Big in Texas

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My name is Gleason and I'm a born and raised Texan currently living on the East Side of Dallas.  I've been grilling for a long time but got into smoking about two years ago.  I own a 22" Weber, 26.75" Weber and a Pit Barrel Cooker.  Started smoking with a Smokenator on the 26.75 Weber and have since acquired a Pit Barrel.  It's become a bit of an addiction and am hoping to graduate to a full sized wood smoker asap.  Glad to be a part of this forum and am looking forward to learning some new tricks.  I post a lot of my cooks on instagram as @gleasongrills and welcome you to follow me there.  Thanks!

I know the addiction also. And found this site this morning looking for info on getting better. I have been using a wood burner now for about a year it is a big change from the barrel cookers. Love them both but my wood burner and me have a love hate looking forward to learning with everyone on this site.

Hey Gleason. I'll be in Dallas the last week of March for Wrestlemania week. Any suggestions on the best BBQ in Dallas?

Hey J.  This is a tough question.  Lockhart's and Pecan Lodge are the top dogs in town.  You can't go wrong with either one but they each have their strengths.  Both make fantastic brisket.  I prefer Pecan Lodge's sausage but they're still pretty even.  Pecan Lodge makes their own and Lockhart's imports theirs from the famous Kreuz Market in Lockhart, TX.  The mac n cheese at Pecan Lodge is phenomenal.  Both have a bar but Lockhart's wins for their selection.  If you hit Pecan Lodge get there early because there is always a line.  Both open at  11am and serve until they run out.  Off the Bone has the best ribs in town.  Worth a trip if you have the time.  Happy eating and let me know what you think!  Pasted their websites below:
