River City Smokehouse

Went to a restaraunt in Huntsville, Texas over the weekend. The New Zion Missionary Baptist Church's BBQ. Yes, it is on the Church's property. I called the phone number and the recording gives you Church service times and info and then breaks off to BBQ info. I thought that was too funny.:biggrin: What a place. Now this is REAL Texas BBQ. This place is rated in the top 10 for brisket in the state. Their sausage is the BEST. Ribs and Chicken could be better. Brisket is the best I've ever had. I sat down and vivited with the owner for quite a while and he shared a lot of really good info. I hope I can use what he showed and told me to better my brisket.

I've never been there but it's on my "gotta eat there" list. Here's a 7 minute video about it:

Thank you so much - we're relocating our church so maybe I can get the building committee to add bbq shack -

Change the sign from "Pastor Russ" to "Pastor and Pitmaster Russ"

Yes, indeed. Ate here and thought it was fantastic. Ate at the Pappas BBQ in S. Houston and tasted like I licked the smoker lid. Same holds true for good al pastor tacos in TX.

I saw them on a bbq show this weekend. Their brisket looked great.
