Meyers Elgin Smokehouse in Elgin, Texas
Another top rated joint according to several folks but we must have been there on a bad day. The garlic pork sausage was the only thing that rated an "attaboy" on this trip. First time in a long time I have had a rib that I couldn't even finish because it was so bad. Tater salad was the best of the trip, though.
I love barbecue. I always wanted to spend some vacation time sampling the best BBQ joints in Texas. A few years ago, my friend Scott and I started doing just that and we've been doing it every year since. We call it the "Calories and Cholesterol Tour". Since so many people were asking me about our experiences, I started writing them up. We are not expert eaters or writers. We just do this for fun and because we LOVE Texas BBQ.
A note about our reviews. We tend to be "stealth" reviewers. We don't ask for pit tours or cooking techniques and we try to be discrete about taking photos til after we are done. We want to experience each meal as an average customer.

I also have a separate bass fishing blog.
