    Newcomer from Austin


    I'm from Austin Texas and get to enjoy the best BBQ in the world here. I haven't been to Franklin's but have been just about everywhere else in Texas, save West Texas. I'm going to take a day off maybe next week to do a Franklin's eat, I'll post pictures.

    My top five BBQ joints are all in Central Texas except for one.

    1. Kreuz
    2. Freedman's
    3. Micklethwait
    4. Tie between Pecan Lodge (Dallas) and Stiles Switch (Austin)
    5. Bert's BBQ

    I currently own a Lynx 42", Texas Smokemaster offset withvertical chamber, Weber Kettle (precedeing three at the family farm. At home I run a Hasty Bake Legacy, Weber Genesis E-310, a small Bolivian made open air grill and soon to be owner of a Pitt's and Spitt's 18x30 Pellet Grill, I'm very pumped for this unit to arrive.

    I'm a former owner of a Grand Hall/Cafe gas smoker, a WSM 22".

                Hey Rancho Starvo....I feel kind of out of place welcoming you since I just joined yesterday but I am a fellow Austinite and felt it was the neighborly thing to do. I'll look for your smoke signals over the Austin skyline.


                  Welcome to the Pit...but the BEST BBQ on the planet is West of the Mississippi...because currently I AM west of the Mississippi...but THAT could change...lol


                    Welcome. I look forward to your contributions. Also, it's not grilling, but . . .

                    If you can sneak in some pictures of Threadgill's chicken fried steak now and then, at least one of us would be appreciative.
