Milt's Pit BBQ - Kyle

It's on the west side of I-35 just on the north edge of Kyle. Stopped on a whim on the way to San Marcos and wow, just wow. This is some good BBQ. All around. Everything was top notch.

I'm scared to admit it but I think this is the best brisket I've had in a couple of years. My previous favorite was John Mueller's on Manor.

The brisket had a nice thick pitch black crust, but very juicy and extremely tender. The sauce reminded me of south Texas sop sauce instead of BBQ sauce - a very very good thing. Nice bit of vinegar that complimented the meat but didn't make it taste like just sauce.

Sausage was very good. Touted to be "Lockhart" sausage but I thought it was better than that. Nice pop to casing and just enough grease to make you feel good.

The beans were the best I've had in the area. Period. Cooked with fatty brisket and some of the sauce. Very good and smokey.

The potato salad was very good. It looked like it was gonna be too wet for my taste but was very good. Mayonaise, onion, lots of pickles, some parsley. That's about it. One of the better potato salads in the area.

I really hope this wasn't just their one good day I happened to show up for. I was very impressed. I hope someone else can stop and see if it holds up another day.

For the record, my favorite BBQ places are/were Coopers, Southwest Market (defunct), John Muellers (defunct), and House Park.
