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.

Pecan Lodge has been one of our go-to spots for BBQ in Dallas since their debut at the Dallas Farmers Market. Owned by Diane and Justin Fourton, the duo has been busy making their mark on the BBQ landscape one rib at a time. And damn are those ribs tasty.
Recently the Fourton’s were featured on the Food Network slice of insanity, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. Not sure if this little restaurant that is located in the Market’s Shed Two qualifies as a dive or a diner, it certainly isn’t a drive-in. Regardless, the program made a huge impact on the young business. Continue reading
