If there is one thing you should know about Texans, it is that we love, I mean LOVE our barbecue. There is truly nothing we will not bust out and bbq for. Your sister bringing the new boyfriend over to meet the fam? Let's barbecue! Your cousin just had a baby? Let's cue it up! Your best friend in 3rd grade just retired from their job? Great, let's just bust out the barbecue pit and celebrate!

No lie, that is how much we love our barbecue. And don't get it twisted, other states, or even family members from other areas might say they can throw down with some barbecue? That's cute, no you cannot. Only Texans can do it right in our opinion. You might try to imitate, but you can never duplicate anyone from Texas and their barbecue.

Barbecue. Barbecue table spread. Beef brisket, chicken, pork ribs, beef ribs, Mac n cheese, cornbread, Brussels sprouts, coleslaw & beer. Classic traditional Texas meats & side dishes.

Do you know that we spend obscene amounts of money on outrageously large and fancy barbecue pits to be able to accomodate all of the friends and family that will be invited over for some barbecue for whatever the occasion?


Did you know that many Texans have entered barbecue 'competitions' to find out whose bbq is the best? Did you know that when anyone in a Texan's family gets married, there is no need to worry about 'catering.' I guarantee an uncle, a friend, a cousin or neighbor has a barbecue pit just waiting to be fired up!

With all of that being said about how much Texans love our barbecue, just FYI we are 30 days to Mother's Day, and in case you are stressing over which fancy restaurant to treat mom to this year, say less, I guarantee mom will be more than happy with you firing up the grill and barbecuing for her special day!
