[Sniff] And the hommmme of thheee [sniff] bravveee.
For Hanna Raskin's latest review, before she whisked off to allergy-free Seattle, she tackled the Flintstones-esque hunk of meat -- which you must eat without fork and knife -- at Lockhart Smokehouse. According to Hanna, Lockhart fell short with the sausage and the ribs but blew the doors off of her (and Daniel Vaughn's) mind with the brisket.

Before you make the leap to check out Hanna's full review, we must share with you the above photo from contributor Sara Kerens: It's a true Texas barbecue anthem shot from Lockhart Smokehouse. Food porn blogs shall quiver in a weakening mass before this porky pile of ribs, sausage, jalapenos, deviled eggs, pickles and onion! We're tearing up just looking at it...

I don't understand the problem with the no forks policy. You can eat chicken, pizza, tacos, bruchetta, and a thousand other things without a fork. Suddenly, pulling a part a piece of juiscy brisket with your hands is a problem? The whole experience is like a picnic, You open up the paper with all the meat, take a swig of beer, and dig in. What's wrong with that? And yeah, hands down the best brisket in DFW now.

Your hands are your forks. This is from the gospel of the holy land of BBQ - Central Texas. If you are worried more about utensils and tea than the BBQ, you are clearly in the wrong state. Stick to Dickeys and get all the sporks you want.

You are always welcome to bring your own forks and sauce and happy neighborly attitude... oh and our facebook page has lots more photos!

some of the nicest people working at Lockharts.... I live down the street and had to try it out because everything else in Bishop Arts seems closed on Mondays. I told the guy it was my first time and he gave me 2 sausage links and an extra 1/4lb of meat for free! Food was pretty damn good and I loved the attitude of the workers there. Just real nice people...

Do they mind if you bring your own fork? I do that when I get dragged to Medieval Times.

I've heard they don't have fresh brewed iced tea. That, along with the ridiculous no-forks policy, is a deal breaker for me.

We are pretty disappointed in Lockhart's, too. A couple of pieces of yummy meat doesn't make up for having no forks, no sauce, and no waitresses. I wonder what will open up next in that cursed location?

Dallas is barely Texas and thats why the BBQ here is just mediocore, I respect the Lochartians to at least giving us a chance but I agree there are lots of folks here that are in the wrong state. I just hate to think people live/visit Dallas and then go home (back up north) and tell eveyone how Texas sucks without ever experiencing real Texas

Thanks! I'm good with eating brisket and sausage with my hands, just curious if there was a full-fledged ban on forks. I do suggest bringing utensils to Medieval Times still.

if you've seen where post peoples' hands have been, you'd be concerned, too.

You might as well get used to it. Although I'm not a huge fan, they're going to be there for a long time.

Yep, that's where we are, alright. Dallas, Texas. Big D. And I'm pretty typical. I'm hoping Italian will be there next year at this time.

for your sake i hope it's not a fast-casual italian place without waiters where you have to (gasp) carry your own food!
