Killen’s Barbecue and Tailgating

I have proclaimed my love of Kansas City barbecue on this very venue a many a times.  I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge that the place that I currently reside is also known for being home of the best barbecue in the country as well (I only acknowledge Texas, Memphis and KC for this accolade!).  When I mention that I have a food blog there are certain places that people always ask if I have visited, Killen's in Pearland usually tops the list.  When I say that I have not been, there is initial shock and then [...]

Texas BBQ

My friends and I at the Swinging Door Full disclosure, although I was raised in Houston, I was born in Kansas City, Missouri, which is known for it's barbecue.  For me, the pinnacle of barbecue will always be Kansas City barbecue.  Even with my limited expectations, I still venture out to Houston barbecue spots from time to time.  Before heading to Braman Winery, we stopped down the street to Swinging Door Barbecue for a birthday dinner. First rule, when you pull up to a barbecue spot, you should be able to smell it outside. Swinging Door passed this test. Then [...]
