After viewing this photo of today’s beef ribs at Lockhart, unless you are infirm or out of state, there is simply no decent reason not to join them for lunch today. I chewed half way through my USB cable lusting after this one.

Katy Trail’s BBQ Business Is Growing At An Amazing Rate

DSC08467by Steven Doyle

One of the most underrated spots in Dallas for barbecue is at the Katy Trail Ice House. They are quite literally going through hundreds of pounds of turkey, ribs, brisket and sausages each week with Eduardo Flores sitting as pitmaster each weekend. That’s right, the barbecue was originally set up to ease the mad rush of food orders on the weekends, but with Flores at the smoker the ‘cue has taken off on its own and is always a sellout by early Sunday afternoon.

“We smoke the brisket for about 18 hours, we do the ribs for 12 hours, turkey 12 hours, and we do sausages and chicken as well,” said Flores during a recent interview.  Continue reading

Kenny Is Smoking Meat In Plano

DSC08406by Steven Doyle

Kenny Bowers can play ball. Equipped only with his love for good food, Kenny has risen through the ranks as a restaurateur starting on Greenville Avenue so many years ago at Daddy Jack’s with his partner Jack Chaplin. This made much sense for the Boston renegade, if you speak to him long enough that accent is a dead giveaway to his roots. What Kenny did for chowda so many years ago he now does on the grill.

Bowers has created this empire that spans the North Dallas arena including Addison, Plano and Frisco. Each has a unique take on food he loves including the Wood Fire Grill with its steaks and seafood, Kenny’s Italian for its bodacious meatballs, and the Burger Joint for, well, the beautiful burgers. Now he has reason to celebrate in the Shops at Legacy in Plano with his very own smokehouse.   Continue reading

Pop Up BBQ? Yes, Please

porkby Steven Doyle

Pop Up restaurants are fun. Tasting cuisine that is not on any menu in town, and inspired for that one evening and fed to a small gathering is definitely my idea of entertainment. There are a small handful of chefs that make the Pop Up their livelihood. Chef DAT comes to mind, as does Frank, the underground private dinner party experience by MasterChef Season 2 finalists Jennie Kelley & Ben Starr. I also enjoy the food styling’s of Chef Nicole. We have discussed all these fun Pop Ups on craveDFW at length.

Now coming your way on Thursday, June 6, 2013 you will have a chance at tasting the first BBQ Pop Up at Garden Café in East Dallas. This is from Robert Lanktree who works for Julian Barsotti at Carbone’s and as sous for Chef DAT. Continue reading

Rathbun is known for his grill skills and now wants to share some of his guarded secrets with you and a few friends. On June 5, 2013 at 7pm Rathbun will host a BBQ Workshop at his KB’s catering and event venue located in Plano. Continue reading
