Growing up in Oklahoma, smoking meats was a regular occurrence at family get-togethers. My Grandpa owned an Oklahoma Joe’s smoker when I was growing up. He then passed it down to my Dad. When I started showing an interest in cooking, my Dad taught me how to smoke meats out on my Grandpa’s smoker.

For the past decade my Dad and I would smoke brisket, pulled pork and ribs whenever I would come home to visit in the summer. This last year I became the proud owner of my very own smoker, a Traeger pellet grill and smoker.

I spent the last year testing and perfecting my smoked brisket and pulled pork recipes. I’m still using the smoked brisket marinade, rub and wet mop recipes that my family has been using for years. But I have found a few techniques, tips and tricks to make my families smoked brisket recipe even better!

I was super intimidated when I first started smoking my own brisket. But now that I’ve got the recipe and method down, it’s so easy, I make it all the time!

The Best Dang BBQ Sandwich Ever

When Chef Chad Houser of Parigi Restaurant recommended Pecan Lodge BBQ, I thought he was sending me to a restaurant…  but he was actually sending me to heaven on earth!

Sometimes you have a good meal that you think about from time to time, then you have those meals that get stuck in your head like a dang Katy Perry song!

Most girls daydream about cute boys, fancy clothes or a fun night out with the girls, I daydream about food!! Currently my daydreams are filled with Chopped Brisket Sandwiches and Bacon Mac and Cheese!

Melt-in-your-mouth is an understatement, this sandwich disintegrates into little pieces of paradise on your tongue. The tender meat, flavorful sauce and soft, buttery bun combine to make “the best dang BBQ sandwich ever!”

Nothing makes me happier than the site of a glistening buttered bun and crispy bacon crumbles!

A small stall in the Dallas Farmers Market is all it takes to make your BBQ dreams come true!

I would have tried one of everything on the menu, but this happened…

Yes, a line around the Farmers Market.  At 1:05 when we arrived at the front of the line, brisket was our only option. Pulled pork, SOLD OUT. Ribs, SOLD OUT.  Sausage, SOLD OUT.

The word is out people!  Get here at 11 AM and remember they are only open Thursday through Sunday.  Although in my opinion it should be a crime to only offer the “best dang BBQ sandwich ever” 4 days a week!

Look for this little gem in the heart of Texas premiering on Food Networks Diners, Drive Ins and Dives this Monday night!
