Default Trip to Austin And The TX Fall BBQ Bash-Take A Q Tour With Me (Massive Amount Of Pics)

Finally took some time off to myself from my crazy schedule and the main reason for the trip was the TX Fall bbq Bash. Had a hell of a time and snapped along as I went.



Frognot met me down in Austin on Thursday and we hit up Valentina's Tex-Mex BBQ on Thursday





Now, here you can get Tex-Mex or Traditional BBQ. Since we were doing Franklin's the next day we decided to try Tex-Mex



Everything is smoked with mesquite as opposed to post oak which is more customary to Central TX



Homemade tortillas, brisket and pulled pork carnitas tacos, queso, beans and bbq corn



The pulled pork carnitas tacos. MAN I HAVE TO SAY THE TORTILLAS ARE THE BEST I'VE HAD. Out of this world good tacos



Chopped brisket tacos were farkin' outstandingly good also. Queso and bbq corn was excellent as well. Only thing I didn't care for were the charro beans. Bland for me.



So then it started to pour. The weather was in the 80's literally a couple hours ago. Charles said "Welcome to Texas"



Thunderstorm which continued pretty much until early Friday morning



So we decided to get indoors and went to Craft Pride in DT Austin for some craft brews and live music



Next morning we rose early for Franklin's The temps were in the low to mid 40's but we were troopers. Apparently not just us This was a couple hours in line.





Yea buddy!



You can get in about 8:30am for beer, gear and restrooms





It turns out we were also at the soft opening of the coffee trailer. No need to bring your own coffee or coffee drink anymore.



I also heard through the grapevine that a breakfast taco truck is in works



Finally they let the line in





My dude has some serious knife skill and an awesome guy at that







Chopped brisket sammies if anyone wants







Guess who got some burnt ends



1/2 lb lean, 1/2 lb moist, two bones of spares, burnt ends (AGAIN) 1/4lb turkey, Hatch sausage, TX toast and tater salad





Some of the best ribs I've tasted. That black pepper just shines



Brisket OUT OF THIS WORLD GOOD! Wow!!!!! No hype ladies and gentleman. This stuff is the real deal. Stays together perfect but pulls apart with no effort.

The turkey?? Oh my. I never thought I'd enjoy turkey this much. I can honestly say the best turkey breast I've ever had. Super moist to beging with and drenched in butter with the heavy note from the black pepper. Farkin' amazing!! HOMERUN!!



About summed it up I think



Then we hit the smoker area





Just beautiful! These is how the magic happens.



Hell of a time at Franklins and by night we hit this place. From what I got a convenience store initially but now craft beer, beer and wine, Indian food, live band and in Austin.







The tikka masala was very, very good especially chased down with craft beer

Next day was Bash day Got lost for a quick minute but it was nice cruising through the back roads



More like it





Great time at the bash eating and meeting people. Check out the dedicated thread with plenty more pics. https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/s...d.php?t=275773









On Sunday Andy (LYU370), his brother Bubba from AR and I hit Black's in Lockhart. Luckily we made it there on the 8th day of the week.





This was my plate. I think Andy and I agreed that we weren't really impressed and at best the food was meh. Brisket was on the dry side (even the point), sausage (the original) crumbly I couldn't finish and sides left much to be desired. Tater salad and green beans were edible.



Welp, since we couldn't really do more bbq we hit San Antonio!











Toured Alamo







Hit River Walk next









Some TX sized "Rita's on the River"



May not look it but these things were 32oz's each



Then stopped at this station for Bubba. He loves locomotives I found out.









I told them to take me West



They told me to move along!

So we drove back to Austin



Then of course next day I had to fill up at Buc-ee's









You can find anything here from smokers, to bbq to snack even pellet grills







At this point I think I'm going to cut off the pics. Too dang many as it is but as you know everything in TX is big including pic threads. Thanks for looking!!!

Thanks Suds! Def worth it. I couldn't make it to Truth or Miklethwait's because both were closed Monday. Heard about Miklethwaits there but Truth was on my list. Not enough time but there is always next time.

North Texas Spring Bash would be a good time to do that trip. Smitty could be your tour guide. We talked about this Saturday. [emoji848]
