Pork ribs were fabulous. Brisket was better than average. Sauce was different - pretty good. Squash was yummy.

Underwhelming brisket. It was slightly dry, with a faint bitter smoky aftertaste, and not very flavorful. I was glad sauce was offered.

At silver saddle smokehouse in Bellville. Brisket is amazing with big ol smoke ring. Almost all fat rendered which left such a juicy and melt in your mouth meat on my plate. Soooo good. Sides are also good. Corn casserole has a ton of flavor and spice. Not sure why not listed as bbq joint. So I requested it.

Some of the worst bbq ever. But the folks are very friendly.

Two ribs one smoked sausage and a slice of salami all stellar hit the spot with Fritos and sharp cheddar

Finally made it here and all meats were on the table. Nothing I can write will do this place justice. Truly the best BBQ I have ever tasted. The rub on the brisket and beef rib is like its own delicious side dish. Can't wait to come back!

Pricey, but good. Meat was flavorful by itself without the dunking in the vinegary sauce. I won't get it that way next time.

Johnny Doyle cooks on a gas-rotisserie, but he’d do it differently if he could. He takes pride in the barbecue he puts out in his nearly forty year old Denison restaurant, so when he had pit fire that destroyed his Oylers, he wanted to replace them. “[J&R Manufacturing] told me it would be a couple months before I could get an Oyler built, so I bought two Southern Prides instead.” Now he just can’t get…
