With stupidity, old age and a bbq fanatic where would you start? I never have been to the Golden Triangle of BBQ, Lockhart, Texas. That would be an entire weekend and I will get it done.

If you could make a few road trips for BBQ...................where would they be? I'm interested food

Salt Lick in Driftwood was very good,in my opinion. Stopped in at Cooper's in Llano a few days ago. Was very disappointed after hearing how good it was. Brisket was much too salty for me, and I love salt. Nothing there impressed me.

While on Lockhart trip, head down the road a little ways to Luling City Market. You won’t be disappointed.

Head to Stanley’s in Tyler and hit Mike Anderson’s on the way through Dallas. Stanley’s brisket is top notch, I get extra bark; their sandwiches are good as well, the motherclucker Cadillac style, in particular. Mike Anderson’s jalapeño cheese sausage is the best I’ve had.

You can’t have a BBQ road trip without going to Muellers in Taylor, Texas. Muellers is one of the best in Texas. Splurge and get the beef rib.

Stanley's has the best ribs I've had in Texas. Mueller's in Taylor is my favorite bbq place. Franklin's in Austin was a great experience (even having to wait in line) and GREAT bbq. Bodacious in Longview (the one on Mobberly) is a great destination bbq place. The Pecan Lodge in Dallas is really good (great sausage). I want to try 407, Snow's, Cattleack, Killen's, Micklethwait and La Bbq.

Don't believe all the hype about Truths Bbq in Brenham just drive on by Texas Monthly made their BS
reviews because of big money backers

Truths owner Botellos partners are restaurateur Johnny Carrabba (Carrabba's, Mia's Table, Grace's, Common Bond Bakery) and private wealth manager Jason Fertitta.

Ate at Kreuz in Lockhart really disappointed, next time I will try Blacks. I really enjoyed Coopers in Llano that was 15 + years ago ate at Saltlick about 20 years ago it was good then.

You don’t see it as much these days but twenty years ago I would advise you to take back roads and stop at every roadside pit you see. There were some good cooks on the side of the road back then.

That's how I felt about the Salt Lick, the only good thing there is BYOB and their Lauren's sauce.

Texas Monthly still has prizes to give away for completing all Top 50 places, so get you a BBQ Passport and eat all top 50. Then after that you will be a BBQ connoisseur.

If making it to Tyler then need to stop at Country Tavern in Kilgore since it is only 20 min away.

What nobody said Dickies? Does the jockey ride it in before they slaughter at those places?

Make sure you go by the Shed Market in Abilene! It is relatively new but sales out of BBQ everyday. They only use USDA Prime brisket. The operator grew up in an old TX classic called The Shed in Wingate. It is phenomenal!!!

I stopped in at The Shed today at 5 hoping there was some brisket left still. I wasn’t disappointed! Got a 1 meat plate with moist brisket to go. Potato salad was fair, cole slaw was spicy with minced jalapeño. The brisket was excellent. Thin bark with lots of seasoning. Folded some meat in a slice of bread, no extra seasoning or sauce needed. I’ll be making a return trip.
They’re located on Buffalo Gap Rd on the right, just past fm 707 headed toward B Gap.
