As a long-time Texas barbecue aficionado, I've frequented all the top-rated joints through the years---Smitty's Mkt, Black's, Kreuz Mkt. (Lockhart), City Market (Luling), Southside, Meyers (Elgin), Louie Mueller's (Taylor), Hard Eight (Stephenville), Cooper's (Llano, Mason), to name a few. It's been a long time since I've run across one that can compete with them. But last weekend, I attended an event that was catered by a new name, Flying M Bar-B-Que. The brisket and pulled pork were excellent. I judge on the basis of whether it needs sauce or can stand on its own-flavor, melt-in-your mouth tenderness, right combination of lean & fat. The Flying M Bar-B-Que definitely passed the test and may well be added to any top-rated list. Give it a try, you'll be mightily impressed! -- Thomas Allen

I recently attended an event where Mark catered. Simply put, the food was outstanding. It was clear that there was considerable attention to detail and care taken in the preparation and presentation. I plan to utilize his service the next time I have an event. --Steve W.

I had the pleasure to eat some of the homemade BBQ made and prepared by Mark McNeill at a farewell dinner for people from my workplace.  I would first like to say that the brisket, chicken, and chopped BBQ was very well prepared and the presentation was excellent.  Being from North Carolina, where pork is king I grew up eating chopped pulled pork BBQ.  The pulled pork prepared by Mr. McNeill brought me back to my childhood.  The taste was exquisite and the homemade mustard and vinegar sauce was truly a match made in heaven.  After living in Texas for some years, I have learned that beef brisket is king down here.  I have ate at various places to include chain restaurants and local places and I usually always get the brisket.  One of my favorite places for brisket is Rudy's BBQ.  I can honestly say that after eating the BBQ brisket from Mr. McNeill, it was better tasting than Rudy's.  There was not as much fat on the brisket and the flavor was out of this world.  I chose to use the homemade traditional type of BBQ sauce on the brisket and it was amazing.  I didn't get a chance to eat the chicken, as I was already full from the pulled pork and brisket.  I would definitely recommend this BBQ to anyone who is a fan of good old fashioned homemade BBQ.  You will not be disappointed.       Sincerely, Nathan A.

I had the pleasure of eating some of your great BBQ at a farewell of some co-workers recently. The pulled pork and the brisket were the best I have had. The flavor and the tenderness were top notch. The homemade sauces were also excellent!   If you ever open up a restaurant, let me know and I'll be one of the first ones there!   Robin Crockett

I ate BBQ that was made by Mr. Mark McNeill.  He made BBQ to feed a party of 45 people. Mark had smoked three different types of meat: Chicken, Pork and Brisket.  All of the meats were moist and flavorful.   The chicken was fully cooked, and not dried out; the meat was juicy/moist.  The chicken was very tasteful. The pork was made into Pulled Pork. The Pork was not covered with sauce. The naked meat tasted very good. Adding the South Carolina style sauce really augmented the flavor. The brisket was tender and moist.  The brisket was not burned or hard. The meat did  not need any sauce to accompany it; it was delicious.   He also made three sauces for the different meats: a white sauce, BBQ sauce, and a South Carolina style BBQ sauce. Each sauce was distinctly different and did not overpower the meat, but complimented it.   Outstanding job.  I would and will recommend his BBQ to anyone.     Francis "Jon" Davidson Take care & God bless!
