SETX, Lies and BBQ
A recent article in the local (Beaumont) newspaper is so full of shit - for one, it treats the best barbecue restaurant in Southeast Texas, JB's in Orange, as a footnote, and it claims that BBQ fans can't find good smoked BBQ in Southeast Texas, which is completely untrue. These so-called BBQ "expert"s say - “You’re not gonna get a lot of smoke" in SETX barbecue. "In Central Texas, it’s all about the smoke" "If you want Central Texas ’cue, go to Central Texas" - First of all, JB's in Orange has been smoking BBQ for more than 40 years. Secondly, believe it or not, Orange is still considered part of Southeast Texas, so we don't have to go anywhere else. And finally, who the hell calls BBQ "cue" anyway?
