  1. When you get to City Market, please take some photos of the inside.....especially as you enter into the pit room. City Market was one of my favorites....I thought the sausage was unique . the photos of the pits are great....
  2. And TexNewMex, somewhere you said that the ribs at one of the places was "fall off the bone." You'll learn that in Texas, that's no compliment. All it means is that the ribs were overdone, and had been cooked to mush, which anybody can do. The ribs that you had during your trek undoubtedly did not, for the most part anyway, "fall off the bone." Rather, they had a good, meaty texture, offered a little resistance to the tooth, and had to be pulled from the bone. If you enter your ribs in a barbecue competition, and they "fall off the bone," they'll be disqualified. ← It was the Baby back
  3. I am close to doing the same thing.....I keep thinking about them and I would really like to taste them again...luckily I have a wedding reception to go to in Austin at the end of October....so there is sausage in my future.....I just hope I can wait it out. Check out Mueller's site.....Sausage..........go to photos and then to Process and there are some great photos of Bobby Mueller making sausage.
  4. No, I don’t think most do. I think that was all me.......I would really classify it as a Roadwich. I think the reason I said hoagie, was because that’s what my grandma called that type of bread.... oblong split top with sesame seeds......I had never really thought about what defines a hoagie. When we were visiting her house and happened to get hungry all of us kids would run into the sewing room and she would be in there doing some grandmaly type task .........she would of course act putout and busy and just say.... "why don’t you throw some ham on a hoagie roll" That was the only bread in t
  5. I am not sure.....it has something to do with germans and immigrants, I wish I knew the whole story, but I know someone who could probably tell you...... Jaymes is the one with the BBQ history knowledge.
  6. To make it easier when you get here..........You can have this.
  7. 1. Brisket Kruez was good, City Market very good as well I liked the smoke flavor, the crust and the clear meat Pure Flavor. 2.Ribs Smitty's and Saltlick were Great! The Ribs were tender nice pink color...flavor, flavor, flavor Cooked on sauce was the ringer here.... 3.Sausage City Market..... I loved the hand made sausage rings...like I eluded to earlier....I had never tasted anything like it....awesome! Also, I can't be held responsible for saying one is my favorite and down the road something else is my favorite.....at some point it starts to run together...next year I am taking a mini
  8. You know what?.....It really is Great!.......Honestly, I had my doubts....I use to ask myself what the hubbub was all about and now that I have seen it, smelled it, tasted it and experienced the smoke the heat and met the people who create it.......I can say that they make something very special down there.....it may sound cheesy, but its true. I think its like that all over the US........I bet on the coast in Maine it’s the same with, maybe......... Lobster Rolls .......I bet there are tons of places to have one and each place is unique in its own way, the cuisine is probably steeped in as mu
  9. any final thoughts? Actually the trip was an eye opener for the most part, I guess I have always taken BBQ for granted.....I thought the local chains were good enough for the occasional dinner, but now...maybe in a pinch..... when I am in search of bbq and they don't have a pit....not worth the time! I am a little bias now. I think I am going to visit a couple of chains, just see what I use to eat. Do you crave cue at all even? As much as I want to say no.....I can't lie....during the third post the photos were making me hungry, so I took some of the beef I had chopped up out of the freezer,
  10. I really appreciate the nice comments, thank you. I do have a couple of ideas for future trips…..I would like to tour the hundreds of Taquerias in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex…..I did a quick search and it looks like there are about 250 + out there so I have a long road ahead of me. I think Taquerias are a treasure trove of food culture…so many different regions of Mexico are represented here in DFW. I am in negotiations with my manager (wife) to see if it will be possible. I also have a project idea of epic proportions, something that has not been done, as far as I can see, that will test
  11. Day 2 Continued….7/28/06 Homemade Pies! Leaving Burnet we head south on highway 281 back towards Austin. We have another unscheduled stop to make…..our hosts at the Boren Manor suggested we stop in Marble Falls and visit the..... Blue Bonnet Café…… I believe this place is around 70 years old and serves home style type food, but they are known for their pies….and they make several different kinds…..the meringues on the pies are as tall as building……there amazing….I wanted to buy a couple of pies for the party on Sunday, but I didn’t know if they would make the trip……I spoke with one o
  12. Day 2 continued 7/28/06 ………It’s a beautiful day in Texas…..except for the heat. Elgin to Taylor We are now headed to another place I have really been looking forward to. Louie Mueller’s in Taylor. The drive was relaxing…..only about 25 minutes. The little town of Taylor is like many small towns in Texas…..a historic downtown with wonderful old buildings and architecture. Newer construction usually finds its way to the north of towns on the main road or highway this is where the chains take their hold. Driving through some of the old downtown streets can be sad…….the buildings that make up t
  13. Day 2……7/28/06 It’s officially day #2 8:30 AM……As I suspected it was not a dream and I still have 2 days left……..Can’t wait….no regrets yet….. Our gracious host have raved about a little place near downtown Austin that serves a good migas dish……It seems to be the perfect start……We arrive at Cisco’s at about 9:00 AM. Its located in an unassuming…little building on the corner of 5th and something…..from the outside I can tell I am going to enjoy what ever it is they serve me …..you know how you just get that feeling sometimes…well I had it. We entered in through the front door and I immediatel
  14. You already had seen the "halls of greatness." Kreuz got its start over in the Smitty's building. There was a family feud a couple of years back. The sister is in the old building, running Smitty's. The brother is in the new building running Kreuz.Haven't you heard the story? Maybe Hall of greatness was bit much.......I have read the story.....I was just impressed with the size and thats the one place everyone said to go.......maybe i will have t do another fact finding misson to Smitty's.I don't think "halls of greatness" was too much. In fact, I think it's perfect. I just think you use
