Heading to Houston this weekend just want some BBQ!

Howdy folks, this will be my first time to houston (coming from California). Most of the trip is planned but this Saturday I get to decide on what to do and all I want to do is try some down home texas bbq. Specifically brisket, I know some of the best joints are in central texas but if I can try something comparable that would be great.

I asked my gf and she said that we would go to Goode Co. She also specifically told me not to look too much into it and just give it a try. But it seems like that place doesn't get much love on this board and it seems kind of theme-y (not all people in TX are cowboys right?) I only have once chance to eat some bbq so thats why i got to make it count. Also we will be staying in sugarland so it has to be somewhat close. If it was up to me I would rent a car and drive to all the spots in central tx.

So far I have

Pierson & Co
Luling City Market (but is this hit or miss? and what's the ethical reasons?)

Hopefully I will be successful or my gf will be giving me grief for not going to goode co.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
