Introducing The 10 Best BBQ Restaurants In Texas

Rounding up the best barbecue restaurants in Texas seems like an overwhelming feat, even for the most insatiable carnivore, but Texas Monthly has done just that. They’ve ranked the expansive state’s best bbq spots. And for a little added drama this year, the magazine knocked beloved Franklin Barbecue down a notch to number two. (Remember that time President Obama cut in line it was so good? Then picked up the tab for everyone behind him?)

In the number one spot is newcomer Snow’s BBQ in the small town of Lexington, where the pit master is an 82-year-old badass named Tootsie Tomanetz.

Fun fact about Snow’s: It’s open only on Saturdays, starting bright and early at 8 a.m. (yes, they serve breakfast).

Here’s the entire Top 10 list:
