Heim Barbecue is Fort Worth's answer to Franklin, Austin's hallowed barbecue spot. As they do at Franklin, people line up for Travis and Emma Heim's Central Texas-style barbecue — thick slices of brisket outlined in ribbons of crust and fat, meaty pork spare ribs, and snappy sausage. Heim's offers a unique menu item that no other Texas barbecue joint serves: bacon burnt ends. These are fun, bite-size pieces of pork belly — crisp and smoky on the outside, chewy and sweet inside. Right now, the trailer is only open three days a week, Friday-Sunday, starting at 11 am. They're usually sold out by 1. You might need a backup plan.
