Are Barbecue Lines a Thing Of The Past?
If you visited one of several high-profile Houston barbecue joints in late 2021, you might think your fellow Houstonians had gone crazy for barbecue. Or, at least, crazier than usual. The lines to get into places such as Truth BBQ on Washington and Brett’s BBQ Shop in Katy were 50-100 people deep and snaked out the door and through the parking lot.
The reason, of course, is that these joints were included in the recently released 50 Best BBQ Joints list from Texas Monthly. Every four years the magazine releases a list of new and returning joints anointed as the best in the state, and Texans begin the pilgrimage to these places to see what the buzz is about.
