Texas Monthly has put out their list of the top 50 BBQ joints in Texas and not single Abilene place made the list or even the honorable mentions! The closest one to Abilene is Big Boy's Bar-B-Que in Sweetwater. I don't know what to say. I know Harold's has closed but I'm going to have to write some reviews for this area. My current favorite is JoJo's in Potosi but I haven't reviewed it yet because I didn't get a pic of my Jo-Ritto.
