I haven’t had much luck in Ft. Worth to be honest.
A few places to consider (disclaimer I’ve not dined at any of them). I have them on my list to check out next time I’m in town. Listed on Texas Monthly’s Top 50 BBQ - Cousin’s BBQ, Longoria’s BBQ. Seemingly popular - Smokey’s BBQ. I’d avoid Coopers in the stockyards, disappointing.
I no longer put much weight on the Texas Monthly Top 50 list (at least in Dallas metro), about half of them listed in the Dallas area were pretty disappointing. The only 3 I’d recommend in descending order are Pecan Lodge, Hutchins and Lockhart BBQ.
I dined at Smoke a couple of years ago and found it decent, a more varied BBQ menu - appealing to a broader audience. Local’s seem to prefer the new location in Plano though.
good luck, please post any gems you come across.
