Cooper’s Bar-B-Que – Llano


Today, I am driving west, and I needed some food that would keep me fed for my trip.  I stopped in at Cooper’s in Llano, Texas.  From the pit, I selected the brisket and the turkey.  The trick here is that they don’t weigh your meat until you are at the inside line.  So they always over serve on the BBQ from the pit – no matter what you ask for.  That is why you see so much food at the table.  Needless to say, I didn’t need to eat for the rest of the day.




Black’s Barbecue Austin


I have been wanting to try this location of Black’s Barbecue for a long time.  It is located near the University of Texas campus on Guadalupe and 31st and 1/2 Street.  It is a small restaurant and today there was a smoker outside and a short line of people on the inside.  The brisket was perfect, just as you would expect from a Black’s site.  You line up, order your sides, have them slice and weigh your meat selections, pay for everything, get your drinks, then find a table inside or on the outside patio.  I highly recommend it if you find yourself in the area.
