    A properly-barbecued brisket is the peak of culinary achievement. Full. Stop.

          If either of you ever come by the Atlanta or Columbus, GA area, I would be delighted to treat you to some BBQ pork with sauce on the side, which you will be free to taste...if you do not fear expulsion from brisket Eden.

          And if I ever get back to Texas, I will be delighted to meet you at whatever Texas BBQ joint(s) you recommend, and gorge myself on brisket, sauceless.

          I hope local beer will be heavily involved at either location.

            barbecue brisket we have a local place that's almost the equal of Waggoner's.
            Bigham's has been around since the late 1970s.
            They are most assuredly NOT "Tom and Bingo's" nor are they J&S.
