I stopped by the R. McCoy place this past week... I didn't get any Q though. The meat looked as bland as the menu on the LCD screens (looked like a Word doc on a TV). Decor really does affect your hunger and perception. The place was new and squeaky clean... reminded me of a cafeteria than a BBQ joint.

The word BBQ is a misnomer to be frank. I stopped in, but it was gas station food for sure. Nice folks, clean restaurant and good portions on both the chopped beef sandwich and sides. Chicken is better than the Q, but it was all edible I guess.

I didn't bother talking up the person behind the register at R. McCoy's in fear of having to buy food from them. I am sure their pit is gas fired or electric!

Hey, do the Britt's guy a favor and specify when you're talking about the other place. If you pop in here and just read the last couple of posts w/o taking time to read further, you'd get the impression that Britt's isn't worth a hoot...when you're actually talking about some other place.

It's easy to get lost in these threads...I just would hate for a hard working fella to lose a potential customer, or two.

That brisket and sausage looked great! Wish it wasn't a 1,300 mile drive...one way!

Valid point... the post took a turn at R. McCoy's.

Will be up in the area today, going to stop by with the family in a bit for a test bite.

I did! Brisket was flavorful but a tad dry, but it was 3pm when we got there so it's not surprising. The ribs were HUGE and good. My 3 year old loved them.

The meat had a stronger smoke flavor than I'm used too, but I quite liked it. What kind of wood are you using Britt?

Had a small sampling of the "regular" sausage since the wife doesn't like heat. Not bad, but if I had been solo, I would probably done the pepper version.

If I'm up that way and get a hankering for some Q I would probably grab a sandwich.

It looks like oak to me. Britt told me he rents the land from the guy who owns the acres behind him. Lovely view while you eat his BBQ.

Well, I was driving by to Farmersville and saw Britt’s corner on Lowery Crossing vacant. Checked his FB and it’s been pulled. I tweeted to Daniel Vaughn about his place back in the summer hoping he makes a visit. The place needed more traffic I guess.

I sent him a message to his Brethren profile when I noticed that a couple of weeks ago. I never hear back. I couldn't post here since the thread was too old. I had hoped it was just a seasonal closing for the winter, but I doubt it.

He joined July and has not logged in since early August. Hey. maybe I'll find his rig for sale on CL. It looked pretty well built to me. But I also noticed some road construction at the intersection he is sitting on so maybe it's just being rezoned.

Is Britts open now? I am visiting Little Elm/frisco for a week, and I would stop by for lunch today if I knew they were open.

No, all equipment and the food shack are gone. Hutchins in Frisco would be great but they are closed on Tuesday. Hutchins in McKinney is still closer that Britts, and has some of the best Q in the Metroplex.
