Jun 11: Texas BBQ


Because we had advanced warning of a maintenance power outage for most of the day, we ran away! The Swinging Door┬áhad been recommended to us, so that’s where we headed first.

Overall, excellent. The brisket, sausage, pulled pork, bbq baked beans and collard greens all got full marks for texture, tenderness and flavor. Some parts of the tri-tip were a little tough and overall not as tender as the other meats. Could have been an off day, as our friend said it “wasn’t as good as it usually is.” The Mac ‘n Cheese was okay.

We opted for the spicy BBQ sauce, and were very happy with that choice.

If our friend hadn’t paid, lunch today would have been around $19 for two meats and two sides.

And that was it for the day. Even though we’d been out in the yard planting a new tree before lunch, and went for a 90 minute walk later in the day we had no inclination toward dinner, deciding to have a snack later.

Which we never did. The lunch combo was enough.
