Made a quick trip from SA to check on this place. Brisket solid albeit inconsistent. Pork ribs were good; sausage and potato salad okay. Overall solid Q place to stop by if you're driving on I-35.

Great ribs fall of the bone with a bite. Brisket was dry hard chewy.

I only had brisket and sausage, but it was very good. It is now on my repeat visit list. Brisket: flavorful bark, very moist and tender and excellent flavor. Jalapeño sausage: good snap, consistency and flavor. I would like it even more if it was a little more spicy.

Big Al’s Smokehouse Barbecue has been smoking meats in Dallas for forty years. I recently sat down with owner Al Plaskoff to discuss a little Dallas barbecue history, and to learn where Big Al’s fits into the local story. It’s quite a legacy. There aren’t many restaurants of any type that last forty years, let along a barbecue joint in Dallas. For the first 39-1/2 years of that lifespan they’d been cooking their briskets completely…
