I bought one of their brisket sandwiches and the after taste in my mouth tasted like someone had dumped an ash tray in my mouth. Garbage…

You have to pay extra for the ashtray dumped on top of it.  Next time tell them to hold that.

Seriously tho, its not gourmet by any stretch but... I've never had "bad" brisket there.

I've tried it a couple times and it was always smothered in a disgusting sauce that overpowered everything.  My grandpa taught me that you only cover bbq in sauce when it's low quality bbq. Quality bbq doesn't need sauce.

Found myself in Alabama last weekend.  Went to a rib place in Birmingham called Dreamland, which had great reviews.  Worst damn ribs I've ever had in my life.  Couldn't gnaw enough meat off the bone to get a full bite.  Bucees was the best barbecue I had the entire time I was there, so in my mind, it's the best brisket in Alabama.

Gas, turkey melt, jerky, and deer corn is just about all I ever buy at the one down the road from me.

This is a losing battle, defending the okay to pretty good nature of a local chain gas station

Some guy on the internet tells you all the food you've eaten half your life is worse than dog food. As if he's lived his entire life in the bistros of paris and lyon

By reasonable standards it is pretty good, or at least acceptable

But you need to answer for ANY bad sandwich

The old saying “It’ll make a turd” can be used here. It’s probably in between Rudy’s and Dickey’s which saying much. It’s a shame some people think it’s a good example of Texas Bar B Que.  There are hundreds of places that make better Bar B Que than them.

Funny, I just had a similar experience.  I flew out to NC for business and decided to go down to Alabama to see a friend.  On the way I stopped at a supposedly good BBQ place in SC and had a platter of brisket and pork, and wasn't impressed with either.

The next day I stopped at Bucees to get gas and decided to give their pork sandwich a try.  It wasn't the best I have ever had but it was good, way better pork than I ate the night before.

Most of us don't expect to find good brisket at convenience stores. The only place you consistently find good food at convenience stores is south Louisiana.

I don't mind the meat so much, it is just under Dickie's brisket, eatable but not what I would call "good" Texas Brisket.  The worst part is actually the bun.  They use some really shitty chalky buns, that is what OP is probably talking about.  Seriously, the store brand buns at family dollar are better.  With as much as they charge for a simple brisket sandwich, they should have epic bread.

My wife and I had BBQ in Huntsville , AL , years ago.
She ordered brisket.
When it came out, she told the server that she had ordered brisket, and the server told her “this is brisket”.

Wife replied “ we’re from Texas, and no it isn’t”.

Is it OK for gas station food?  Yes.  Is it the greatest ever?  No chance.  

We have a great BBQ joint my buddy owns.    One of my friends finally went there and texted me what should he get.  Told him everything is great.  He got a brisket sandwich and said it was better than Buccees.  I said if that's your standard, it won't take much to top it.

Wait, you mean to say a 7$ gas station bbq sandwich isn't the pinnacle of the art of smoking meats?

It is what it is, and it's pretty good for what it is.

The Rule is, if they don't have a smoker, they don't have BBQ.

The meat is drenched in wayyyy to much sauce.  Probably to hide the fact that it doesn't have a lot of flavor to begin with.

I only get the sliced brisket when there and it has always been pretty good.  They sell who knows how many brisket sandwiches a year, odds are there will be a few bad ones along the way.

Dreamland is shit. Not sure who they bribbed to get top spot but guessing their presence in Tuscaloosa made a difference in Tide country.  Full Moon is the best chain bbq imho. Lots of amazing smaller places. Bob Sykes is great. Golden rule (now archies ) - but they dont do ribs.

you are correct my friend. so dreamy.

It’s been said a few different ways here
Buccees is a gas station and these are basically premade gas station chopped beef sandwiches.
Chopped beef brisket sandwiches are typically pre sauced and bucccees goes a little heavy on the sauce sometimes and the sandwiches although usually fairly fresh still soggy the bun some.
So it’s a good snack on the run with obvious limitations but not even near what a Rudy’s would give you.
Pretty close to a chopped beef experience at Bill Miller.

Buccees - amazing because  there’s
Always a pump available for gas
Always a clean bathroom available
If you can’t find a souveneer or a decent snack, you can’t be pleased

But it  ain’t tier 1 bbq.

I was really underwhelmed by it. It's not bad as they managed not to overcook the shit out of it but the sauce and bun were beyond average. If THAT'S their flagship draw I dont get why people rave about it. The jerky was pretty good though and the beaver nuggets were fun but felt like I was eating straight diabetes. Clean bathrooms were the only thing I was really impressed with. Leave it to the South to have a dedicated fandom to a truck stop brand.
