2M Smokehouse – San Antonio, TX
There’s a special appreciation for barbecue and art at 2M Smokehouse at 2731 S WW White Rd., San Antonio, TX 78222. The hand painted murals are expressive and unique. While, this boutique barbecue joint has been listed in concurrent Texas Monthly Top 50 BBQ Joints, as well as TWO James Beard nominations! Congratulations! I, also have to express how I am impressed I am by the pitmaster, Esaul. He is amazingly talented, intelligent, has a big heart and drive for continuous improvement. To me, that’s what sets excellence apart.
Smoker: 1 Glorious 1000 gallon propane tank offset
Fuel Source: Real wood!!!
Style: Texas BBQ with a twist and in-house bake shop – OMG the greatest idea ever!!
My Favorite Meats: Brisket is perfectly rendered, I went for seconds, thirds, ahem, I finished it. I am a #brisketgirl AND succulent turkey <Yes, succulent!>
Coolest Sides Ever: Uber creamy Mac and Cheese topped with crushed chicharrones <move over! I’m not sharing this side>, Mexican Street Corn <that you can eat with a spoon, which is perfect>, Pinto Beans with a little kick and the pickles have a nice spicy bite of their own
Highlight: a BBQ joint with its own pastry chef??? O M G @greciasaniasramos is amazingly talented. I devoured the Ube flan (hence no pictures) and only partially shared the cheesecake
The Wait: So, I arrived a full hour before they opened on a Sunday. I was not the first in line! And the line never shortened the entire visit. 💯 worth it!
Thank you Esaul and Grecias, for hosting a delicious visit and great conversation! Love 2M Smokehouse!
