Love Me Some BBQ
BBQ is one of those things I had always heard about, as any good American, but never something I was all that into until I moved to Texas. All of a sudden, brisket and ribs were things to seek out, celebrate, and stand for long periods of time in line for. BBQ in Texas is a highly controversial matter furthermore, as every place claims they have the best.
I love going out to get food and being able to smell my delicious meal before I get it. That definitely happened today at JMueller’s trailer on South First. The trailer park across from the food trailer park that hosts Gourdough’s and Izzoz tacos reeked of meat in the best possible way. After twenty minutes of debating between brisket, turkey, and ribs in line, I ordered a half pound of the beef ribs and chose chipotle coleslaw and baked squash for my sides.
Before I go on, I feel I must reiterate: everything smelled delicious.
I am a rib girl through and through but I don’t normally order beef ribs. I’m glad I did today. They were wonderfully tender,
flavorful, and juicy – blackened and spiced just enough with black pepper but with enough fat to keep it as BBQ should. And whatever they put in their sauce is the right stuff and paired marvelously with the meat.
BBQ sides are also players not to be forgotten. There is nothing quite like a good coleslaw when it is paired with meat. The baked squash was a little rich and soaked in butter, but I adapted.
