DALLAS (KDAF) — When you think of eating in Texas, what foods come to mind first? Tacos, fajitas, steaks, well sure, but if some good ole Texas BBQ doesn’t pop into your mind, then you need to get to eating this heavily-desired cuisine.

We checked out a report from Far & Wide on the best signature food in every U.S. state and Texas’ pick is of course in the world of BBQ. Smoked brisket is the top-tier choice when it comes to dining in the Lone Star State.

“All Texas barbecue is delicious, but the state’s smoked brisket is particularly delicious. The Lonestar State has four different regional styles of smoking beef brisket, and you honestly can’t go wrong with any of them,” the report said.
