I am from Evanston, Illinois. My family and I will be in Austin this weekend. A pilgrimage to Lockhart to visit Kreuz, Black's, Smitty's is on the agenda. I have never been to these places and I have been looking forward to this for years.
Because of some other activities planned, it may be best for me to make a late Saturday or Sunday afternoon trip to Lockhart and bring all the food back and eat dinner at the hotel. Is this advisable? Is is better to go earlier? Is Saturday better than Sunday? Will the food last til dinner? (yes, I know I will be picking at it! I mean is it OK to leave it in a bag for a few hours?) When is the best time to go on a weekend to get the best selection of meats?
I dont see me dragging the family to three separate meals in three places; it just feels right to have the food all laid out at once. Of course, I will be sampling at each place!
Am I overthinking this?
Thanks in advance.
