Heim BBQ : Passport destination #1 of 50

FAIR WARNING: When reading Jacob’s comments about food, life or Game of Thrones, be FOREWARNED! He is not only vulgar, but 100% authentically foul. Eleni, however, not only disapproves, but vehemently denies all of his angst, for it is unwarranted on all fronts.

1. Eleni: loved the pork ribs

NOW for for the real deal, follow below as I give you my inside suggestions

2. Jacob: Bacon Burnt Ends are life. Mixing the Bacon Burnt Ends with the Mac & Cheese will be the best endeavor you’ve ever experienced. Also, get the brisket on the fatty side. It’ll give you a fatty/moist your shorts. Parakalo!! Before we go any further, Parakalo is a phrase that will be useful to know since I say it often.  To say ‘You’re welcome’  in Greek you would say Parakalo (Παρακαλώ). 

If you and your significant other decide to take on Yeti’s Top 50 BBQ Joints in The Republic, we highly suggest starting with Heim. This establishment will set the bar exceedingly high, just as any TX BBQ joint should. Be warned, this is nothing like Carolina or KC BBQ. Leave the sauce where it is. TX BBQ is all about the meat baby, so come with your eating pants!


Reasons for Doing TX BBQ CHALLENGE

The Yeti and Texas Monthly BBQ Challenge consists of a Top 50 Listing of the BEST TX BBQ joints. The Republic is well known for its Brisket, Beer and assorted sides that will take your mouth to FLAVORTOWN BABY. Jacob first saw this challenge thanks to Houston Sports Radio Legend, AJ Hoffman, who decided to take on the challenge in early 2017. Inspired by one of the co-hosts of the Greatest Show in the History of the Known Universe, The Blitz (catch them on 97.5 AM in Houston 4-7pm weekdays), Jacob decided that he and Eleni needed to stop by a few of the places that were on their way back to OKC from Houston.
