More stops on the way back from Houston 4/27/15
On the way back to DFW we stopped by Kreuz Market in Lockhart plus the Taylor Cafe and Louie Mueller's in Taylor. I came away with 25 jalapeno cheese links from Kreuz, 2 pounds of brisket from Vencil Mares' place, and a "Texas Dozen" of jalapeno sausage from Louie's. We also made a short stop at Slovecek's in West where Scott grabbed me one jalapeno cheese link to try out later. I have a very happy freezer and I believe I may remove the welcome mat from the front door until it is empty again. Can you blame me?
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.
