40 minute wait was worth it. tried 3-meat plate, and brisket, ribs and sausage were all great. mac-n-cheese was one of the best with green chili and bacon.

Pecan Lodge is the best BBQ in Dallas and the brisket alone would give this establishment the #1 nod. Amazing pork and beef ribs put Pecan Lodge on sacred ground in Texas BBQ lore.

The unquestioned anchor tenant of this gastro-carnival is Pecan Lodge, a three-year-old barbecue joint producing what is the best smoked meat in North Texas.

You may have heard that this joint is getting a bit popular. While I may lament not being able to visit my go-to barbecue joint without braving a long line, I’m happy for the proprietors. Justin and Diane Fourton are friends in the barbecue world, and I’ve sought some bit of smoking advice from Justin on what were once biweekly visits. During those many visits I watched their menu evolve and sampled just about every…

After a nearly two-month hiatus (that felt like years to some barbecue fanatics) Pecan Lodge is back up and running. Justin and Diane Fourton have a wide menu of Southern food favorites so they weren’t exactly closed, but there’s no doubt that a celebration was warranted. A banner exclaiming “BBQ is Back” was hoisted over the counter, and two new items were chalked up on the menu. While I was there to try the new…
