Our last stop on this year's C&C tour was Louie Mueller's in Taylor. It was tough to pass by Vencil's, but we did it anyways. We stopped about 11:15, just before the main lunch rush hit. There were about 20 people in line when we left.
I have to say I was pretty disappointed at Louie Mueller's. The brisket was very tough, chewy even, and had little flavor outside of the crispy peppery rind. No smoke flavor at all. The ribs were tender and had the same problem. Great crust, but no penetration of the meat. The jalepeno sausage was excellent with perfect texture, snap, and fine spicy flavor. If the line hadn't been so long I would have loaded up on some extra links to take home. Next year. The potato salad was nice and creamy, a solid 4 out of 5. The sauce was a bit vinegary for my taste. Scott swears the brisket was kick-ass last year so we'll just put this one down to the vagueries of BBQ and try again next year.
