Buzzies-Kerrville

Buzzies ribs had dry decent flavor. You have to work them a little to get the meat off the bone. Rub is seasoned well and not over applied but overall just so/so. 

2.5/5
2.75/5 with sauce

Jalapeño sausage

Very good crusty pop and pretty good distribution of meat, cheese, & jalapeño. I liked the crunch but the flavor could have been deemed on the  bland side, even with the jalapeño bite. Mix this with Buzzies BBQ sauce though and you have a real winner. I usually don’t judge with BBQ sauce but for Buzzies I will because I liked the sauce so much.

3/5 stars
3.75/5 with sauce

Brisket
Great moisture, good blackened crust, lack of smoke flavor. They smoke with oak at Buzzies and I feel the smoke flavor was a little understated. The texture was almost perfect and with the BBQ sauce (I’m laughing as I write this because of my usual disdain for BBQ sauces making the BBQ) popping some flavor onto the meat. I would recommend the brisket if your in the area with generous amounts of the sauce.

3/5 stars
3.75/5 with sauce

Bbq sauce
4/5
Actually pretty perfect. Just perfect amount of sweetness & spice. This sauce really turned the meal around. I was disappointed in the flavors of the meats even the sausage with jalapeños but the sauce was amazing & turned the experience around.

Strawberry cobbler
Amazing!! Amazing desert perfect blend of sweetness and utterly delicious.
5/5

Peach cobbler
Not as good as the strawberry but classic and sweet. But still 4/5 stars

 

 

 

 

 

Colter’s BBQ in Downtown Dallas

I always remembered the name Colter’s, because I remember their TV commercials growing up. But I never actually ate at Colter’s until recently. When the family and I went to celebrate a cousin’s graduation, we decided to go to Colter’s and taste real Texas BBQ.

Well, it wasn’t quite “real BBQ” in the true sense of the word. That’s not to say that it was a bad experience, I just wasn’t overwhelmed. When we went we tried the beef brisket as well as an order of classic ribs and baby back ribs. I also snuck in a few bites of my friend’s pulled pork. Continue reading

The Salt Lick BBQ – Driftwood

I just have to start this off by saying that I had really high expectations for this restaurant.  I’ve seen it on the Food Network, all my co-works talk about it…it is everywhere.  When something is hyped up so much you pretty much know you are going to be disappointed, so I put off going for quite awhile.  I have never been more wrong in my life!  This is last-meal-ever kind of good. This is, I don’t care if I gain 20 pounds kind of good!  Trust me.

My boyfriend and I headed over there just last weekend.  One thing that I really disliked about the place is the super long wait.  We are talking hours here, so be sure you get there with plenty of time to spare.  The place is BYOB, which is good to know for next time, I’m sure a brew or two will make the wait seem shorter.  But as the saying goes, “hunger is the best sauce”, and this food was totally worth the wait.
