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.




Stiles Switch BBQ


Tonight’s dinner was consumed at the award winning Stiles Switch BBQ.  Nothin’ fancy, just some great Texas BBQ.  I enjoyed the moist brisket, turkey breast, mac n cheese, corn casserole, and iced tea.  This is a nice casual place on Lamar Blvd. in North Austin, so come and check it out.





Terry Black’s Barbecue


Welcome to Austin! We need another BBQ Joint. 🙂

The good news is that this version of Black’s Barbecue is very similar to the one in Lockhart. I walked in the door and picked my sides – beans and creamed corn. I then turned the corner and watched as my meats were cut and weighed – moist brisket, turkey breast, and a small jalapeño and cheese sausage. Then pay, grab your drink, and enjoy. You can choose to sit inside or on the patio outside, where I am composing this post at the moment. What a beautiful day in Austin it is.
