Going to get there at 10:15 and hold a spot for my coworkers. My mouth is already salivating just thinking about how good the brisker is going to be. Pics to follow next week.

My thoughts:

Ribs - The best rib I have ever had. It was amazing and large. A nice full spare with good smoke flavor and a nice little bark to it.

Brisket - I was actually a little dissapointed. While good, it wasn't great to me. I may have just not gotten the best slice, but I like the brisket at Hutchins better. I lark a nice deep smoke and this brisket just had a kiss of smoke, which is what some folks like. The ribs had more smoke to them than the brisket. It was prepared well. Plenty moist, and a pretty good bark.

Sausage - Ehhh, it was just ok to me. Its different for sure. He makes it himself I believe. It tastes like beef, not pork and is extrememly greasy.

Mac & Cheese - Ehhh, it was ok. I only ate half of what they gave me. Its in a cheese sauce that's a little runny. It was just a little bland to me. I don't like okra, but serveral folks got it at my table and it sure looked good.

Bread - They don't give you any!! What the heck? How can you have BBQ in Texas with no white bread?

Price - Ehh, a bit on the expensive side, but not too bad. I had the 3 meat combo that had 1 rib, 1 sausage, 1 good slice of brisket and a little chunck that was pretty much all fat, along with a side of mac and a can of coke. The total was almost $19.

All in all, I'm glad I went because now I know. It was worth the wait in line, this one time. I don't see myself doing it again though. The smart thing to do is get a group of 4-5 folks and head up there and order the "Trough". Its basically a big sampler of all their meats and some sides for $65 and it feeds 4-5 people. They have a walk up register for large orders over 5 lbs only, that doesn't have a line. We witnessed several folks walk in and go straight up to the register and order! No waiting at all and they got their food before I even got to place my order. This will be the only way I eat Pecan Lodge in the future.

Glad to see he finally quit saucing the ribs, I feel that sauce was holding back the ribs from their true potential. If the brisket didnt impress you, you probably got a bad cut.
