Texas Monthly has released its list of the best barbecue joints in the Lone Star State, and a Fort Worth restaurant claimed the No. 1 spot.

Goldee’s Barbecue in southeast Fort Worth (nearly Kennedale) was ranked best in the state.

The restaurant is run by Lane Milne, Jalen Heard, Nupohn Inthanousay, PJ Inthanousay, and Jonny White, a group of friends from Arlington.

The list features 10 other North Texas barbecue restaurants, two of which claimed spots in the Top 10. Cattleack Barbeque in Farmers Branch was ranked at No. 6, and Panther City BBQ in Fort Worth was ranked No. 10.

Goldee's was mentioned in an NBC 5 story in February (see below) when The Dallas Morning News' Sarah Blaskovich said it was some of the best brisket she's had in a year or more.
