Snow's is back at #1 .

It's nice to see my old local favorite CattleAck debut on the list all the way up at #3 . A few of the top 10 I've not heard of. But the biggest surprise may be who isn't on the list - for instance, just one place in Lockhart made the cut...
I think another trip to Texas needs to be in my very near future...

I'm in Gonzales every other week and subsist partially on Baker Boys while I'm there. There's not a whole lot of choice in town but with six meats to choose from, I never get tired of it even if I wind up there three days in a week.

I guess I must have caught them on an off day, but I did not care for Cattleack at all. The line was utterly ridiculous for mediocre Q.

It wasn't bad, and I can see why it could make top tier, but it was no where near Pecan Lodge, Lockhart, or even 10-50 in Richardson in my opinion.

New best-of list from the BBQ writers at the Dallas Morning News, their favorite 41 spots.

Broken down by region (Houston, Austin/San Antonio, DFW, East Texas), so nothing in South Texas, Rio Grande Valley, West Texas or the Panhandle. It includes many of the usual suspects (but not all of them: only one in Lockhart and none in Luling), plus some that don't often appear on these lists. And a #1 pick not in Austin or Dallas or Lockhart, but in San Antonio.

Snow's is still on my bucket list, but their hours never work with my trips to Austin. I have the chance to be in the area this coming Saturday, but I'm not sure how early I can make it (will be coming down from either Dallas or Waco, TBD). Realistically, how early do they usually run out these days? I heard they expanded capacity a bit a few years ago, but I haven't really heard what that translates to in terms of hours...

(Also, I hear they run out earlier on game days and other events--anyone know if there's anything going on this Saturday that would cause higher-than-normal crowds?)

Aggie home game Saturday doesn't look great for your hopes. Longhorns are up in Lubuttock at least. Baylor is up at Iowa State.

Both times I've gone to Snow's I've aimed to arrive at 7:30. I have not waited more than 45 minutes either time.

Thanks for the response. It would have been a stretch to get there before noon and absolutely impossible to do anything before 10am. I'll just aim to book a place to stay in the vicinity some other Friday night, preferably outside of football season. :/

We are going to a wedding in a couple weeks and need some help finding good BBQ near Sugarland/Stafford area. I went through some of the lists here but the Houston area stuff was all too far north. In my limited Texas BBQ sampling the last time FT steered me to Pecan Lodge (and I can't thank you enough for that!) when we were in DFW and that was flat out amazing. Hoping for as good a recommendation again. Thanks!

Sugarland/Stafford area is pretty weak in terms of BBQ. There aren't a lot of options that I would recommend for that. Rudy's out in richmond is a chain but not far is pretty good BBQ for a chain. I would drive into the city for either Pinkerton's or Pit Room. In Stafford area a cool Texas place is Redneck Country Club, looking on there website they are starting a BBQ but can't tell you how good it will be. https://theredneckcountryclub.com/ In Stafford area for food I would go to Tornado Burger https://www.yelp.com.sg/biz/tornado-burger-stafford get burger or philly steak and ask for spicy.
