Blue Ribbon Barbecue has closed.

We hate to see Texas BBQ joints shut down. Just learned that this past fall, Blue Ribbon Barbecue closed its doors. We wish Bobby and all of the BRB family the very best.

Big Cat BBQ open in Cedar Park

I had this queued up months ago, but it slipped by me. So, I'm posting it way later than I wanted. Nonetheless, I wanted to let you know Big Cat BBQ is open for business in Cedar Park. The menu includes black Angus brisket, beef ribs, pulled pork, St. Louis pork ribs, German-style sausage (with cheddar and jalapeño). They also have hot links and smoked turkey. Sides include beans, potato salad, slaw, buttered corn, green beans, and macaroni & cheese.  Check them out on Twitter. And here is a map & contact information.

Todd visits Hard Eight

Another email from our man Todd Plunk, who visited Hard Eight BBQ in Coppell, while he was home for the holidays: 

"Over the Christmas holidays, I had the chance to visit Hard Eight BBQ in Coppell, TX. Entering through thesmoking pit and holding area, you're met with the sweet smell of smoke as you arrive. The menu is quite full, offering far more than just the standard brisket and ribs, so if you are in the mood for something different than the staple meat choices, this might just be your new place.  I sampled quite a bit of the menu, and while the BBQ was good, I especially enjoyed the poppers. It's said pictures speak louder than words, so hope you enjoy these photos!"

Zimmerhanzel's BBQ has closed.

Longtime Smithville BBQ joint Zimmerhanzel's BBQ has shuttered. Another BBQ joint is opening, in its place (Smithville Pit BBQ, I believe. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.).

Black's-Anjore-Zilker dinner

Earlier this month, I posted about a dinner collaboration among Black's Barbecue, Anjore, & Zilker Brewing. Man Upper Todd Plunk attended and sent me a write-up, with some pics:

"What do you get when you combine Oysters and Texas BBQ? ...A special collaboration with Anjore and Black's BBQ Austin! On January 14, Chef Deepa Shridhar teamed up with Barrett Black to create a one of a kind dish and came up with something truly amazing, an Oysters Rockefeller Kati Roll with Post Oak Smoked Gulf Oysters, Black's Smoked Sausage, and tikka masala BBQ sauce, all topped with house paneer. With just the right amount of spice, the pictures don't do this creation justice. The collaboration didn't stop there however, Zilker Brewing Co. brewed up some special beer for the evening brewed with Smoked Satsuma Syrup! Hopefully this will be the first of many collaborations hosted at Black's BBQ in Austin."

Brisket at a Spurs game!

I had the great fortune of court-side seats for Sunday's game between the Mavs and Spurs. With the seats came access to dinner beforehand at the arena. Sliced brisket was among the items on the buffet. #GoSpursGo

Texas BBQ Wannabe: 157

157. Lone Start BBQ Catering & Event Center (St. Peter, Minnesota) - "As we played with the idea of starting our BBQ establishment, we came to the conclusion that our "mission" was quite simple.  If the food that we are preparing is not exceptional, it will not be on our menu.  We learned and practiced the art of barbecue for several years while competing on the Texas BBQ competition circuit.  Other recipes were family favorites collected over the years.  Everything that comes out of our kitchen is made from scratch.  From our appetizers to our desserts, our BBQ sauces and salad dressings and our seasoned fries are hand cut.  And, of course, our meats are seasoned and slow roasted in hardwood smoke.  We hope you enjoy our commitment to excellent food."
