Barbecue is in Texas' bloodlines, and the state does the smoked meat properly. Yes, everyone knows about the Lone Star State’s absolute best barbecue spots, from Austin to Dallas to Houston, but what about those smoked meat joints elsewhere, perhaps the picturesque Hill Country? The region is more than just areas for antiquing, swimming, hiking, and posing with bluebonnets.
With that, Eater mapped out the best Hill Country barbecue destinations in Texas. There’s the original Cooper’s Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que in Llano, Opie’s Barbecue’s pork chops in Spicewood, Hays County Barbeque and music, and yes, the atmospheric grounds and pit of Driftwood’s Salt Lick BBQ, among others.
Everything below is listed in geographical order, from north to south. If your favorite Hill Country Barbecue spot is missing below, let Eater know through the tipline, within the comments, or over on the forum.Read More
