Did you know you can get this shipped anywhere in the country?
4. Rudy's Country Store & Bar-B-Q
Yes, yes, we all know it's a chain. We all know that some of the outposts are better than others. And we all know that sometimes, when Rudy's gets it right, it's really, really right. And we are talking about underrated barbecue here, not the best in the city. Rudy's often gets the shaft for being a chain, but the fact is the big red barn that's part convenience store, part barbecue mecca smokes some mean meat. Check online reviews to see if the one nearest you is one of the better ones, or take commenter
henblair's word for it: "Rudy's on the Gulf freeway in League City has really first rate brisket, and at a fair price, too."

3. Blood Bros. BBQ
For most of the polling period, Blood Bros. BBQ was at the front of the race. I think it might have lost some momentum due to the fact that Blood Bros. doesn't actually have a restaurant. For now, the much-talked-about barbecue is only available at the occasional pop-up or for catering gigs. Still, the boys behind it--brother's Robin and Terry Wong, owners of Glitter, and their chef and friend Quy Hoang--see big crowds come out when they serve the public. The next time will be May 24 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Buffalo Bayou. Don't miss what reader jl.hunter3 calls "some of the best on the planet." Jl.hunter3 adds, "They do it right. No fuss no muss just good eating especially the brisket." Other commenters echoed that sentiment, calling the smoky flavor of Blood Bros. meats the best in town.

Corkscrew BBQ in the Woodlands/Spring is the hidden gem of BBQ in the Houston area. Long lines and selling out quick means get there early and bring your appetite!

Blood Brothers are @ Buffalo Bayou on 5/24? Where on Buffalo Bayou? It's extremely long.

The Brisket House must have you guys on the payroll. Seriously, brisket house is not over or underrated. It's just not good bbq.

The Bakers Ribs up here near Dallas are horrible. I hope the Houston one is miles better, because I can't eat this slop.

Everyone on this list and even ones that aren't on it have great BBQ right here in Houston.
