the best bbq

people are always asking me
are you on a special diet to slow down your disease
the recommended diet is the
mind diet

i say usually
i am a 90% vegetarian
we dont eat meat that often
sometimes you just want a good hamburger
if we are in texas
some good bbq

so if im going to eat meat i want the good stuff

now i havent eaten at all the bbq places around austin tx
but i have eaten at most of them over the years

the number one numbero uno is
who else but
franklin bbq

granted you have to wait in line a long while to get it
when you make it to the front of the line a few hours later
its all worth it
oh my
my mouth is watering like crazy right now

the second best bbq place that ive eaten at
well it closed down
it was in the small community north of austin
called bertram
it was only open a few years until it closed
we ate there frequently since we lived close by
they were once rated the #3 best bbq in texas the
first year they were opened

those ribs were so good
the juicy meat just fell off the bone
all the sides were good like at franklin bbq

the previous owner still has the rights to the secret
not sure if he plans to ever use it again
at a cookout at his house

another one of the best bbq places in the austin area
is a short drive east of town
to the mueller bbq in an old building downtown
even the screen door as you go in has a big ole rip in it
when you walk in you can smell that good bbq smell
it seems to be reaking out of the wood
when we went i told my wife she
i think i could just lick the walls and taste the bbq
when we left that day i felt like a full tick on an ole hounddog
it wouldnt take much to make me pop open

so if i was going to get good bbq it would be franklin
or if i couldnt get in
i would make that drive over to muellers
no no kin to the prosecutor guy

then there is another one
i hear that its to die for bbq
if you can get it
its further east of austin
in a small 3a town of lexington
there is this little ole lady aged 83
named tootsie
that starts cooking her bbq at 200am on saturday
she only cooks so much
somewhere between 1000-2000 lbs of it
when its gone its gone
she opens up snows bbq at 800am on saturday morning
they are open until its gone
i heard dont go there for lunch
there may not be any left

there is a long line out the door
rain or shine
if you have been to franklin bbq you know what
thats like

she works 30 hours a week at the local school district
the bbq is her weekend job

she is up as a finalist for the prestigious best bbq in the southwest
never heard of it she said but shes happy shes nominated

that puts her bbq up there with the  best of the best

her bbq is always up there with franklin bbq in the
texas monthly best bbq awards

here is a nice article on her and her bbq

its a feel good article
when you read it you will
feel good
want some of her bbq
