Real Texas barbecue: five types of meat (brisket, turkey, sausages, pulled pork, spare ribs) smoked in house and served simply. Adamson Barbecue claims it’s the only joint in town that stays true to the Lone Star style. “Texas barbecue is unique in that it’s all about the meat,” says co-owner Adam Skelly, who’s been smoking stuff since 2013 for his catering company, Stoke Stack. “We’re not trying to cover it up in sauce or sugar, and we’re not trying to make creative fusion dishes—we’re just trying to make meat really well.” As per Texas style, they use real wood, not pellets, and say their prized menu items are their brisket, ribs and sausage. “That’s how any decent barbecue place is measured down in Texas,” says Skelly.
