Black's - Another Lockhart BBQ. Damn. In Lockhart, BBQ joints are like Starbucks in NYC - there's one on every corner.

Those pix remind me of about ten little Texas towns.
Looks like you had a great time, Brooklyn!

Close by in Texas terms :D 90 minutes if they get lucky with traffic?

Didn't know Smitty's went with Mesquite. Most folks around Lockhart burn Oak.

You sure you aren't thinking about Cooper's in Llano? Kreuz didn't move to their new building until '99, and that's when Smitty's opened up in the same building. I know Cooper's burns their mesquite and cooks over the coals and that's a lot closer to Kingsland.

How did you like the sauce at Kreuz's?

Saw a special on Smittys/Kreuz last year. Kreuz was where Smitty's is now and there was some family problems. If I remember right, one part of the family actually had the rights to the restaurant and the other owned the building. Anyway, the guys running the restaurant left, built a new building and the building owners went into the bbq business.

Honestly, I don't remember the sauce, so I guess it was nothing special. If you want more to read more on Lockhart, here's a link to my blog where I get into more detail.

Go in and ask for sauce It's bad enough that they sell beans now!

The boys, Rick and Don (IIRC) had the business, their sister had the building. they couldn't come to terms so the brothers took the business down the road. It lost a little something; mostly in consistency and the feel of the old building. When they moved, one bucket of coals from the old pits were carried down HWY 183 with police escort to the new pit.
