Snow's BBQ Is a Texas Adventure

It starts with middle-of-the-night journey

The weekend after this past Thanksgiving, I woke up to the sound of my alarm blaring at 1:30 a.m. It was two days after I’d stuffed myself with buttermilk-brined turkey, three different potato dishes, and numerous sides with various amounts of butter and seasoning. Yet, here I was, getting dressed in the middle of the night to drive two hours from where I was staying in Houston to eat a hefty meal, yet again.

The place that required so much effort was Snow’s BBQ, one of a handful of legendary eateries in the Texas dining community. As a food writer from Houston, I’d become embarrassed that I hadn’t been to the cult favorite, voted Best BBQ by Texas Monthly in 2008, and featured on the Chef’s Table BBQ series.
