Texas BBQ

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

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.
