Living in Nashville, and well, this
part of the country you always here about good BBQ. I love to
eat - that’s no surprise to my friends and family - so I have tried
many of the great bbq eats here in Tennessee. Recently, I was
able to travel on a business trip with Dell. Oh man, was I excited -
"I am going to Austin Texas" and the food stories were amazing. The
more I thought about it the more excited I became..."Daddy needs a
gold fork for the food he will eat."...
I arrive and immediately begin tasting
the normal TexMex, pluckers and Whataburger - all of them great food
- but not much like the eats in Tennessee. Finally, on the last day
of our training session, we were told that we were going to need a
place to chill because we're about to be too full to do anything
else....we were told to follow the leader (for about 20 minutes) to
a small, peaceful, Mayberry-type town. Taylor, Texas...umm, I
could get use to living in a place that carries my last name!
Anyway, we pull up and it's this older-style building with a nice
wood-smoke smell. I first thought...heh, some ma and pa place...little
did I know I had another thing coming.
We walk in, get a nice, BIG glass of
lemonade, walk to the counter and behind it sits these very nice
meat mounds of Brisket, Pork Ribs and Sausage. My tummy immediately
began growling! I ordered all 3 meats and My Goodness, what a plate
of meat! The nice lady asked if I cared for any sides but I
said...oh no that’s...that's it for me.
We sat down and began to eat - I was
in heaven! The food was so good, it was like no other taste I
have ever had! Since my return to Nashville, I I came into a
conversation about best BBQ. I said no to all places nominated
- I said if you want real BBQ, let's head to Taylor, Texas...Louie
Thanks for the food and the memories
of my trip to Austin.
Warm regards from Tennessee.
