That’s pre-Covid. Now you can order in advance for pickup at a specific time. Too bad for the people who love setting the alarm clock to line up for hours.

Excellent brisket. Structured yet soft and jiggly.

Pro-tip warm it a bit longer than the recommended 75min @ 225F. I think maybe 90-95 mins instead.
It’s crucial for the fat properly to be properly warmed up for optimal enjoyment.

For bark aficionados, it is more prominent vs Snow’s. Although a bit too aggressively seasoned IMO, could probably take it down a few notches. I think Snow’s might be a touch more moist.

Can’t go wrong with either although Snow’s offers a more compelling QPR.

Upside of Covid. Home delivery option from all these legendary places.


Need to rewatch Franklin’s carving video again. Think I messed up by not carving against the grain on the moist end.

Franklin’s sold out on Goldbelly. Any tips?

I think you just have to check frequently. I manage to get the batch when delivery was initially announced a couple weeks ago.

I keep checking back and it’s always sold out. Now it also seems to be broken. I’m curious about that cake-pie hybrid.
