People travel across Texas to try our award winning ‘cue! When you’re lucky enough to get your hands on some juicy brisket or tender ribs that have been perfected over generations, you know you’re not letting one single bite go to waste.

Turn last night’s leftovers into today’s breakfast with this simple recipe from Epicurious. This hash helps you clean out your fridge all while making a hearty meal. With a base of onion and potatoes, you can then swap in pulled pork, brisket, or shredded rib meat. It will make a great addition to whatever veggies you have on hand (also, don’t forget the fried egg on top!).
Give your brisket a new life with this extra cheesy and creamy mac-and-cheese recipe from Killen’s BBQ in Houston. This is not your average boxed mac from childhood! With smoked gouda, crispy bacon and cheddar cheese, Killen’s version is seriously over the top.
This Tex-ified pizza may not be Nonna approved, but it makes good use out of leftover pulled pork. House of Yumm uses barbecue sauce instead of marinara, and loads it with bits of bacon, melty cheese, red onion and, of course, pulled pork.
Did you know that sausage could double as a dessert? Straight from the barbecue capital of Texas, these sweet-and-savory donut bites from Black’s BBQ in Lockhart are the perfect dessert for all you carnivores out there. Simply drizzle bourbon on your slices of sausage and set them aflame to caramelize the fat (and burn off the booze). Then, coat them in maple syrup and sandwich them in halved donut holes!
Tacos and barbecue are the quintessential foods of Texas and The Peach Tortilla in Austin marries these two favorites into one epic taco. Here they show you how to make your own brisket at home, but if you already have some leftovers on hand, all you have to do is make the apple slaw and peach bbq sauce!
