Barbecue report: Stop 6 Bar-B-Que in Fort Worth
Might want to wear earplugs to this place.
FORT WORTH The music at Stop 6 Bar-B-Que could be heard from the compact parking lot. It was so loud I thought a club scene might greet me on the other side of the thick metal door. Instead, there was a young girl at one of the few tables with textbooks and a notebook out trying to do her homework. The boom-box in the corner was literally blaring into her ear while she tried to study, and it was just uncomfortable to watch.
The ordering process was just as difficult. A few lines were exchanged at an all-out yell before it was determined that they were out of their homemade sausage. I opted for hot links, brisket, and ribs.
None of the meat had much smokiness. The beef was tender as if baked, but the generous portion of fat within each slice was chewy. The ribs were fall-apart tender, but the meat's flavor was covered up with the sweet sauce. The best option was the hot link. Sliced in half lengthwise, these links had a great snap and the flavors were well balanced. A little black pepper heat was evident, but they weren't really too hot. My next visit will be a sausage sampling with these hot links along with some of that homemade sausage. I'll just wear some ear plugs and arrive with a written order.
