I've been thinking about ordering a Wagyu brisket for a special occasion, but I just don't know if I wan't to drop two hundo for a cut of meat I could frick up.

I just can't do a 200 dollar brisket.  I'd screw that up for sure.

The last one i did was good, but over rendered. It stayed in the cooler too long. I think the trick is to do a whole packer, get it to 203*, then wrap in butcher paper for an hour (Aaron Franklin style). It probably would've been perfect. I was at least happy that the flat wasn't dry and the point was rendered down.

I paid $40 for it at Harp's in Conway.

Yeah, I can do pretty good usually.  I just can't chance a 200 dollar mistake.  Just too inconsistent.

IMO best steak I've had in the area is a little place in Gravel Ridge called Ropers. They do a great job of seasoning their steaks and the ribeye is cooked as close to perfection as you can get.

How along was that?  I have heard the same thing and I tried it about a year ago, it was what I assume one of those new applebee's 10 dollar steaks taste like.

Try Max's Sports Bar in the South Main Arts District....One of the patrons told me that they draw a good crowd to the game because the owner is an alum.  It was raucous last year when I was there!  Of course, that was the Auburn OT game! :razorback:

Yeah go to Max's. If you are looking for something bigger I would try Hooters. Now that I think of it, the double j smoke house across the street from Max's has a really nice sports bar hidden upstairs.

There are plenty of places shortly after you cross the county line going to Shreveport.

The novelty is pretty cool, but I've never been impressed by the quality of the drinks.

TCU game: Where is the best place to park?
« Reply #18843 on: September 05, 2016, 12:49:15 pm »

I drove around the TCU campus on my last trip to Fort Worth.  I noticed some nice residential neighborhoods just north of the football stadium.  Is this a good place to park if you get there early? 

Is there a Hogville gathering of any sort taking place?  The TCU basketball arena has a nice museum and a food court area with lots of TV's that looks out over the football stadium. Looks like a good place to hang out and watch football while waiting in the pre game hours.

Not an easy venue for parking.  I would recommend getting there very early.  I think I got there about two hours before kickoff for the Armed Forces Bowl in December and parking was still an issue.
