    134 has a Texas BBQ tour you can follow found here.

    If you haven't had barbeque smoked with Oak you have to try it. I've been to Kreuz, Southside and Louie Mueller's on that list and I have to say Louie Mueller Barbeque has been burned into my soul as the place to go for brisket and beef ribs.

    Every little Texas town with a meat market, butcher, will usually have BBQ. They process wild game for hunters and smoke sausage as a byproduct of their work. The fun is discovering them as you travel across Texas.

    Thanks for this guys. For better or worse I am going to Dallas and will have a few days to kill. May be my only chance to get some real Texas BBQ. Chris, I got the app you mentioned above and I'm sure it will come in handy.

    We're headin home to Dallas next month for my Mom's 80th. We're planning to hit Austin and Lockhart on our way to San Antonio and back thru Lockhart to Austin again then back to 'bama. Really looking forward to the trip. Pecan Lodge, Smitty's, and Black's are on the go to list. May try to hit Franklin's and/or Stubb's.

    I spent most of my adult life in Kansas City. I'll take KC ribs and pork over any place in the country, but Texas brisket puts all others to shame. There's nothing like it. That salty crisp crust and moist interior makes my mouth water just thinking about it. I'm going to have to travel in Texas for most of the month of October...I'm lining up my customer calls to fit in amongst my barbecue stops.
