The Great Debate

When it comes to barbecue, an infinite debate exists on exactly where in these great United States holds claim to “the best.” As a self-professed aficionado of seared meats, I can tell you that our little corner of the world here in Central Texas is home to some of the finest – if not THE FINEST – BBQ on the planet. Recent stops at two of my area favorites reconfirm this claim – Franklin Barbecue here in Austin and Cooper’s Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que up in Llano. Quite simply, the life-altering brisket and ribs (and entire experience waiting in line) puts Franklin in a league all its own and, without question, my personal favorite. And, also well worth mentioning, the sausage – both regular and jalapeno – at Cooper’s rank among the best in my book, as well. So…stop what you’re doing and get you some ‘cue!
