Hashknife on the Chisholm

Like a mirage in the desert, the Hashknife springs up out of nowhere at an otherwise unremarkable intersection just north of Mineral Wells. Pitmaster Jim McLennan and his wife, Lesa, have been in business here only since 2006, but Jim’s been serving up ’cue for oil field workers and nearby ranches since he was sixteen. We could taste the experience: His pecan-and-oak-smoked ribs were juicy and his vinegar slaw unparalleled.

City: Peadenville


Method: Pecan and oak; gas-fired smoker

Pitmaster: Jim McLennan

Pro-tip: Gargantuan loaves of yeast bread (just $5) are made using the proprietor's grandmother's recipe.
