Will and Nicole Buckman quickly established CorkScrew BBQ as one of the finest barbecue places in the Greater Houston area. Technically, it’s in Spring, but that shouldn’t stop anyone not in the immediate area from planning a road trip. It’s well worth it to have one of some of the best brisket in the area. They use red oak for smoking, which lends the kind of flavor lovers of real Texas barbecue crave. Interestingly, their smoked turkey has many fans as well, as does the chicken. The potato salad is a winner. Baked beans tend to be on the sweet side. Some people like that and some don’t. The only covered seating is under tents outside, so in inclement weather, think seriously about taking your order to-go. They have a pre-order menu for whole meats and sides, too, which is handy if you’re feeding a crew.
