Here we are in the middle of the release of two Texas Monthly Top 50 BBQ Joints list, and what did they do? Prompted by so much good new 'cue, they released a list today of "The Top 25 New and Improved BBQ Joints in Texas."
Exactly one East Texas joint made the list. That one joint was the original Bodacious Bar-B-Q, which reopened in June on Mobberly Avenue in Longview.
Barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn writes with the posting of the list, "There are more good barbecue joints opening now than ever before."
Jordan Jackson was behind the original Bodacious' reopening, and he told us in June that he wanted to preserve what Bodacious originator Roland Lindsey had started.
"I want to serve quality barbecue consistently," he said. "And, I want us to be one of the Top 50 Barbecue Joints in Texas with the original location."
He hasn't made that list yet, but with the spot on the new and improved list and a 4.25 rating back in August, it would seem he's on his way.
For those excited for the new list, Vaughn writes that it is slated for release in the summer of 2017.
