    Inside the Dallas Farmer's Market is the unassuming Pecan Lodge. We insist you get the brisket. [Eater 38 Member]

    The best brisket I've ever had. And the ribs weren't too shabby themselves. In the pantheon of smoked meat.

    Greatest brisket can be found at the Pecan Lodge!

    The chicken is brined overnight, single-coated in a flour mixture, and fried at a high temperature to keep it moist and crispy. The only seasoning: a pinch of onion powder and black pepper.

    The brisket is world class. That's just generally accepted. However, the beef rib was a real surprise. You order em one at a time, they weigh over a pound a piece and they're as good as the brisket.

    Plain mac&cheese, no dressing on the cole slaw, totally not worth the 2 hours wait on the line...

    Their fried chicken is crunchy on the outside and perfectly juicy on the inside. Mac-n-cheese packs good flavor without being heavy.

    If you want a smaller / cheaper (yet just as filling) option, get the Pitmaster. It comes with brisket and sausage.

    Unsure what all the hype is about, all the meats tasted like the were good on a gas grill, dry where it needed sauce, a lot of fat, and tastes like it was drenched gasoline :(
