We've selected ten places in our viewing area to feature for our Pitmaster BBQ Week on 12 News Daybreak.
We know there are several other savory options in the area that may be your particular favorite, but listed below are the spots selected to take part in this week's friendly competition.
We'll travel from Jasper to Bridge City this week trying to find the best pit smoked brisket and ribs in Southeast Texas.
Our first stop on Monday was with Garry Richards with Billy Joe's BBQ in Port Neches and Emily Swanson at Boomtown BBQ in Beaumont.
On Tuesday morning, we feature Caroline's Quality BBQ in Kountze and West Texas Style BBQ in Silsbee.
The women in SIlsbee were not mean at all, but they sure are tough, unlike their brisket and ribs that just fall off the bone!
Wednesday morning was all about Orange County. Above you can see our segment from The Hut off 16th Street in Orange. We also checked out an up and coming restaurant in Bridge City called Rock's Spot BBQ on Texas Avenue.
Thursday we went to Nederland to check out the smoked meats at the Butcher's Corner on Boston Avenue.We also wanted to note that in the voting below, Doug Nelson's Cafe is going to be feature later in the week, NOT Don Nelson's! So if you love Doug's brisket and ribs, or any of the listed pitmasters, then go ahead and vote down below.
Last but not least!@12NewsLance wants to know who has the best brisket and ribs. Results Friday morning on Daybreak #UPwithUS— 12NewsNow (@12NewsNow) May 15, 2017
