Texas focus much of their energy almost completely on the food. It is very common to see the barbeque served on butcher paper with paper towels and plastic utensils.

Dessert is usually a warm cobbler with whatever fruit is in season...and with a scoop of Blue Bell Ice Cream on top(Blue Bell is the best ice cream in the country. Just ask any Texan. And they are selling it all over the country now).

The end result is always the same when Texas style barbeque is done right. It is delicious!
