The Top 25 New Barbecue Joints in Texas - 2019 edition

One good barbecue article (@Root-Beer Man) deserves another so here's a mid-term update - since the last Top 50 list was published way back in 2017.
 
https://www.texasmonthly.com/bbq/top-25-new-barbecue-joints-texas/
 
Of the ones in the Houston area (Bellaire, Richmond, Montgomery) I've heard of all of them except the one in Montgomery.  I haven't been to any, though.  As for the rest of the list, not only have I not heard of most of them, I've lived in TX most of my life and never heard of some of these towns " />.

    I truly wish that one of them would serve minced whole hog.
     
    That said, after 14 years of living here in Texas I am beginning to appreciate 'distinctions' in smoked brisket, yet I still prefer ribeye or filet.  Amazingly, the latter are presently often served at lower price points!

    Feges has been mentioned as doing whole hog.  I don't see it on the menu but did find this picture on Yelp:

    According to Kevin G. who posted the picture in March, 'Whole hog is now on the daily menu.' 
     
    Is this what you mean?  I've heard of the minced pork (sandwiches?) but never had one.

    Sounds really interesting.

    This issue of the Smoke Sheet says Cattleack in Dallas has it occasionally.
    Their rest of the menu looks pretty tasty too.

    We will be back in Big D the first weekend in February.  Hey, that's when Cattleack BBQ will be open on a Saturday.  What a coincidence!

    Yes, I do.
    And I will have it along.
    Though I will also sample some of theirs.
    I'll coordinate further via PM.

    Schlotz, you’ve been there? They sound like Smokin’ Guns in KC, competition winners who open a brick and mortar shop with (very) limited hours.

    Not yet.  A few weeks back I checked out the user ratings and they were all over the place - now, mostly 4s and 5s.  Stand by.

    Yes...I've been there several times - most recently when buffetbuster and Cousin Johnny were making their Texas tour.  MetroPlex Jim and Mrs. Metro were also able to join us.
     
    They have a limited schedule - Thursday and Friday weekly - and Saturday once a month.  The lines are typically long at open (45 minutes - 1 hour+).  If you want to arrive early, 20 minutes is the sweet spot.
     
    All of their selections are top notch - brisket, ribs, sausage (typically 2-3 selections), pulled pork.
     
    They also do a rotating special - smoked wagyu ribeye, smoked homemade bologna, boudin, brisket hand-pies (QtPies).

    How bout that!  I'll pencil that in on my new calendar!
