The Brisket House – Deer Park

The Brisket House, Deer Park
Populated by oil refineries and chemical plants in cities like Deer Park and Baytown, Houston's far east side was never known for great barbecue until this outpost of The Brisket House opened.

Indeed, the blue-collar area of Deer Park, Pasadena and Baytown are known mainly for refineries and Urban Cowboy and not so much for great barbecue. Though there are a few chain barbecue restaurants, Kammerl’s decision to bring craft barbecue to Houston’s east side was a stroke of genius.

But not just in terms of barbecue consumer demand. Refineries are historically massive consumers of barbecue catering, with jobs for upwards of hundreds of employees. Refinery workers have come to expect great barbecue as part of the job and this location of The Brisket House – Deer Park fits the bill.
