Moonie's Texas BBQ

Hands down, the best brisket in the ATL area continues to be in Flowery Branch at Moonie’s. I’ve written about them before.

In true Texas style you can just get a few slices of meats by weight. I stopped by at 3PM on the way to North Carolina when there was no one there and they had to crack open a new brisket for me. I went with the lean end – an amazing piece of lean is a beautiful thing. Not as fatty and nap-inducing as the point, it’s rendered perfectly, tender and smoky with nice spice (though not as aggressive as some of my favorite places in Texas).

Before you say the picture looks dry, it wasn’t dry. Again, not greasy, and nearly falling apart tender without being dry. It’s destination worthy in the Atlanta area.

Ribs aren’t too shabby either.

    Moonies is great! A bit south in Buford is Praise the Lard, which is also fantastic with homemade variety of sauces. They also have grit cakes, which are a perfect complement to BBQ.
