Just like Moses and his people wandered the desert, I've been traveling the back roads of this country on my own journey to the Barbecue Promised Land.  I'd have taken better notes had I known I'd be writing a book.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Goss Store


<<Update: RIP Luther Fleming Goss May 5, 1916 - April 30, 2009.  As of 2010, I believe the store had been turned into a restaurant.>>

MAIN FARE:Goss Store Spread

  • Brisket: Fatty cut is GREAT! Rub is not as prevalent here, but the meat has a good smoke/meat balance.
  • Spare Rib: Finally a rub with some spice! Very nice. I'm knawing at the rib to get all the meat off... keep coming back.
  • Sausage: There's some pork in this sausage... flavorful! Pork/Beef mix from Shiner, TX.


  • Sauce: Sweet sauce with a bit of spice on the finish.

ATMOSPHERE:Goss Store Crew

  • Heres a true 'joint'!
  • Fleming Goss runs this machine shop, convenience store, and BBQ... right next to the Belmont Post Office.
  • Has A/C in the dining room only.
  • Mr. Goss cooks with mesquite, oak, or whatever he's got.
  • He's expecting us, and provides a nice tour of his pit area.
