BSide BBQ - Oakland

While surfing through the April issue of Sunset magazine I came across an article about BSide BBQ in Oakland and the owner, Tanya Holland.  Always on the lookout for my faves:  brisket, mac and cheese and a side of cornbread I just knew this was on my list of "eating to-do's".

As we were making our way to a concert in Concord (ok...Barry Gibb who was fantastic) we stopped and I found myself in my element.  Great sides, amazing sauce and a casual, clean vibe all made the experience such a nice treat.

The owner really knows her stuff when it comes to marinades and the meat itself (go look up point cut and deckle).  It's always impressive to see passion fused with knowledge because you can almost taste it in the end result.  Deeply flavored from end-to-end with solid execution.   A winner!

There's nothing better than cornbread and slowly melting butter!

Not sure this photo does justice to the mac and cheese, but trust me, it's good!

Dicky's BBQ - Dallas Airport

Layover in Dallas?  No problem.  Make a stop at Dicky's BBQ in Dallas (Terminal C/Terminal E) and fill up on brisket, ribs and a slice of homemade pecan pie. 

I loved the food so much I actually stopped on my way home despite a much shorter layover and a connecting flight in another terminal.  This time they had the mac and cheese (they were out the first time.)

Brisket po' boy.  Oh boy!
I ordered the brisket po' boy with extra sauce which seemed the way to go.  Although I'm not sure I needed the bread it did keep everything neat and tidy for quicker eating between stops.
