About this title: For the first time, a comprehensive guide to the best barbecue places in Texas. All barbecue places had to stand up to the demanding ribbon, fork, and squeeze tests. Sauces, side dishes, decor, and atmosphere are also described but not rated. Troxell even includes a few recipes he managed to wheedle from the cooks at some of his favorite places.
Note: This is a general synopsis. Each listing is described below.
