I loved the flavors of these tacos especially the cilantro cream. The beef brisket was a bit dry though and I wished the tortillas were warmed up.

Slow smoked brisket, served with pit-smoked beans. $11.95

Mmm, I love the beef brisket at Mephis Minnie’s! It’s super tender and very flavorful. I will admit that some of the pieces were on the dry side this time around. They certainly put plenty of brisket in this sandwich. Noms!

Mr. Brisket sandwich - Roadside BBQ
Soaked for up to seventeen hours and topped with coleslaw and bbq sauce. Served with brisket baked beans. $8.95
Roadside BBQ, San Rafael CA

Mmm, this sandwich was delicious! The brisket was tender, flavorful, and had a nice smokey flavor. It was also great with the slaw on top. I think the bun was a little on the thick side – I like less bun for bbq. The baked beans were very tasty.

Brisket, smoked chicken, pork spare ribs, with B&B pickles, coleslaw, potato salad, white bread. $15
4505 Meats, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this combo plate was delicious! It’s a bit pricy for a food stand at lunch, but the meats are certainly quality. I was really surprised at how tender and smoky the chicken was. It almost looked undercooked, but it was so juicy and perfect. The brisket and spare ribs were also super tasty. Noms!

Certified black angus beef brisket – Baby Blues BBQ

Certified black angus beef brisket - Baby Blues BBQ
1 pound $19.75
Baby Blues BBQ, San Francisco CA

I was SO disappointed when I opened the to-go bag and found this tiny container of meat that cost me twenty bucks! But one pound of beef is actually a lot of food – it just looked deceivingly small in the container. The brisket was good, but I’m still not convinced that it should cost so much.

Holey smokes sandwich - The Cowboy Way BBQ
Brisket slow cooked with red oak and hickory, with Cowboy BBQ sauce, served on a fresh roll, side of Southwest macaroni salad. $11.95
The Cowboy Way BBQ, Palm Springs CA

OMG, I’ve found my go-to BBQ place in Palm Springs! The food here was amazing and very reasonably priced. The brisket was tender and smokey and the BBQ sauce was delicious. The light, spongy roll reminiscent of sliced white bread worked perfectly in this sandwich. The macaroni salad was unique, but I actually liked it. NOMS!
