WHERE THERE'S TEXAS SMOKE BBQ CO THERE'S FIRE

I never thought I would be in downtown Sanger Texas to eat anything other than fried chicken at Babe's.

Then I heard about Texas Smoke BBQ Company and I had a tough decision to make because Babe's is like comfort food kryptonite to me.

I had heard that Texas Smoke regularly sells out. So we decided to get there when they opened to make sure we wouldn't miss out on anything.

There was only one other person waiting for them to open when we arrived but by the time we left the place was starting to fill up and was doing quite a few take out orders as well.

DON'T PASS THE PIGSKIN'S BBQ

Experience has taught me that places that toot their own horns too much tend to leave me disappointed.

I don't know if it's because it builds up my expectations to a level that can't be achieved or because most spend more time telling us how great their Q is and not enough making really good Q.

Pigski0n's BBQ doesn't just tell you they are the best in town on the outside of the building but they put it right in your face when you step in the building as well.

SHOP TIL YOU DROP AT BOB'S PIG SHOP

I had been trying to get into Bob's Pig Shop for about 8 months.

On my first attempt in November of 2013. We arrived about an hour before closing time and they were out of Q. So we settled for tamales..... I know.... I know.... Apparently Mexican food is supposed to be their other specialty.... I might argue otherwise but I'm here to talk about Q.

Every other time we tried to get in they were closed. So when the opportunity to pass through Pauls Valley right around lunch time on a Saturday presented itself. I jumped at it!

This attempt wasn't the 3rd time I had tried but it turned out to be a charm. We pulled up about 1:30 PM and the parking lot was full of cars. I screeched into a parking space and ran inside before they could run out of Q on me again.
