The 2021 Top 50 list is here, and we know you have some questions. With so much great barbecue in Texas, you might be wondering what separates the good from the InterStellar. BBQ Bites, a new series from TM BBQ Club, aims to show club members what it’s like to be on the tasting team for the Top 50 list. From consistency to cooking methods to flavor profiles, barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn and fine-dining editor Pat Sharpe are breaking it down bite by bite.
