Clyde Biggins Celebrates Memorial Day And Barbecue In West Dallas

May 27, 2013

Texas barbecue is more popular than ever, and some local barbecue establishments have received much acclaim for their smokey meats and flavors. But not all the best barbecue is found in restaurants. Clyde Biggins sells his tenderly made barbecue by the side of the road in West Dallas, in the neighborhood where he was raised.

Clyde used to have two successful restaurants in the neighborhood back in the 80s, but lost it all after being sent to prison for drugs for more than 17 years. Now he's back to remind North Texans why he is a barbecue legend. Producers David Chong and Carol Shih present this audio portrait of Clyde Biggins.
