Plano, TX means mesquite-smoked BBQ.

I'm heading up to Plano, TX for the fourth of July this weekend to visit friends and family. It's a 3.5 hour drive from Austin, and when I get there I'm hoping to spend some time working on my future trips. I'm now simultaneously planning three different excursions, each at least two weeks long, and possibly a fourth trip to Lebanon in September. As always, details to be posted as they come.

As for right now, I'm working on the mother of all planning operations -- 4th of July BBQ. In Texas, you don't screw around with a mesquite-smoked brisket. I have a four foot tall smoker which I'm planning to haul up to Plano. I'm already made the trip to the farmers' market for some grass fed pork and beef, and I'll be using a six time champion ship rub recipe. Happy Fourth.
