Every couple of weeks I've been cruising by the new location of Slow Bone BBQ, checking for signs of life. This is the joint started up by Maple & Motor owner Jack Perkins, located on the corner of Wycliff and Irving Blvd.
When word of the opening came out via CultureMap's Teresa Gubbins on January 1st, the Dallas food blogosphere lit up. After his highly successful run at the celebrated burger restaurant, Perkins was ready to take on the steadily improving Dallas BBQ scene.
I won't rehash everything that flew back and forth after Perkins basically said that cooking good brisket is pretty simple, but here's an excellent recap by Dallas Observer food critic Scott Reitz on City of Ate. If you're into the Texas BBQ scene, this was entertainment at its best.
