The Brisket House – Woodway

The Brisket House - Woodway
Wayne Kammerl is one of the original craft-barbecue pitmasters in Houston, opening his original Brisket House location in 2010 as an homage to his early experience at legendary Tom's BBQ in College Station.

Opening a barbecue joint in an upscale neighborhood like Tanglewood was relatively novel in 2010, when suburban and rural joints were still the standard. But with the rise of craft barbecue, the clientele began to skew upscale too, and this location perfectly fit the bill.

The wood-burning Southern Pride smoker sitting right by the door was also also quite new, as most old-school joints had rickety, rusty old pits in the back not meant for public viewing. Though located in a shopping center, the fragrance of burning post oak still permeates the dining room, adding to barbecue bona fides of this location of The Brisket House – Woodway.
