Sauce is typically considered unneeded but may be served on the side. Today, many barbecue restaurants open around 11:00am and serve until "they are out of meat", most barbecue establishments are closed on Sundays. At a typical Central Texas pit barbecue restaurant, the customer takes a tray cafeteria style and is served by a Pit Master who carves the meat by weight, side dishes and desserts are then picked up along the line with sliced white bread, pickles, sliced onion, and jalapeno. Barbecue meats are commonly sold by the pound. The emphasis of Texas pit barbecue is on the meat, if sauce is available, it is usually considered a side dip for wetting purposes. Texas pit barbecue do not concern the piquancy of the sauces, or on the common side dishes and desserts main consideration is of the quality of the cooking of the meats.
