The Summer of Barbecue Trail

Take a drive and sample the best local barbecue

It’s no secret that most Texans love good barbecue. So when the idea came up to put together a trail of barbecue stops in our area, MidSouth Electric Co-op’s employees were quick to share their favorites. Some of them are known to many and others are well-kept community secrets, but we are sure this list of local barbecue restaurants and food trucks will hit the spot! Don’t just take our word for it; take a drive.

The Summer of Barbecue Trail

We had the chance to visit with Greg at Mallet Brothers Barbeque, Nick at Smoke Daddies and Bennie at Bennie J’s Smoke Pit, and we hope you get the chance to visit with them, too. These local business owners take pride in their craft and are happy to help feed their communities.

From countless sponsorships to catering events, you will find most of these businesses not only serve up delicious barbecue but also lend their support to schools, churches, first responders and area businesses. That’s a winning combination in our book! We hope you enjoy our Summer of Barbecue Trail.
