Yup, take me back to Black's! Always my first stop when visiting Lockhart. There are plenty of Black's haters out there but I am not among them. Having sampled all 4 Lockhart joints numerous times on different occasions over several years (just look back in this blog), I have found they have the best consistency for quality smoked meats. On this trip the brisket was a 10 out of 10 and the ribs and jalapeno cheese sausage were right up there, too. My buddy Scott had me pick up about 6 pounds for him and he has some good eating coming after a short zap in the microwave.
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.
