I have yet to visit a SoCal based BBQ joint that can dethrone my current fave Bludso's in Compton. I have heard that Horse Thief serves Texas style BBQ and is supposedly good. So come join me at the Downtown LA Farmer's Market to give Horse Thief's BBQ a try!

From TimeOut LA:

"Angelenos get schooled on the ways of low-and-slow cooking, namely central Texas-style BBQ. Native Texans Wade McElroy and Russell Malixi—they met in school in Austin—bring their self-taught 'cue chops (and a trip of hickory smokers and elevated ingredients) to DTLA's historic Grand Central Market. With no more than a queue-and-order window and alfresco communal picnic tables, Horse Thief BBQ serves the local lunchtime crowd and hungry groups everyday from 11am to 4pm, or until sold out. 

As any good Texan would know, brisket ($6, 1/4 pound; $12, 1/2 pound) is the star here—dry rubbed and smoked for 15 hours over oak wood. (Sorry burnt ends fans, no charred tips here, just "moist" and "lean.") Pork fans can get their grub on pulled pork ($5, 1/4 pound; $9, 1/2 pound) and pork ribs ($12, half rack; $24, full rack), while poultry lovers can sink their teeth into brined and smoked chicken (Mary's organic, no less). A complete meal is packed on with the proper white bread, dill chips, chopped raw onions and fixings ($3, small; $6, large) of blue cheese and bacon potato salad, cabbage and jicama slaw and heirloom baked beans. Look out for soon-to-come daily specials, extended dinner house, desserts (think: drop biscuit cobbler and banana pudding), more sides (mac and cheese, creamed corn, skillet corn brad) and booze (as in local, craft beer and wine by-the-glass)."
