Don't forget some time in Luling and some more to spend in Shiner at the brewery.

I tried to do the tour but was shut out of Smitty's since they closed at 6:00, so I can't comment on them except that they should stay open a little later if they want to serve dinner. Who closes at 6?

Part of my problem is that I was so pumped up that I felt a little disappointed outside of a couple things...

Blacks- Typical dive atmosphere, super friendly employees, food was just okay in my opinion. I wanted to get a sample of most items so I had sausage (original), brisket, and pork ribs. Sausage was pretty course and I'm more of a pork sausage eater so it didn't work well for me. Brisket (point) was cut with the grain so it was stringy and hard to chew, the pork ribs tasted very bitter as it was in the smoke far too long and very dry. My friend ordered the beef rib and about fell off his chair was so good. He still talks about that big fat beef rib and it did look good. If I go back I know that's the only thing I'm going to order.

Kreuz- I loved the big open warehouse with monster pits in the back. I really liked the experience of looking at the wood fire rolling next to me feeding a pit while I ordered. I ordered the beef shoulder and it was pretty good but nothing to die for.

Food quality was better for me at Kreuz but I made the mistake of not getting the beef rib at Black's. I don't know if I will go out of my way to make it back to any of these places as I prefer Salt Lick if I'm going to the Austin area. On a bigger scale my preference is more geared toward KC or Carolina BBQ so to me Texas BBQ is just okay and has it's place but not what I love to eat.
