OK, I realize this is the Cookshack forum and all that BUT..the wife had a 3 day conference in San Antonio last week and my mind instantly went to TX BBQ! We made a nice little vacation out of the trip and visited old friends in the Lone Star State.
Driving to San Antonio from Freeport along the Gulf coast I took a nice little side trip to Lockhart, TX and we had lunch at historic Black's on Main Street. I was in heaven, after asking for brisket, sausage (original recipe of course!)and the biggest darn beef rib I've ever seen, the guy carving the meat said "what, no chicken?"! So I had a thigh too..
If ya'll ever find yourself within a couple hours drive of Lockhart treat yourself and make the trip. If not Black's, try Kruetz Market or Smitty's. They're all good and you won't regret it.
