@toddthetexan: @PecanLodge Had the brisket, unmatched! Great smoke! Collard greens amazing, sausage had a great flavor and nice snap

Reason it's one of the top ranked BBQ joints in Texas. Only problem is that parking is a little wanky. There is a free lot west 2blocks.

Been here twice. One time at the old location in the farmer's market and the second time at the new one about a month or so ago. Felt the same way both times: the brisket is outstanding. Very tender and a nice amount of flavorful fat. The ribs were chewy but had good flavor. Worth it for the brisket.

Awesome brisket and ribs!

The correct address is in Deep Ellum. Amazing BBQ. Brisket was perfect. Rendered properly, perfect smoke, and amazing bark. Pulled pork is probably the definition of if it west of the Mississippi ! And if you do not enjoy their cobbler you may need to check your citizenship!

Brisket had a great flavor at first but the smoke flavor seemed to get stronger toward the end of the meal and in appealing. Not too impressed with everything else, sausage had a funny texture. I would get the pork ribs again though. If I had any complaints it's that the brisket was dry. What's ironic is I was first in line, so I was hoping to get the freshest Q they had. I think Texas Monthly rated it too high. More like a 4.0.

Shed #2 at the Dallas Farmers Market is a vast, enclosed, and fully air-conditioned structure that essentially serves as a city-owned food court where up-and-coming restaurateurs crowd in to show off their skills. 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. It’s easy to find because their counter is just inside the front door, and also because a line…

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…
