Just a short note to those following the epic work of Scott as he combs the underbelly of DFW bbq for good eats. One of his recent "better than average" recommendations was Big Al's on Inwood. We did the party take out deal with Big Al on Saturday and it was very good (for Dallas...:-) I just ordered pork ribs and chopped brisket so it wasn't the full monty follow-on to Scott's indigestion but the crowd was very pleased with both items. Nice smoke and tenderness to the brisket and good rendering and smoke on the ribs.
It was better than the other places I usually go, so Scott's work is paying off! I still want to try the place in Deep Ellum that seemed to be his other "good one so far."
