Behold, the Texas Monthly BBQ app, which finds barbecue based on your location anywhere in the world. That's right: this isn't just about brisket any more. The free app also features reviews (just of the Texas locations), message boards, and a check-in feature that posts to a leaderboard on the magazine's brand new barbecue website.
You can rise in the barbecue ranks as you check in to more and more places, with titles that range from "casual enthusiast" to "pit pundit" to "BBQ junkie." As one user notes, "The new @TexasMonthly BBQ leaderboard is basically Foursquare for heart disease." Doctor of BBQ Gabriel_P is currently in the lead with 60 points, so get on it.
