Barbecue Returns to Pecan Lodge Catering in Dallas

I took my family to lunch at Pecan Lodge Catering on Sunday. We knew the barbecue operation had been halted for a while as owners Justin and Diane Fourton built a new smokehouse, but we have lots of other favorites on their menu. (The Hot Mess is ridiculously soothing.) Details on our experience will come in a later post, but this morning comes word that the Fourton’s are back in the barbecue business. On Saturday, they will start serving their, now famous, burnt ends along with new items such as homemade smoked sausage, pulled pork, and mesquite smoked brisket and ribs.

And they’re having a contest! And Sweet Tea flavored vodka from Deep Eddy!

“Deep Eddy Vodka will also be on hand to sample their amazing Sweet Tea flavored vodka. Pecan Lodge will be encouraging Twitter followers to tweet ideas for a Pecan Lodge t-shirt slogan with the hash tag #pecanlodgebbq. One lucky follower with a clever slogan idea will be selected to win the grand prize giveaway: Father’s Day BBQ Sampler for 10, featuring smoked brisket, ribs, sausage, pulled pork…and Burnt Ends.

Dallas Farmer’s Market, Saturday, June 11, 2011, from 11:00am to 3:00pm with free samples from their new BBQ menu. Pecan Lodge will post additional details about the festivities later this week via Twitter @pecanlodge and, including inside information about additional smoked specialties to be revealed for the first time on Saturday.”
