Scottie's claims to have "The Best Texas style barbecue in Orange Country!" Being the lovers of good BBQ that we are, we decided to check it out for ourselves. We arrived early and were able to choose our seating. The service was just excellent! Our server was friendly and helpful and guided us through the menu. She brought us all the little extras, including 3 different BBQ sauces (ranging from mild to extra spicy). Our food arrived promptly, fresh and hot.

Our appetizers included the Firehouse Wings ( a little on spicy side for us ) and Andouille Sausage ( just right ). For our sides we had Collard Greens, Mac and Cheese, Cole Slaw, Black Eyed Peas and French Fries. All of which were very good.

Sweetie Pie ordered the Smoked Meatloaf, which is smoked with a dry rub and can be enjoyed with or without BBQ sauce. We liked it both ways. Her mother ordered the Baby Back Rib and Sliced Beef Brisket Combo. The ribs were very meaty and tender, with a great smoked flavor. The meat falls off the bone , yet is moist and succulent. Scottie's brisket is the best we've ever tasted. It is sliced thick, and yet is so tender you don't need a knife to cut it. I had the Baby Back Rib and Smoked Chicken Combo. Everything was quite delicious, but the chicken was a little on the smallish side.

Tonight's Scottie's Smokehouse BBQ dinner gets two and a half thumbs up from the 3 Tubby Tummys.
