The idea for the Smokehouse started here in Farmington, Connecticut, in 2007, when the Flagg family escaped from New York in search of a slower and more serene lifestyle. After a few months, and numerous failed attempts searching for true Texas style bbq, I decided to call my dad, Herschel (Pop) Flagg, out of retirement. He left the sweltering heat of San Antonio, Texas and brought with him the secret Flagg family recipes to Farmington. The Flagg family recipes have been handed down for three generations. Papaw Flagg passed on to my father, Herschel, his recipes that have since been passed on to me. After years of urging from family and friends, my dad started his smokehouse in Boerne, Texas in 1988. "Podnas" opened its doors and the Flagg style of Texas BBQ was introduced to the world. Now some twenty years later with the help of Pop, I opened Flaggstead Smokehouse in Farmington hoping to pass on the Flagg legacy to my two little ones. We hope you enjoy eating our BBQ as much as we enjoy making it for you! See yall soon.
Arrived just before noon on a Saturday. The order taker seemed confused. And they were already out of cornbread - a staple! Pulled ribs were hardly that, square chunks of rib meat loaded with cartilage from the part you d normally throw away. Dry too. Brisket was a generous sized serving but loaded with gross fat which should have melted off if properly smoked. At least the food preparer should have removed it! Texture looked right but nevertheless dry and devoid of ANY smoked flavor. While sauce was put on the ribs , the brisket was ignored. Go figure. The table was not well cleaned and the floor underneath was more slippery than glare ice! Eeeeeew. Garlic mashed potatoes were good.
Tonite we had dinner at the Flaggstead Texas Smokehouse. It was very good. We visit Texas often and always have to have the ribs, etc. when we are there. Now we will be able to enjoy this menu often. Potato salad and cole slaw were excellant.
