Jerky in Texas-lost the name of a place

I was reading in the General Chow Board about quality beef jerky. There was a place named, Woody's Smokehouse in Centerville, Tx. It might be the place I am looking for, but I'm not sure. Has anyone been there?

I live in Houston, and it was on a road trip to either Waxahachie, San Marcos, or San Antonio. I know that is pretty vague, sorry! The place I am looking for was next to a truck stop. close to the highway. When you walked in the doors, there was a meat counter on the left, full of different smoked meats, jerky (all kinds), cheeses, deli meat, sausages, etc. I think there were tables around the meat case where you could have fresh deli sandwiches. On the left side of the place it looked like a convenience store/country store, with the usual assortment of chips, drinks, etc, but also had a lot of jams, jellies and pickled items. Not the types you could get in your local store - a store brand. I even brought home a catalog, but it is long gone. This place was not full of your usual country type gift items. It was a more masculine place than, let's say, Cracker Barrel.

I will drive as far as I have to for great jerky and I remember this place had some of the best. The venison was especially good, and I think we got buffalo as well.

Any help would be appreciated.
