    Texas BBQ

    My wife and just spent some time going through the Texas BBQ Belt including a trip to the "Mecca" of Lockhart (Black's, Smiity's, Kruez), and checking some less famous places in Austin. If y'all have not done this it is a must for any serious BBQr. The memory of the brisket I have will stick with me and I now know what I am striving for back home. Had the great opportunity to go to a newer place in Austin, la Barbecue, through a connection with my niece on a day they were closed but preparing for the following day. I really went to school and watched the trimming of a full packer brisket up close. Being able to ask questions and get feedback was much better than watching on a video. I was in BBQ heaven. Get out there folks. Airfare from anywhere in the country is not that much.

    jfarley I've been to those places, and I totally agree. If you are in Dallas you should go to the Pecan Lodge for the beef ribs.


      Love the Texas BBQ! I have not made the Pilgrimage to Lockhart yet, but it's on the list!

      jfarley you did a behind the scene's thing at la barbecue? tells us something you learned? I can't wait to eat there.


        La barbecue used to be a pitmaster for Franklin. He and his dad built a mack daddy offset with vertical chamber on the end.


          Been to Lockhart and many of the Austin spots many times. Excellent, excellent bbq!


            John Lewis of La Barbecue has opened a place in South Carolina as well...


            And you can get a custom pit built by his dad....
