In the small town of Waxahachie, a short drive south of Dallas, is a great barbecue joint that is well worth the detour off I-35E to enjoy – called Harris Bar-B-Que. Kelvin Harris has been producing his brand of Texas ‘cue for a number of years now. And I’ll tell ya, he’s got it down pat, producing this flavorful stuff all on his reverse-flow pit out behind the store. The brisket was moist and smoky, with a super dark bark (gotta love that!). The sausage was very nice. And the pork ribs were really good. I tried the potato salad and coleslaw, and both were very tasty. And the perfectly-toasted Texas Toast was a great addition.
Side note – when you go, you cannot miss the absolutely beautiful and historic Ellis County Courthouse in downtown Waxahachie.
