      I always wanted to go to Coopers but if President Johnson used them for their white house gatherings then they are worth it. Salt Lick I have always enjoyed.

      I haven't ordered from County Line, and Cooper's is one of my favorites, but...

      When I was out of range of Texas Style BBQ, My girlfriend got the Salt Lick shipped to me for my birthday. I got a full brisket ( with all the fat on it) , a full rack of ribs, and 2 pounds of sausage. When it comes in the mail, it is still cold and has to be reheated to 160 or 170 degrees. It can also be frozen to save for later. They throw in a bottle of sauce too. I had Salt Lick BBQ for weeks, and all I had to supply was the bread, crackers, pickles, and onions. It was great. I think it only cost about 100 bucks, shipping included. Salt Lick's shipping service comes highly recommended by Salt of the Earth,

          Absolutely-positively Coopers. I did it once for everyone for Christmas, now they won't let me do anything else...guess that makes gift giving easy

            After visiting the restaurant a couple of summers ago and meeting the proprietor and touring the smokers in back, my dad ordered a brisket shipped from Rudy's (not the chain Ruby's) to highlight a dinner party in St. Louis. He reported that it worked out great.

              did you mean Ruby's (not the chain Rudy's)? ruby's is the bbq joint on guadalupe and 29th or 30th, i forget.

              From my experience, don't prder from
              Clark's Outpost. Awful. I resolved to
              never again order Texas beef
              brisket. Hope you're more successful.
