    Rodfair, I was hoping for at least one "authentic" recipe. It was a long read, but interesting, in an appetizing kind of way. I want t come back to Texas, but retirement circumstances almost prohibit it.

    But when I was delivering in Irving twice a month, I feasted! Surprising how many real nice Tex-Mex joints had parking space for that truck.

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    For some reason, it reminded me of the European Union's regulations on what could be called 'cheese'.

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    A good read. My most disappointing trip to a eatery ever was in Corpus Christi, where a Authentic Mexican Food place had just opened. True Mexican dishes have the European Influence of Spain, and as such are relatively bland in comparison to Tex Mex. It is like the true Mexican/Spanish food had never heard of peppers of any kind nor Cumin, and it just wasn't very tasty.

    A couple of Authentic Mexican food places have tried to make a go in Lubbock, but I think the average Lubbockite prefers Tex-Mex.

    I agree with the author about general frequency of eating smoked brisket in comparison. I eat Tex Mex weekly, with the typical numbers of Chicken Fried Steaks, hamburgers and other standard fare menu items, but only partake of Smoked Brisket about once a month. I do smoke other meats besides just brisket. Beer can chicken is a favorite, as well as turkey breasts.

    Lubbock doesn't have a lot of variety for entertainment, and eating out fulfills a large amount of the lack of entertainment for folks here, and our populace is always ready to try any new eating place, but you better have all your i's dotted and t's crossed or you will not survive.

    I think most orf us have seen a lot of additional cuisine development over the past ten years than we have in the previous 50, but Texas Chili will always be without beans, unless you are from a poor family who needs to extend the meat in such offerings with a filler. Smoked brisket will always be the Texas favorite with sauce on the side, not mopped and baked onto the meat.
