Dallas Barbecue Joints By The Numbers

Vital meat statistics

So. Much. Meat.
So. Much. Meat.
Kathy Tran [EDFW]

How much do the people of Dallas love barbecue? Although North Texas is tragically underrepresented in the state’s regional barbecue styles, you already know that it’s a lot. If you weren’t aware, area restaurants are churning out smoked meats and sides by the actual ton, proving that style is irrelevant if the ‘cue is good.

Eater asked some of the area’s top barbecue places just how much barbecue they serve on a weekly basis. Scope out this breakdown of the massive amounts of meat (and sides!) sold in this city every single week.
