When deciding a list of our favorites, it seemed a more daunting task than originally thought. So many more came to mind as the list was settled.
With all the heartache of selecting which can stand alone as the very best, we humbly submit in no particular order sandwiches that we enjoy. Tell us your favorites and we will run out today and sample one. Continue reading

This weekend we had the pleasure to hook up with Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and his family a we made our way about the city of Dallas after his concert Saturday evening. As a person who spends much of his life on the road (in a well appointed tour bus) Perry has sought out ways to spice up what otherwise could be bland or boring meals. He is obviously in terrific shape, and noted that after a concert he would typically eat turkey legs. He carries around his own spice kit and historically purchased bottles of sauces to make the turkey more flavorful. A few years back he decided to create his own line of sauce blends that would kick up his meals, and soon offered them to the public. The Rock Your World sauces come in several flavors, including a spicy Boneyard Brew, Original BBQ and a Peach Mango. Continue reading

For those sitting in wait for Pecan Lodge 2.0 to open in Deep Ellum, set your clocks for 7pm May 23rd. This is when the public will be able to sample the amazing brisket, sausages, ribs (both pork and beef) along with all the other fantastic things that has made the BBQ joint so legendary. The new digs are spectacular, and befit the vision that owners Diane and Justin Fourton have been furiously developing for the past year.
With news of the opening, and a preview for friends and media, there were some terrific announcements made last night. The first is that Pecan Lodge will now be selling growlers of beer. And to top off the brew news Four Corners Brewing Company came up with a new beer in their line up called The Boss Lady, which is named after Diane Fourton. The new beer, called Rustic Red, is actually a spin off of the brewing company’s American amber, Red Roja, that has been dry hopped for a special piquant flavoring backed with notes of stone fruit and citrus.
