    Texas > Austin: The Salt Lick (Driftwood Location)

    First time I ever heard of the place was in the original "Road Food" guide from the '70s! Went there and met the original owner a nd his wife who was from Hawaii(i think). It was REALLY out in the country and hard to find in 1979 believe me.

    Weber Gourmet Grilling System

    Thanks for the feedback,Allan. I agree that the wok is on the small side. I never saw one of the old Weber woks. My daughter lives in Houston,Tx. and couldn't find one there! Don't know if they still make them or not. Considering the short cooking time for stir-fry is it worth the time to get...

    Do you serve brisket with sauce?

    Bill S., "Cheat" and use Stubb's if you can get it. Perfect for brisket. My bro-in-law does good brisket but is partial to Kraft Honey Mesquite and KC Masterpeice sauce. Ice cream topping if you ask me!LOL
