We don't eat a lot of fish in Texas, and to BBQ is sacrilege.

I will be giving it a try this weekend. I'm a rebel. I don't eat fish but my wife and kids do.

I'm also thinking of doing a pork butt. We don't do a lot of pork in Texas, but I'm tired of beef.

I might get shot for saying that.

I like it all. I don't like the idea of BBQ fish though. That makes me gag thinking about it.

I used my new smoker over the weekend and made some of the best pulled pork I have ever had.

Since I've lived in Texas since '75 and have eaten BBQ during all those years I find it odd you say it's mainly beef & we don't do a lot of pork. Most all BBQ joints I've been to here offer, brisket, sausage (which is usually pork), ribs more often pork than beef, & chicken. Many will do other birds, mainly turkey, and some will do cabrito (baby goat for you yankees).

This time of year folks will be doing dove wraps and when deer season starts deer sausage & whole wild pigs. Those would not be sold at BBQ joints tho but, at home BBQ's.

Personally I like doing up fish too, mahi mahi on the smoker for fish tacos, redfish on the halfshell and the trout I catch down on the guadalupe river during trout season. If I manage to catch one over 18" and it's a holdover that's a real treat on the smoker, very much like smoked salmon. Had grilled tilapia caught in Lake Travis last thursday for lunch, yum.

You have to forgive Austin, he lives a sheltered life.
