Texas Bar-BQ Joints Map Project

I've been creating a Google Map on my blog for above average Texas Bar-BQ joints.
These are the ones I have so far - some of them I added after reading this thread.
If you have any that need adding I'd like to know. If there are some that enough of you feel should be thrown in the trash, I want to hear that too!

  1. Frug ... Houston is badly underrepresented here. The local 'hounds had their own BBQ smackdown back in late June, so Im sure someone will jump in here promptly to diss your choices and offer their own.

    1. re: Cheflambo

      I live near Humble, and have had to put up with Demaris' catering on several occasions, so I'll be the first to diss Mo's and Demaris. You can check the threads for good Houston BBQ.

    2. when I'm on the south side of Dallas, I usually try try to stop in at Smokey Joes. I think it's one of the better BBQ places in Dallas. Take out only. Great sweet potato pie.

      Smokey Joe's Bar-B-Que
      6407 S R L Thornton Fwy

      Dallas, TX 75232

      1. Big Boys BBQ
        2117 Lamar St
        Sweetwater, TX 79556
        (325) 235-2700

        One of the top 50 BBQ from TX Monthly a few yrs back, still a current honorable mention. Worth a stop for their homemade desserts, too.

        1. thank you i'll start checking them out

          1. Stubb's in Austin absolutely, positively must come off your list. The food there sucks. The Salt Lick isn't much better. In Austin, the best 'cue is at House Park Barbecue on 12th Street.

            1. re: austinfood

              I agree with this. Stubb's is a fun music venue, so if you're making a map of great places to hang out and drink beer, Stubb's belongs.

              But if your list is of great BBQ, as I understand it to be, Stubb's doesn't.

              1. re: Jaymes

                ok stubbs is going

                going to add House Park Big Boys BBQ Smokey Joe's later unless I hear strong objections...

                any other opinions on Salt....

                1. re: FrugalDanny

                  I also think Salt Lick is downright poor. I have been to about a dozen of the great places on your list... but remove Salt Lick. The meats were mediocre, and the sauce was horrible. The sausage was uninspired as well.

              2. re: austinfood

                I've only been to the Saltlick one time and I thought it was great. What do you not like about it? I have had Stubb's also and I thought it was a disappointment.

                However the Saltlick was very good.

                1. re: austinfood

                  I concur on Salt Lick.
