Tejas Chocolate Craftory Serves Sweet & Savory with Barbecue Offering

By  | 

Originally starting out as a chocolate company, the Tejas Chocolate Craftory in Tomball, Texas, has since become an amalgamation of a hot Texas barbecue destination mixed with a sweet and savory chocolate fan’s delight. Owner, Scott Moore, told the Huffington Post in a recent interview that he wanted to jump into the Lone Star State food game as well while he was waiting for his chocolate to process, and thus began the process of the Craftory selling 14-hour smoked brisket.

Moore hired his brother and the pair purchased a smoker. Using a basic recipe that churns out true Texas-smoked goodness, the Craftory ranked #6 in Texas Monthly’s Best Barbecue feature. Selling creative sandwich compilations, Tejas Chocolate Craftory steadily impresses visitors with food finesse, including such selections as the Bird & Bacon and Brisket & Blues (a brioche bun topped with brisket, bleu cheese, red onions, and butter…mmm.)

Overwhelmed (and humbled they say) from their rating in Texas Monthly, the brothers manage their chocolate sales in onsite orders only rather than the online ordering link, and have purchased a large cooker to enable them to sell more of what Texans love—great barbecue!

In the meantime, the Craftory continues to make high-quality chocolate through the slow-roasting of cacao beans in a hand-made brick oven, after which they are stone ground until smooth and aged for a number of weeks ensuring the chocolate’s complexity and smooth silkiness. As you can tell, these gentlemen are all about time and talent making top-notch Texas nosh.
