1. Add sauce to your BBQ.
Texas brisket is juicy enough on its own, so why would you want to mask the taste with BBQ sauce? The style may have started to hide the flavor of old meat with overly spiced sauce, but now that we’re living in the modern age, enjoy your BBQ as it is. Don’t embarrass yourself at Rudy’s.
2. Put chains on your tires.
It’s not as though this isn’t better for your safety in the one-in-a-million chance it ices over in Texas, but you’re setting yourself apart from the crowd. If you’re the only one in the state actually prepared for winter weather, that just makes the rest of us look foolish for canceling schools when it snows half an inch, or calling “sick” into work from fear of driving on the icy roads.
