Barbecue, served Seymour style
February 19, 2016 - bbq set
A few weeks ago, my friend and we embarked easterly on a Sunday expostulate to find a foodie destination. We finished adult stumbling on a good place and had a smashing time. So this week, my friend and we headed west in hopes of a identical experience. That is when we detected Smokey Bros BBQ and Grill in Seymour.
We were drawn to Seymour by rumors of a corner with glorious grill and burgers. As it turns out, a mythological place isn’t open for lunch, so a hunt continued. We gathering around city to import a options and finally landed during Smokey Bros (Perhaps we were subconsciously drawn to a smell of barbecue, or maybe we were only plain hungry.)
One thing we beheld off a bat is that Smokey Bros is good during recycling and repurposing. The grill is inside an aged Dairy Queen, and it looked like many of a seat and fixtures on a inside are from Chili’s. It was cold to see these things being put to good use.
Speaking of cool, a interior of Smokey Bros is only a place I’d wish to lay down and suffer some good barbecue. The front apportionment of a grill is a screened-in square with heavy-duty cruise tables and fans (an critical outdoor-dining underline during a Texas summers). Through a second set of doors, a place gets unequivocally cold with section walls and nation décor — including a huge, pressed boar conduct mounted nearby a table.
Another neat thing about this place was a bathrooms. They were purify and well-stocked, and a washtub penetrate with dual faucets was a cold feature.
The menu during Smokey Bros covers about each entrance one could design from a grill joint, and afterwards some. They, of course, offer a whole progression of grill meats, and many combinations thereof, though they also lift a few singular and strange items. we had to try one of these and motionless on a brisket pizza ($7.50). My friend systematic a two-meat combo with sliced brisket, sausage, and potato salad ($9.99).
The food arrived fast and was plated well. My buddy’s image came with both meats, potato salad, onions and pickles, and a cut of Texas toast. The brisket had a good, hazed season though was a hold on a dry side. The sausage had a identical story: good flavor, though a smidgen on a tainted side. The star of this plate was a baked-potato-style potato salad. It was tawny and left my friend wanting more.
I wanted something original, and we positively got it with my brisket pizza. The “pizza” wasn’t so most a pizza as it was brisket nachos. The plate consisted of shredded brisket and cheese atop a crunchy, boiled tortilla base. This was fun for a initial few bites, though afterwards a crunchy tortilla solemnly became a slimy tortilla and a whole plate got disorderly and tough to eat. And, unfortunately, my brisket suffered from a same predestine as my buddy’s: good season though dry.
The grill salsa on a list had a nice, mild, semisweet season though was a small diseased for my taste. we was looking for something with a small bit some-more of a spicy, hazed flog to it — something with a small some-more girth. But, alas, we did not find it.
One problem with perplexing to critique grill from another city is a fact that we are so marred with implausible grill here in Wichita Falls. When my friend and we eat grill anywhere in a country, we both always review it to a internal joints here. This might not be fair, and there might be some folks who aren’t crazy about Wichita Falls barbecue. But, in my opinion, when you’ve had a best, it’s tough to have anything less.
The grill during Smokey Bros might not be my favorite, though a place was packed, so it does have a fans. Along with a high traffic, a grill touts some cold musical facilities and was purify overall. So we give Smokey Bros in Seymour 3½ out of 5 forks.
