Most efficient Texas BBQ joint?

Lots of Texas BBQ joints have long lines. Some longer than others. Surely a factor in some people's decision about which joint to patronize is the pace of the line. Which Texas BBQ joint have you found to be the most efficient at moving people through the line?

Town Lake on a BBQ tour?!

The 2nd stop of last month's Texas Q Tours public tour was a 1-hour, guided tour of Town Lake. Most of the group chose to stand-up paddle board. A couple of us kayaked. And a couple of us canoed. Our tours aren't just BBQ joints and adult-beverage stops (breweries, wineries, distilleries). Our tours have taken us to places like the Riverwalk, golf, skeet shooting, and, as you now know, Town Lake. The beauty of our private tours is we customize the tour to the client's wishes. However you want to spend your tour day(s), we will see if we can make it happen. And though our public tours have pre-set itineraries, we set those itineraries with your requests in mind. So, if there's a spot you'd like to see us hit up on a public tour, just let us know. And if you're interested in a private tour for your family, friends, office, etc., email us!

Pork lunch at Charlotte airport

During my 3 years of law school, flying back and forth between Alabama & Massachusetts, I made more connections in Charlotte than any other city. Each time, had a BBQ meal from Brookwood Farms, the BBQ offering in the food court. Yesterday, Charlotte was my layover between Austin & San Juan. Naturally, I hit up my old haunt. Pulled pork, collard greens, squash casserole, fried pickle, & cornbread. As Todd Snider sings, "Just like old times."

What's the next big city for Texas BBQ?

I could say it's arguable Austin is the #1 destination in the country for Texas BBQ, but it's not arguable. Austin is the hottest town in the world of Texas BBQ. No city in the country has more buzz about Texas BBQ. But which town, if any, is going to step up as a contender for the title of hottest ticket in Texas BBQ? Is it Houston? Is it Dallas? Is it...wait for it...New York City?!?! Could it be London? Weigh in!
