When we entertain out-of-towners who have never eaten barbecue, we start the introduction here. Goode Co. looks like what a barbecue place should be. You dine on wooden benches and tables, surrounded by stacks of mesquite wood. As for the barbecue, itsclean flavors are made to please the mainstream. That’s not an insult by the way. The juicy brisket and chicken are smoked with great care. And while many barbecue chefs have started experimenting with different woods – from pecan to apple – founder Jim Goode and son Levi remain true to their Texas roots by using mesquite. Goode Company also makes its own pork-and-jalapeno sausage and bakes its own biscuits and pies from scratch. This Houston institution was founded in 1977 by Goode, a savvy marketer blessed with a mother who could really cook. Some of the most popular recipes are hers, including the jalapeño bread.
Goode Co. Barbecue’s pecan pie is from Jim Goode’s mother. Her secret? The clever gal spiked it with vinegar and slowly baked it in a convection oven.
