Before I ask for your reactions (Many of you already have weighed in. As of now, there are 138 comments below the TM post.), I just want to congratulate all of the winners for the honor, as well as the staff of Texas Monthly for seeing their hard work come to fruition. Kudos for traversing far and wide to get as big of a sample as you did. Cheers to all of you.
So, what are your thoughts? I can't imagine any two people would come up with the same list, as lists like this are inherently subjective, so I am sure everyone has something to say. Any places you feel should not be on the list? Places that should have been included? Thoughts on the list's methodology? Should brisket count the most? What about the 1300+ joints that didn't get visited? Anyone already making plans to hit up all 50? Weigh in with your thoughts!
