I got a cheap Orbitz flight from Montreal to Palm Springs via Dallas. I had a 6-hour layover, which meant enough time for two meals.
  1. Railhead BBQ
    In concourse D. I got the three-meat platter; pulled pork, brisket and sausage. Surprisingly good! Brisket was very tender and smoky.
  2. Salt Lick BBQ
    753fcfd6 b776 4423 9b41 a94b9bd7540d
    The Austin-Bergstrom airport landmark, now in DFW! I got the taster platter; brisket, pork, and pork ribs. Lives up to the name and reputation of the real Salt Lick; sauce is unique, as usual. Beans are great, rest of the sides are phoned in.
  3. BONUS: Cousin's Bar-BQ
    Apparently a local Dallas-Fort Worth metro area chain. Now that I've had the other two, I kinda want to go for the hat trick. I'm flying back through Dallas on Monday. I could win the Triple Crown and be the American Pharaoh of Dallas airport barbecue. Stay tuned. UPDATE: this happened.
