By Linsey Thut | May 26, 2017

Well, it happened again – Texas Monthly’s dropped their Top 50 Barbecue Joints list and the world went crazy. Not only did we get some new ideas for future trips, but we’re drooling over the sweet memories of moist meats, heavenly scents, and barbecue comas that we’ve experienced at some of the joints on the list that we’ve already visited, both on the show and in our free time!

To let you reminisce with us, we’ve compiled some clips and photos below. Check ’em out to experience these joints through the lens of “The Daytripper.” Just don’t lick the screen — you can’t taste these meats. Trust us – we’ve tried. But if you concentrate real hard, you can smell ’em….promise.
