    Texas > Austin: The Salt Lick (Driftwood Location)

    The best bbq I have ever had was when I visit my daughter's family in Austin. Have not been to the Driftwood, but will on my next visit. There are numerous great places in that area. We used an article in USA Today as a guide, but I have misplaced it....tom

    Hamburger Buns

    I make my own hamburger and hot dog buns. I use the King Arthur flour recipes and I bought the hamburger and hot dog pans. I always use the bread maker to prepare the dough. It is so easy. Put the ingredients in the bread maker and after an hour and forty minutes, the dough is mixed and has...

    Brisket - Low and slow vs High Heat method... low & slow wins?

    I've only done one HH brisket and it was great. I am not trying to save face by saying it was moist. Our guests also said it. I have done many LS briskets, but I am now a convert to HH cooking. I think you can foul up either cook, if you don't pay attention, but with HH it is quicker....tom

    High Temp Method for Brisket Flat

    Last Sat we did a brisket using the high temp method as described in the forum. It was great. It cooked faster than described and we were done in 4 hours. No problem. We put the foiled brisket in an ice chest and covered it with towels. After about 2 hours we sliced it. It was moist and...

    Heat control - high altitude any different? - and misc. comments

    We are at 5200 ft I agree with Kevin. I use a mixture of lump and briquettes. It is good to burn and you have less ash which on a long cook can be a bother. Jim Minion suggested this to me and I like it....tom

    Cherry Liqueur (the limoncello hooked me)

    Many moons ago we had a couple of cherry trees in our yard. We used to have cherry picking parties. One guest suggested that we make some cherry bounce. You take a mason jar and fill it two thirds with cherries and then fill the rest of it with cubed sugar. You then pour the cheapest booze...
