I live in Texas and it is hard to refute that

Smoking a brisket right and then being able to repeatably serve it at that just right moment across an entire day is damn near impossible. Pulled pork can be better over time. Brisket dies. Ribs are a short enough of a smoke to churn em out all day

Ive been to the supposed mecca of Texas bbq. Lockhart Texas. And i was underwhelmed every time. I think that has as much to do with timing as anything. maybe I got old brisket but in my neighborhood, we all have smokers. And when you get a well made brisket even in a backyard smoker, it can be fantastic. And part of the allure is that it is damn hard to make great brisket.

If you love bbq of all kinds, I suggest joining North Texas BBQ Addicts facebook group. 24k members strong. Food porn gallore. And you learn a ton from a group that ranges from butchers to commercial restauranteurs to competition smokers to your average backyard hack. Not everyone is from Texas. They welcome all sorts. Just don't start a conversation about beans and chili. That kinda talk gets them riled up more than talking pulled pork vs. brisket!
