Holy Smoke BBQ (Texas Country Reporter)

You'll find some of the best BBQ in Texas at a little stand run by Annie Ward and members of the New Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Huntsville, TX (#650, 2/12/00)

If you can't see the building because of the smoke it means that you are in the right place
god bless holy smoke bbq

Another example of the church using people!
One of the times a group of us went there for lunch, we sat down at a table, and was told by Miss Annie that we couldn't sit there. She moved us to where she wanted us to sit! You didn't mess with that lady. God bless her sole.
BBQ is not Native American. Do some research & you will find it was brought to the US by european immigrants.
Right, I said Creole, which is a mix of African and French.
Never been there, but Coopers in Llano cannot be beat
nothing like Texas BBQ
@spccwby30 Who runs that place now?
@L00peey BBQ is not black people food, its Native American. Soul Food is a mixture of European, Native, Mexican, and Creole food.
I love my Texans.... glad I live here

Stopped in there this past weekend and really enjoyed the ribs and sausage BBQ plate! If I had the room I'd have gone back for a second helping of each! The ribs were especially good.

Glad to find this video on youtube! Ate there today and it was the best BBQ we've had so far on our Texas BBQ oddysey. Sorry we didn't get to meet Annie but fortunately she trained her staff well. The brisket and ribs were fabulous!
Some of the best BBQ in Texas. One of my favorite places to eat in college!!
Looks like some good stuff!

Trying to find the place can someone give me the directions.
Heck ! I'm from Canada and I understand her ! That food looks amazing. Wish I could have some locally here in KS.

Being from Huntsville, I can attest to the fact that this truly is the best BBQ I have ever eaten.
Now that was some dang fine lookin Brisket!
LAfresh, I know Liberty Hill, It's north of Austin with lots of Oak and Mesquite trees.....Nice place. I went a couple of times to this dance there. I met several hot human earth women there.......That was fun......Frio, First Science Officer.
I live in California, but my uncle used to live in Liberty, TX. And yes, I must admit, Texans must have BBQ'ing in there genes.
I miss Texas. THERE is NO good BBQ in Michigan.
I garden because I have to
Praise Jesus and pass the barbaque.
no what I was saying is that I'd defiantly am going to eat at Annie Ward's BBQ grill house if I will be driving by. But I would need a local interpreter to understand what she'd be saying, or use the good old pencil & paper method, and hope I can understand her hand writing :)

To gummi: Always gotta be one in the crowd! Just enjoy the comments from the "ppl" you did understand.

Ahh! The taste of bar-b-q from a rib shack. Better that those "Tony Romas";Rudy's; etc, and etc. I am from the south and you cant go wrong when you find a rib shack.

Damn. Old Ma still putting work in. May the Lord praise her..I mean bless her/
She says its good food and its worth the money. Thats all you need to know.
Well everyone... you really don't need to understand what she's saying to know what great comfort food is. And if more than one person seems to like it, and you can definitely tell from the smiles on their faces, well... ain't nothin' much left to do but grab a plate and try it out! :)
Can you actually understand her? I had to have it translated and I still do not understand the words she says.
Your luckier than most people in the world, to live in one of the better countries of the world. But if you can't understand her, perhaps it just because it one of those things. It's a pure all American thing, one has to have tuned in to it and aquired a feel for it. She's a throw back to the true and honored things that once used to be the heart of the character of this country. Scenes like that are rarer today, but still theres some. She's one of the examples of what made this country good.
well im from texas and I understood every thing she said.
