Truth Barbecue - Brenham

Just My Rating and a Few Notes (For Now): 

The lean brisket takes top prize at this great barbecue joint. The crust is soft with its salt and pepper. The meat has a nice layer of fat and an overall good texture. The moist is juicy with tender fat but tastes quite salty. Pork Ribs have good smoke and a good texture and the sausage is quite good as well.  The beef rib is well prepared with a nice texture, but lacks the heft of flavor you expect from a beef rib.

The sides here are worth checking out.  The greens were surprisingly not sweet. It was a straightforward approach that worked well on the fresh, crunchy bites.  The corn pudding was sweet and great as well.  The mac & cheese didn't disappoint. The bread is cut thick and the sauce is tangy like apple cider.

*All Grades Are Based Solely on the Quality of Texas BBQ Offered at the Joint. We Aren't Looking for Burgers or Catfish!

My Grading Scale:

A = This is some of the finest BBQ you'll find anywhere. It is worth a roadtrip in itself along with any required wait.
B = This is very good BBQ, even if it is over an hour away, consider making the drive.
C = This is just average BBQ but it's worth a stop in a pinch.
D = This is a poor example of Texas BBQ. Even if it's the only place around, skip it. Apologize to any non-Texans that have eaten here.
F = This is not only a bad Texas BBQ, it is probably not suitable for human consumption.
