Adventures in Texas barbecue. Want to stop the swine flu? Barbecue a pig! And remember, lettuce or spinach can kill you.

City Market, Luling Texas, 8/21/13
sampled about 5 pm
Another of our standard stops Southeast of Austin though I have to say they seem to have slipped a bit in recent samples. The ribs and sausage are still great, but the brisket does not seem to have the deep smoke flavor it used to have. On this trip the brisket was a bit under cooked and took a little tug to pull apart. Once again, many reviews and photos from this place earlier in this blog.
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.
