Black's BBQ, Lockhart, Texas 4/27/15
Take me back to Black's. While we had fun at the Houston BBQ fest, this was the real deal and this meal alone made the entire trip worthwhile. Every bite of this was excellent with deep smoke flavor in the brisket. I was tasting smoke flavor for hours afterwards. Click and enlarge that photo at your own peril. The fat just melted away when chewed. I also grabbed 2 pounds of frozen brisket and a giant beef rib to go. Something to look forward to, later.
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. If you know a great Texas BBQ joint we need to try, e-mail me at donotemp AT gmail DOT com. CLICK ON THE PHOTOS FOR A LARGER VIEW! I also have a separate bass fishing blog.
