    DA: Beaumont BBQ?

    On my way to Houston last night I stopped in Beaumont and ate at The Pig Stand on College thinking it was a BBQ place. However, I ordered their BBQ sandwich and it was one of the best I'd ever eaten--even with relish on it! (I would NEVER have ordered it that way.) I even put some cole slaw on it, something I learned while I was in North Carolina. Yum, yum!

    While I was waiting for the sandwich, I wished I'd ask for your recommendation of the BEST BBQ in Beaumont, since I'll be passing through quite often.

    My children and I have eaten BBQ in different areas of the southeast, kind of a "hobby" or excuse for an outing. Now I need to know what's good along the I-10 corridor. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    When my son and I drove to Arizona when he entered the U of A we saw many signs for steak houses that specialized in cooking with mesquite. We never got to try them because while we were driving it wasn't dinner time. We stopped in El Paso and wound up in a TGIF Fridays. We both had the Steak w/Jack Daniels Sauce. To this day I still think how those mesquite steaks might have been.

    not to be bias, but all beaumont bbq joints are good. next time try willie rays bbq or brousards links and bbq. their is another place open up in a very rough section of town, so you know it must be good, so you better go their only in the day time...lol.

    i also recommend stopping by here for dancing and live entertainment.
    guarantee fun. its downtwon.

    Sorry I didn't tell you about my stop beforehand, but it was a last-minute, female sudden change of mind as I rolled into Beaumont. I'm usually a pedal-to-the-medal, make-the-best-possible-time, drive-thru only maniac when I travel, but since I was "sans enfants" I was feeling a little more adventurous ... and relaxed!

    Thanks for the recommendations. What's the name of the "rough" place? Sounds just what I'd be interested in ... during the day!

    DA, just got back and I saw Willie Ray's from I-10. I'm definitely stopping there next time, and I'll try to notify you in advance.

    Tim, having traveled and eaten BBQ across the southeastern US, I must say Tennessee has some good stuff! And there's something about Memphis ... mmm mmm mmm. Maybe it's the spirit of Elvis! I ate at the original Corky's in Nashville years ago, but the "chain" store here is the pitts (pun intended ). I was disappointed.

    Pat, maybe we could share some of our best barbecue recipes with you so you could make some of your own ... that is until you move down here to God's country.

    Pat - Just think of BBQ as one of those great Pennsy Dutch pig roasts with sauce!

    BTW - If anyone wants to post their favorite BBQ sauce recipes, there a recipe topic in Members, here: link to "Post your favorite recipes"
