A Texan visits Hill Country BBQ

Ordered the moist brisket (as opposed to the lean), sausage and the creamed yams.

Both sets of meat were very good as were the yams. Except for all of the fat on the brisket.

Given that they charge you for the meat by the pound, I returned the fat to the counter, and had it cut from my bill. I understand that you're going to get more fat on the moist cut, but this was ridiculous. Make sure to check your meat before you walk away from the counter, and only pay what's edible.

They also offer crackers or white bread. Never been offered crackers before, but the white bread is pretty standard. There white bread was stale, so why offer it? Its those details that show this is not a Texan run operation. The meat is about as good as it gets in the city (much better than Blue Smoke - won't go back there, now that Hill Country is open in the same hood) and need another trip back to Dinosaur to compare - its been over a year. I am also a big Fette Sau (in Brooklyn) fan.
