good thing the meat is superb, because I'm not a fan of the sauce

Pork ribs are superb. Brisket was a little dry. Ribs don't need sauce which is a good thing because the sauce isn't good. Lockhart slaw has a kick and is ok. Bbq beans are fair. Overall pretty good. Glad I came but won't make any special trips back.

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…
