2011 Calories and Cholesterol Tour!

We had an abbreviated tour this year, 3 1/2 days, with 8 BBQ stops.  5 stops we had eaten at before 3 were new joints for us.  Scott got his first taste of Franklin in Austin and I got my second.    We also came home with lots of goodies for future consumption.  I scored 2 pounds of fatty brisket to go at Franklin BBQ in Austin, plus a box of 25 links of jalapeno cheese sausage from Kreuz in Lockhart.  Black's in Lockhart was having a sale on frozen fatty brisket at the bargain basement price of just $6 a pound, so I had to grab a couple of pounds of that as well.  So this week's good eatin' will continue for another week or so, at least.  Woo hoo!

As usual, the festivities began as we turned south on the fabled Pickle Parkway, or as I like to call it, the BBQ parkway to Lockhart.  They have not quite completed the last few miles to Lockhart, but based on the bridges and flyovers that seem to be completed, it will not be long now.  Read on for more details and don't forget you can click on the pictures for larger, mouth watering versions!
