Get Me to Snow's On Time!

We finally had a Saturday morning when we were in Central Texas and decided to see what all the hype of Snow's Barbecue in Lexington was all about. I had read they opened at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday (the only day they are open) and that they cooked a limited amount of barbecue and when they sold out that was it. Their website recommends you come early. They aren't kidding. We got there about 11:15 and they were already out of chicken, ribs, sausage, potato salad and coleslaw. They had a couple of pieces of pork and one whole brisket left. We got all the pork and most of the brisket (some to eat there and some wrapped up to bring home.) We got some light bread, jalapenos and pickles and a couple of glasses of tea and went outside to one of their tables to eat.

Now I know what the hype is about. The pork was good. The brisket was the best I've ever had. Fairly lean but moist. Falling apart yet al dente. Succulent is the word that comes to mind. Beautiful smoke ring and a fabulous aroma. According to Kerry Bexley, the owner, they season it with only salt and pepper. They have sauce but I don't have any idea what it tastes like. Couldn't see any percentage screwing up good meat. And this is good meat.
