On our way back from the Houston BBQ Fest we routed through Lockhart so I could refill my freezer with Kreuz jalapeno cheese sausage. We met my buddy Dave at Black's on Monday morning and had an excellent meal. While standing in line, Dave mentioned that Black's now only does pork chops on the weekends. The guy at the slicing block heard him and said they had put on a rack of chops that morning by mistake and actually had some available. Dave got the end chop off the rack and was a very happy man. I got a sample and it was very good. My order was the usual half pound of moist brisket, 2 spare ribs and a jalapeno sausage ring. Everything was excellent and we all agreed Blacks was at the top of their game that day. The brisket was tender and moist with smoke flavor for days.
Afterwards we wandered down to Kreuz Market for some of their excellent sausage. Once that was packed in the cooler we were off to the Pickle Parkway and home.
