How to Distinguish True Texas BBQ

Not All BBQ Is Texas Smokehouse BBQ

One of the most well known and beloved foods of the American South is barbecue, and one of the best types of BBQ available, like all great southern things, comes from Texas.

Every region has its own specific style of BBQ, which depends heavily on the cooking method and sauce, although the differences among these BBQ types may be confusing to those unfamiliar with the region. The four main styles of BBQ in the United States are Memphis, Carolina, Kansas City and (our favorite) Texas. A true Texas BBQ restaurant uses slow cooking and serves a tomato based sauce that is a balanced combination of sweet and spicy.

Texas BBQ can be made with a variety of meats, including beef ribs, pork ribs, and pork shoulder. However, the favorite choice by far is brisket, which should be smoked, rather than cooked, and heated slowly to give the meat the tender delicious flavor that Texans recognize as authentic. Side dishes are also crucial, and no BBQ menu would be considered complete without mac n’ cheese, cole slaw, potato salad, and collard greens.
