Bham - Brisket
Man that post about I-10 where Mahalan mentioned Smitty's reminded me of my Lockhart trip to to Kreuz. I went to their online menu and believe I actually salivated on my keyboard. Does anyone here do fatty brisket anything like the briskey (or prime rib) found at any of Lockhart holy trinity places? I'm probably asking too much ...
Saw's has done it once before, but I think he threw away the fatty end - it was all lean. I gave my dad two briskets from Black's BBQ this Xmas and they were just as good at home as they are in Lockhart.
I live in Houston currently and i'm moving to Bham. I love brisket and also love smoking it myself. I've been to all the heavy hitter: Luling City, Smitty's, Black's, Kreuz, Franklin's and Snow's .
For brisket alone, Franklin's and Smitty's stand above the rest. Truly life altering stuff. I'm going to miss them greatly.
Welcome to the 'ham!
While we've got some great dining options, the barbecue scene isn't really up to what you're used to. That said, if you're open to something a bit different the white sauce they put on barbecue here really isn't bad (actually, it can be very good). I'd also recommend hitting up Moe's in Lakewood and trying their wings (yes, they cost almost as much as their ribs but the wings are more than worth it while the ribs aren't even worth half the cost.)
Think you'll love the transition.
