I took a buddy and his dad to lunch for some Lockhart BBQ sometime last fall. Two things out of the ordinary; one, we went to Black's instead of Kreutz's or Smitty's, and two, I took a camera and snapped a couple of pics. Photographing what I am about to eat is not something I ordinarily do. Anyway, here are the snaps:
Please note (and forgive) the heresy that is Black's: a) dorky looking "wild west" decoration out front attracts annoying motorcycles, b)plastic and styrafoam (ugh), and c) most egregious, side dishes (although potato salad, beans, pickles and peppers are the most acceptable of side dishes.) Blacks has shit that should be at your grandma's dinner table but not in a barbecue joint such as peach cobbler and maybe even fried okra! A lot of folks like Blacks, and the meat is pretty damn tasty. Please note: the sleeve of crackers is muy correct.
I have some friends coming from out of state to Austin for the first time next week. We're going to do the "BBQ tour" and maybe I'll take my camera. I'm working on the list of places to visit but I don't know how much they're up for. Not sure how much of this I can take, been a long time since I did the "twice in one day 'cause Lockhart and Luling are in the same direction" nonsense.
