We went to Black's Bar B Que in Lockhart twice because the brisket was insanely good. I seriously have never had better. We went to Smitty's once, and their brisket was good... but not as good as Black's. However, Smitty's is known for their sausage which was insanely good in its own right! The photos above are from Smitty's. You walk into their smokehouse and order right from a counter in front of where they smoke the meat. It was amazing to see, hear, and smell the process and then taste the yummy results.
If you go to the Austin area, you've got to go to Lockhart and try them for yourselves! Amazing!
