I think this was pretty much right on. Closest I've found or heard of. Keep trying though. There are a lot worse things then trying lots of BBQ places.

Actually, the closest I've come across it Rudy's. They have the mustard-style BBQ sauce...my husband hates it!

If anyone knows where that can be found in this part of TX, I would like to know as well.
Oh, man, if you find a place that does a real Brunswick stew please let me know, or update this thread. I am from GA as well and can't find any place that does one, even a poor imitation of it.

Your best bet is to drive over to east Texas, a lot of little bbq joints with pork and Carolina style sauce.

It isn't carolina bbq, but we went to Hard 8 BBQ in Coppell last night and it was absolutely wonderful. I got the brisket and it was easily the best I've ever had, very moist. My husband got ribs and sausage, the sausage was to die for. The sides were pretty good too, but the meat is what it was all about. Highly recommended!

Hmmmm... Carolina-style BBQ? We are newbies to North Texas, but used to live in Greensboro NC, so we are familiar with that style and, as noted in a prior post, C-BBQ seemed to use a lot of pork and if I recall correctly, beef also.

That said, the difference I recall between, NC/SC/GA BBQ and that of TX and or KCMO, is that in the former, there was a bias for vinegar based and mustard-type sauces, in addition to the rubs sauces found here....

While we do miss those aspects of the Carolina experience, we have found that places like Hard 8 BBQ in Coppell are pretty darn good...
