Texas BBQ Adventures Roadmap

I have plotted the good and the bad of Texas BBQ.  Let this map be your guide for your Texas BBQ Adventures.

It's coded according to the elementary colors of the rainbow (ROYGBIV).  You'll typically want to stay out of the Blue/Purple family of colors, though a Blue will do in a pinch.

Red: A+
Orange: A, A-
Yellow: B+, B
Green: B-
Blue: C+, C
Indigo: C-
Violet: D, F

  1. Hard 8 Barbeque in the Dallas area some of the best BBQ. Also, any map that doesn't even show a BBQ selection in Cleburne is missing the boat.

  2. Hard 8 in Stephenville was actually one of my first tastes of really good BBQ. I have not been to the other locations though. This is and will continue to be a work in progress. My to do list is quite lengthy. I will make sure to get Cleburne on the map.

  3. Couldn't find the BBQ map in the Google Play Store. Please publish soon.

  4. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. cheap high pressure needle valve


*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.
