      1. The side trip to Lockhart, TX is worth it - especially for the smoked prime rib at Smitty's.

            I've also got a very fond spot in my heart at Kreuz (and Salt Lick too for that matter - yeah, I know. Old timers say it's not like it used to be.). Can't go wrong with the barbecue at either place. That said, I'd give my right arm for Smitty's prime rib - then again, I'm a ribeye steak guy and combine that with their smoker and I'm in heaven.

            1. re: mahalan

              I would not be surprised if these replies get pulled since they're OT b/c we're now talking TX food on the South board, but I think Salt Lick is fine and their brisket, even if not what it used to be, is world's better than Alabama brisket.

          2. re: mahalan

            My own experience is that Kreuz is much better than Smitty's - especially the sausage. That said, I would stop at the City market in Luling in preference to either.

              . Folks, we have asked chowmarty to post a separate query on the Texas board for that portion of his road trip that will be in Texas. Please hold of on any further Texas recommendations until Marty posts a query on the Texas board.
