Doors open and doors close at Plano's Legacy Hall and this one's an opening: A new barbecue stand called Brisket Love BBQ will open on the first floor of the food hall, across from Velvet Taco, where it will serve smoked meats and sides with a focus on sandwiches.
According to a release, it'll open March 10.
The pitmaster is Enrique Salvador. The same Enrique Salvador who was pitmaster at Carlton Provisions. Which is what Brisket Love BBQ replaces. Oh yeah, Carlton Provisions is closed.
"Management felt this was a better concept for the Legacy Hall clientele thus the replacement," a spokesperson says.
Not unlike Carlton Provisions, Brisket Love has Prime brisket, pulled pork, smoked turkey, and jalapeno cheddar sausage.
