Serious barbecue freaks (like me) were shocked, not to mention curious, when a little-known, only-open-Saturdays barbecue joint, Snow's BBQ, was named the best Texas barbecue joint in Texas Monthly Magazine's "100 Best Barbecue Joints in Texas" issue. Soon after Snow's started shipping nationwide (Calvin Trillin's piece in the New Yorker on Snow's tipped us off) the Serious Eaters ordered some Snow's brisket, which turned out to be powerful good.
With the Super Bowl coming up, we're giving away 3 pounds and 7 ounces (a big old hunk) of Snow's fantastic brisket. Thanks to the good folks at Snow's, one lucky serious eater (and the seriously lucky friends) will score the tender, smokey meat for the big game. To enter to win, just leave your best barbecue haiku as a comment on this post. A panel of judges/wordsmiths at Serious Eats HQ will select the winner.
Contest will end and comments will close at 3 p.m. ET, Monday, January 26, 2009. One entry per community member. Winners are limited to residents of the continental U.S. Standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
