Texas BBQ

Recommended Posts

 
it's never failed me but I don't go as often as some of y'all 

I wish that was the case for me. The lat 3 times were not up to par and one of those down right awful.

So I’m off this week and want to hit up a non-Austin BBQ place with my old man. The tl;dr version is that he has stage 4 prostate cancer and I don’t know how much longer I’ll have with him. I thought it would make for a fun day to road trip to a great BBQ spot for lunch.

I moved out of Texas in 2016 and only recently moved back, so I am not as in tune with the current state of BBQ spots outside of Austin. The options I have considered are Black’s, Cooper’s, and Luling City Market, but that’s all based on my BBQ knowledge before leaving for a minute.

So, my question to all of you is simple. Where would you recommend we go that is 3 hours or less from Austin?

Black's in Lockhart is still very good.  Well, it was before the pandemic, I haven't been since.

Truth in Brenham is also a great option, if the weather is nice.  

We were in Brenham yesterday for a soccer game.  Arrived at Truth at 11:50 to a 30 minute line.  One pound each of brisket, sausage, and pork ribs; half-pound turkey; mac & cheese; corn pudding (more like dressing); collard greens; and large slice of Italian cream cake.  Everything was great.

Brett’s Backyard in Rockdale has great bbq, lots of aggyism though. Be sure and check his days/hours, seems like it’s Thursday-Sunday.

Sorry to hear about your dad.

Corrected the location.

Brett's Backyard does have good barbecue.  It's located in Rockdale on Cameron Avenue, though.

2M, Truth or Louis Mueller would be good choices. I know 2M and Truth (in Houston at least, not sure about Brenham) are only doing to-go orders. Might want to see what LM is doing these days. I'm sure you could find somewhere decent to eat bbq outside in Brenham. Close to 2M not as much. 

Don't do City Market. I went recently and it was really bad.

Truth in Brenham has outside seating on picnic tables - some in the shade, some not.

Truth in Houston has opened for dine in (probably a month ago).

I just realized that it was last Monday that I drove by thinking it was to go only but they were actually closed (like they are every Monday).

I think Truth in Brenham is only open on the weekend.  If you are going during the week, I'd pick Louis Mueller - if you go to LM, don't pass up the beef rib.

Louie Mueller might be a good choice for the atmosphere. The entire room is a smoke filled shrine that drips old school BBQ

I'm eating low carbs, so my wife picked the sides.  I ate the collard greens - which were pretty good.

Went out to Dozier's in Fulshear last week and saw ChampKind.  Very good brisket and pork ribs; restaurant was busy and Champ seems to be doing well.

Louie Mueller won’t be 9000 degrees this time of year.

They have AC in the addition now.

Hurtado has some nice bacon burnt ends and beef ribs but everything else sucks. Sides are way too spicy and the potato salad made me want to vomit. They definitely have potential but jesus christ cut the cayenne back just a little bit.

Had Burns Original BBQ for the first time yesterday...likely won’t have it again. Brisket was tough and flavorless, homemade link and pork ribs average, boudin underwhelming... I loved watching the Bourdain visit to the place but it won’t be part of my H-Town bbq rotation.

I felt the same way. Just further solidified my preference for central Texas bbq over all others. East Texas style bbq rarely moves the needle for me.

Was the potato salad inedible?

I could only stomach a few bites. Instead of potatoes with some mayo it was mayo with some potatoes.

Real Deal Holyfield from last weekend. Biggest slice of brisket I've ever had on one of them. Valentina's is our regular Saturday morning breakfast spot whenever we visit our daughter in Kyle.

He should open a place where he just yells at people in line about how he's a better pitmaster than his dad and then sell them warmed over Dickey's.

I know 2 couples that are about to be taken.
