For more than a few years David Anthony Temple, or Chef DAT as he is sportingly known, has been the undisputed king of the underground dinner party. The chef has been mixing up long weekends of these intimate dining excursions featuring only what is local and fresh to the huzzahs of an ever-growing following.

Writing about Pecan Lodge has sort of become this low hanging fruit. Everyone knows it is some of the world’s best BBQ. The Hot Mess isn’t so much messy as it it sublime with it’s pulled pork goodness perched on top of a giant sweet potato. The brisket is superb, and you should always ask for fatty pieces because those are simply the best.

And the house-made sausages are not to be missed, especially the jalapeno version.

In a back room you will find an old school Coke machine, a piano, and also feature a cocktail den that is whiskey and gin oriented. They will try to keep the menu extremely traditional, but will have a rotation menu with other spirits such as rum and tequila. Continue reading
