Wild Boar

Feral hogs are considered varmints, or nuisance, animal and are not considered game animals in Texas. I've hunted and cooked a few on my smoker (after brining a day or two) and my wife really likes the meat. However, it's been a couple of years since seeing hogs where i hunt in SW Arkansas.

According to Texas Dept of Parks & Wildlife

". They may however, be legally transported to slaughter or livestock sale for slaughter."

However, to give you a definitive answer, i don't know of any local places that sell wild pig meat.

Looking for a good Mexican (tex-mex) breakfast place in/near Plano

Another fan of Chito's. Good food, good service and good prices.

Mexican restaurants in Dallas years ago (1960s-70s)

I always liked the food (and drinks) at Annie's Santa Fe (on Greenville & Park Lane, I believe.) It was a popular place to take a date when in college ('76-'78).
I liked the burritos and my dates always liked the strawberry margaritas.

Are there any *real* Cajun/Creole restaurants in Dallas?

Nate's in Allen closed. That location is now called Hook's Landing but i haven't tried it.

Best place to buy grills?

Haven't had any problems with low & slow on the BGE. However, i had learned a lot about fire control with my Weber Smokey Mountain. It's very easy to get to hot real fast with a BGE and harder to bring temps down since the ceramic holds in heat so well so i start out with a small fire (lump charcoal & a few chunks of wood) and regulate the airflow closely.

Best place to buy grills?

I have both a Weber gas and a charcoal grill (and a Weber smoker) and have always been very pleased with them (and weber customer service is great if you need advice or parts). However, i got a Big Green Egg last Christmas and the Webers are now basically in storage until my son gets a house. I LOVE my BGE and used it for everything.

Firehouse in Plano and Allen have a good selection & good sales people.

BBQ

Bodacious BBQ is an East Texas chain that's pretty good. Several on I-30 (i think Greenville, Sulphur Springs and Mt. Pleasant).

Denison/Sherman Options?

Jaymes-
Can't recall the name of your hole-in-the-wall restaurant but it's at the intersection of Lamar and Willow Street (east of downtown)

OO Barbeque (also on Lamar east of downtown) is good .

driving from Denton , DFW? & Babe's?

Babe's in Sanger is worth the drive and if you like Cajun, Frilly's is a good choice.

Where to buy Louisiana sausage in DFW?

Brookshire's Grocery stores sometimes carry Manda brand sausage (I've found it in the Allen and Wylie stores). I'd call first but have gotten the regular, spicy & green onion sausage at the Wylie store.
