Taste Wood's Bar-B-Que


12:00pm 5/3/14 - There is a very good reason folks are double parked in front of Taste Wood's.  They know Glen Woods is serving up Top 50 quality barbecue.  The question is when will Texas Monthly discover Taste Wood's.  This is one of those place where the patrons are as excited as children in an ice cream parlor to place their order.

I scored Taste Wood's a 90 out 100.  Grand Champion Texas BBQ


Smoke:  The pile in the back had pecan, mesquite, and oak.  Your guess is as good as mine.  A steel barrel pit in the side garage does the day to day cooking.  A trailer mounted pit handles the catering demands.

Brisket:  Very Good.  A dark red 1/8in smoke ring beneath a thick black bark.  Meat is brown in color (injection?). Near perfect tender with one push to separate with fork.  A thick slice starts out moist but drys a little before you finish.  Full smoke flavor in every bite.  A nice rub adds a little seasoning and salt.  Fat is a nice smokey treat.  No sauce needed.

Ribs:  Very Good.  A bronze crust over tan interior (brine?).  Near perfect tender with clean bite and clean bone.  Like the beef starts out moist but drys a bit after sliced.  Full smoke enhances the great pork flavor.  A nice rub adds to the experience. No sauce needed.

Sausage:  Good.  A course ground beef and pork link with mild traditional spice.  A faint after taste and faint smoke.  Use the sauce.

Sauce:  Excellent.  This sauce was unique and exciting.  I have never had anything like it.  It was a thin very sweet sauce with honey brown sugar and drippings flavors.  It was thin enough to penetrate everything you dipped in it.  It transformed every bite into smokey BBQ candy.  A benchmark sauce for this meathead.
