2. Christopher's Smokehouse Barbeque 107 S Main St, Cedar Hill, TX 75104 (Cedar Hill)

Christopher's Smokehouse Barbeque may be a little bit of a trek South, but once you get there, the delicious brisket and St. Louis-style short ribs will more than make up for the trip.

3. Fat Cow BBQ 850 Valley Ridge Blvd, Ste 128, Lewisville, TX 75077 (Far North Dallas)

Maybe the amazing pulled pork won't do it, and maybe the creamy mac 'n cheese won't be enough, but if fat jalapeños stuffed with pulled pork and cream cheese before being wrapped in bacon don't get you to drive yourself up to Fat Cow BBQ in Lewisville, we don't know what will.

4. Hobbi's BBQ 5459 N MacArthur Blvd, Irving, TX 75038 (Irving)

Huge portions, a $5.99 lunch special, and Kool-Aid on tap make Hobbi's a pretty sweet little hole-in-the-wall to get some good BBQ eats.
