There are few things more American than laying down a red and white checkered tablecloth and then heaping piles of meat upon it to celebrate Labor Day, or any warm-weather holiday for that matter!
From a variety of meats and poultry to classic sides like mac & cheese, potato salad, coleslaw and creamed corn, America loves its BBQ.
But depending on where you live, you’re likely to encounter a different kind of BBQ than elsewhere.
Texas is part of America’s so-called “Barbecue Belt.”
The area stretches from Texas to the East Coast. Many folks divide it into four main styles of American barbecue: Carolina-style, Memphis-style, Kansas City-style and Texas-style. Each is named after the state or city where the style was formed.
Of course, there’s variations and more than just the four main styles, but we’re going to focus on the best style from the best state ever created – Texas.
Texas-style barbecue is all about that beef! We’re especially known for our smoked brisket. That delicious cut of meat from the lower chest of a cow. It’s a very thick cut of meat and requires long cooking periods at lower temperatures.
At Meyer’s, we don’t use BBQ sauce when cooking. Instead, we use a mix of herbs and spices called a rub.
Because we’d prefer you taste the meat, the wood, and the seasonings we use!(But a dab of grandma Meyers family recipe bbq sauce on the side is a nice addition).
We even sell all our seasonings, spices, sauces and BBQ rubs online so you can indulge your cravings for delicious BBQ wherever you are.
In fact, we’ll ship you just about anything you could need for the perfect Labor Day cookout.
And if you’re nearby, you can use Meyer’s catering or come pick it up for your herd of carnivores so all you have to do is eat!
So, this Labor Day, get the cooler out and fire up the grill for one last run of glory before winter comes and we’re all stuck inside for two whole days of 45 degree agony.
