Default My pit is ready!

Just got an email from Amber at Lonestargrillz and my vertical insulated cooker is ready! Im really excited about the new cooker. Im headed to Texas Thursday with my teenage son on a road trip to pick it up. Give me some good places to try Teaxas style BBQ. I'll be going from Texarkana to Conroe probably on hwy 59. Any good joints along the way?

I'm not familiar with those areas, but congrats on the new rig! LSGs makes some nice stuff! Post pics of the rig and reviews of the food joints you try...

IH-45 exit 164 at Centerville. Woodys Smoke house. Best jerky selection, pickles, mini pies and a gas station. Turkey jerky is out of this world. They have a cool website for mail order

Congrats on new pit

Louie Mueller's is in Taylor, not Lufkin.

If you want to eat at the best places, then you are going to need to detour through the Austin area. Otherwise just look at the Texas Monthly top 50 list and stop where you can.

Woody's has some great jerky, and fantastic German Sausage, but it is quite a bit out of his travel path.

From Hwy 59, you could hop over to Huntsville and try...

New Zion Missionary Baptist Church Barbecue
2601 Montgomery Rd
Huntsville, TX 77340
936-294-0884
Open Thur-Sat 11-7

I've read good and bad reviews of the cue, but the atmosphere is supposed to be exceptional. I think Gore may have been there, maybe he has an opinion.

From Huntsville, you are a half-hour drive to Conroe.

The legendary Texas BBQ joints are over near Austin, which is way off your path.

Stop at a Buc-ee's! They are best gas stations in the world. They have everything and more. Fudge to yeti coolers. I recommend a hippo breakfast taco with spicy green sauce or a BLT for lunch. They have Q, but I have never it. It looks good, they have their own station in the store. Also off of 105 in Conroe, they have the best catfish around at Vernon's. If you get to town early, drive down to Houston, there a few good places. Pappas BBQ, Goode Company, Rudy's, and one of my favs Demeris BBQ. Enjoy your trip!
