All About Pecan Lodge Dallas Texas

Pecan Lodge is a BBQ restaurant in Dallas, Texas. It sits in the heart of Deep Ellum, and is one of the best BBQ places in Texas. You've probably seen it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives or other popular food shows. The restaurant itself is fairly small, so be prepared to wait an hour or so for food unless you get there when they open at 11 am (I recommend getting there around 10:30). If you're not sure what you want to order and are with a group of people, I suggest ordering an assortment of meats and sides to share as their portions are quite large. Texas-BBQ

Do you like Texas BBQ?

Texas barbecue is a style of slow-cooking meat, kind of like how the English have their own way of making tea. Just like someone would find it strange to drink Earl Grey tea with lemon, you probably won’t find Texas barbecue in Kansas City, where they usually serve beef brisket slathered with tomato-based sauces. In Texas, beef brisket and ribs are smoked (not grilled) over oak wood or mesquite and served without sauce. Sauce was actually invented by butchers in the late 1800s to disguise the tough taste of older animals. In Texas BBQ restaurants however, you’ll get some delicious thick slices of brisket that melt in your mouth without a sauce on top. If you love BBQ but aren’t from Texas, don’t worry! There are plenty of restaurants around the country that serve delicious southern-style brisket and other meats. The most famous one is Pecan Lodge in Dallas TX . They serve up all kinds of great meats from smoked prime rib to turkey sausage and have been rated as one of the top 10 BBQ joints in America by numerous sources including Bon Appetite and Food Network Magazine.

Smokey meats

The meats are smoked in a pit, where they are given a smokey flavor and become tender and juicy. There are four types of wood that they use to smoke the meat: mesquite, oak, pecan, and hickory. You can taste the different flavors of each type of wood on the different types of meat. The brisket is smoked with mesquite wood, which gives it a sweet, smokey flavor that is not too overpowering. The turkey is smoked with pecan wood, which makes it have a slight nutty flavor along with being smoky and tender. Ready more fun? Be sure to check out Dallas Wings

Sweet onion pie

The Pecan Lodge pies are made with a sweet onion filling and a sweet and flaky pie crust. The pies are served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They're available in three sizes: one serving, two servings and four servings. The pies are baked fresh every day. It takes about 20 minutes to bake the smaller pies, and about an hour for the larger ones. Pecan Lodge uses about 12 onions for each small pie, 24 for medium pies and 48 for large pies.

BBQ sauce

BBQ sauce is a liquid condiment made from tomato paste, vinegar and sweeteners like sugar or molasses, with spices and seasonings added for flavor. It’s often used as a marinade, basting or topping for meat cooked in the barbecue cooking style—slowly over indirect heat. BBQ sauces are typically divided into four categories: Kansas City-style, Carolina-style (Eastern North Carolina and Western North Carolina), Memphis-style and Texas-style. All of Pecan Lodge’s BBQ sauces are based on the classic Kansas City style. The best BBQ sauces are made with a tomato base. Tomato adds acidity to balance out the richness of meats cooked in BBQ sauce, making it an essential ingredient in any good sauce recipe. The amount of tomato paste you add to your recipe will determine how thick or thin the final product is—for example, if you want your sauce to be thick enough for dipping ribs straight out of the smoker then you would use more tomato paste than if you wanted it to be thin enough that it could be lightly drizzled over slices of brisket on a bun.
