Barbecuing, like painting, usually entails the use of a brush, a master's touch, and the building anticipation to eat your finished product. Enjoy the Picassos of the pit with this Groupon.

Daddy Rex's Twisted BBQ
Back in the day, Daddy Rex's Twisted BBQ specialized solely in house-made sauces, which the company sold at festivals and expos throughout Texas. But that wasn't enough for the barbecue-loving team—soon they were smoking meats with pecan wood and serving rib-sticking cuisine from an 18-foot mobile kitchen known as the Taco Wagon. For a year-plus the Taco Wagon visited festivals all over Texas. But even then, they were hungry for more, so in November 2012 they decided to park permanently inside the historic interurban train depot in Anna, Texas, just north of McKinney.
That's where you'll find the Daddy Rex crew today, serving up tender portions of pulled pork, brisket, and chicken, along with three flavors of sausage, and a wealth of sides like fried okra and roasted corn. And because the team loves to put its own twist on traditional southern cooking, the menu also includes unique bites like a fried tortilla pizza topped with brisket and shredded cheese or smoked jalapeno bites, which are stuffed with cream cheese and sausage, wrapped in bacon, and sprinkled with brown sugar. Daddy Rex also caters to parties as small as 15 and as large as 1,500.
