As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, I was excited about the prospect of Lockhart Smokehouse booking a local blues artist I enjoy and I was looking forward to heading over to give their Q another try. Several other bloggers have been saying they've upped their game so it was definitely time for another go.
The Mrs rode along this time and we arrived around the 7:30 pm start time for the music and headed for the counter to order. The nice lady told me they were out of brisket but still had shoulder, ribs, and rings which was more than I had hoped for at this late hour. We got a half pound of clod, a couple of ribs, and a Kreuz jalapeno cheese ring and they were kind enough to throw in some extra burnt ends and two extra ribs. Alright, a nice start! Then things started getting weird. My wife asks if I would like a fork. As I turned to explain to her about "No Forks, No Sauce, No Kidding!" I see that she is holding two plastic forks. Humna humna humna... Then the nice lady at the counter explains that the forks are a special fundraiser and are available for a $1 donation to the Kessler School fund. Well, ok, we'll take one for wifey, but I like my fingers greasey, thank you very much! I wonder how much they could raise with sauce and plates?
So I'm a bit confused by Lockhart Smokehouse. No forks, except when there are, Live music on Friday and Saturday nights, except when there isn't. As we headed out down Davis we passed by Luckie's Smokehouse. They had a two piece band out on the patio and the joint was packed. Hmmmm.
