This right here. And if people are afraid to go in it, all the better - more for me!

City Market is awesome - though I haven't made it to Snow's in Lexington in time to get any.

We actually stopped at Blacks on the way back from judging the Memphis in May BBQ Competition last year....was CRAVING BEEF!!! (Memphis in may is PORK only except for the wildcard division, which can get CRAZY!!!!!!!!!)

Black's is in Lockhart (and it's the best in the town since the family feud over Kreuz's ruined it). But it doesn't hold a candle to City Market in Luling.

The best I have had was at home, but I love BBQ down around Carolina over to TN to central Florida. Lots of good BBQ out there, so not one.

I actually preferred The BBQ Shop (on Madison), A&R (downtown location), and the now-closed Neely's (on Jefferson). Central BBQ was okay, maybe not quite as good as the rest of these. Definitely did not like the airport outposts of Corky's or Interstate, no idea if the original locations are good. Didn't get to places like Cozy Corner, Germantown Commissary, Payne's, or Rendezvous (last two were closed for vacation at the time).

Impossible question to answer. Real BBQ is so ethereal. It's so dependent on the conditions on the particular day. Quality of the meat, the temp/humidity, the wood, how much sleep the pitmaster had that day..... For me the best BBQ is the one Google says is closest when the mood strikes. I'm perfectly happy with our local Famous Dave's. That said being from the Northeast I dream about places like Lockhart, Austin, Memphis....
