BBQ in Lockhart. Went there to sample the big three yesterday. Bought brisket at Black's and shoulder clod and pork chop at Kreuz and Smitty's. Brisket was one of the best ever (charred black on the outside and when sliced, rosy red ring and lean). Both meats at Smitty's were far superior to Kreuz. Pork chops were much heavier smoked and better seasoned at Smitty's. Kreuz chop was way salty and lacked smoke flavor. Shoulder meat at Smitty's was fresh cooked and very tasty for the much leaner than brisket meat. Shoulder at Kreuz appeared to have been around "awhile", was very dry and flavorless. Bottom line, Smitty's moves up on my list and Kreuz will not be seeing me for awhile.
