To really delve deeply in Houston’s barbecue scene – and to eat more than you think any one person should – sign up for a barbecue tour of Houston.

Houston’s Culinary Tours, a program of the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau, take visitors to the hidden-gem restaurants where the city's best chefs eat when they're not in their own kitchens. The five-hour tours have different themes, but one staple is World BBQ, which hits all the highlights of the local scene, from Asian barbecue to Mexican specialties to – of course – brisket. Tours often sell out, and advance booking is a must.
