Bad BBQ in Big D

Also Lake Way Smokehouse funny enough not all that far from Big Daddy's near Wylie.

Got to the table. Took some pictures. Got my napkins in place. First few seconds was euphoric, letting the brisket melt away in my mouth. But when my tastebuds couldn't get in on the fun, well...it was a bummer.
I had the exact same experience at Soulman's last week. It looked good, the texture was great, the slices were moist, but the flavor just never kicked in. Too bad.
Smokey John's on Mockingbird just west of Inwood has always been solid choice for me.

Leave it to an aggy to try and give directions. I-45 ends in Dallas and only goes South. I-35 South is where most of the good stuff is.
In the metroplex, David's in Pantego (Arlington suburb) is the best in my opinion. When Lockhart's is on, it is legit as well.

I must agree. Lockhart Smokehouse seems to be getting better with every visit. But, it sure ain't cheap!

to see if they really smoke their meats. The verdict I believe was that the smoke was just for show.
However, there now appears to be a new method in use at Sonny's. It isn't conventional but
it is perhaps a step in the right direction.
