pig on a spit at Woodshed Smokehouse in Fort Worth Texas

There are many things we love about Texans, and their barbecue is high on that list. The next time you’re in Dallas, check out Cooper’s Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que, which packs a hot and spicy combination with their beef brisket, pork ribs and the “Big Chop,” a 2-inch thick pork chop dunked in vinegar and meat drippings. If pork and beef don’t get your glands salivating, then head over to Chicken Scratch Restaurant, The Revolver Taco Lounge, or Woodshed Smokehouse (Pictured above: slow-roasted pig on a spit) for their braised lamb belly with shallots and roasted garlic pureed in a bone broth. Yum! READ MORE

Robert Cook

Bob Cook’s streak of attending every Super Bowl game ended Sunday after he fell ill last Thursday and ended up in the hospital, where he remains in serious condition.

But the streak for his family remains in force, thanks to some creative crisis travel management by his wife, Sarah, and daughter Kylie.

Cook had received a lot of press in the weeks before Super Bowl XVL as one of 4 men who had attended every Super Bowl game. We posted a story about it last week. The others, Don Crisman, Tom Henschel and Larry Jacobson, made it to Dallas on Sunday to watch the Packers beat the Steelers and extend their Super Bowl streak to 45. READ MORE

Super Bowl weather

Football fans whose flights had been canceled scrambled Saturday to get to Dallas for Super Bowl XLV, while those already in town were dealing with frigid temperatures and over 5 inches of snow — twice Dallas’ annual average.

A fresh blast of snow and ice canceled hundreds of flights Friday, snarled highways and caused dangerous sheets of ice to cascade from the domed roof of Cowboys Stadium. The falling ice injured 6 workers hired by the NFL to prepare the stadium, though none of the injuries were considered life-threatening.

The problems in the Dallas-Forth Worth area capped off one of the worst weeks of winter weather in US history. To see how this week’s storm compared to some of the nastiest ever recorded, check out our Worst US Blizzards photo slideshow. And if you’d like to reminisce about a time when NFL championships were actually played outside in the “frozen tundra,” don’t miss our Life of Lombardi feature.
