On the Texas BBQ Trail

Louie Mueller BBQ

We went to Louie Mueller BBQ and boy was it good! Check out the first in a five part series on Central Texas Barbeque, “Queing Up in Central Texas“.

When talking about the barbeque of central Texas it means two things, tradition and beef. The origin of selling smoked meats out the back alley door of a meat market or butcher shop is evident in a couple of the places we will visit in the series. In the early days the meat market would smoke and sell some of the cheaper or less desirable cuts out the back of the shops to the field and farm workers with nothing more than a few saltine crackers or a couple slices of bread, no sides, no sauce. Later this became the the focus of the business, birthing a strong barbeque tradition. In other parts of the country you say “barbeque” and this means pork cooked slow and low. Oh, how I love these porcine delights but in the heart of Texas beef reigns as king and pork takes a back seat if appearing at all. In this series we will visit the establishments in the barbeque mecca of Lockhart, (Smitty’s, Kreutz’s and Blacks) City Market in Luling, Sam’s in Austin and Louie Mueller BBQ in Taylor.
