At Smittys they serve up real Texas barbeque: beef that gets a dry rub before getting roasted over an open wood fire pit for 4-6 hours.

May be the best BBQ in the state - certainly toward the top of the list.

Try the Sausage

This place is BYOF (Bring Your Own Fork). They expect you to eat the meat with your hands. So wash up. They do have plastic spoons & knives.

No credit cards, no plates, no forks, no sauce - no problem. Best ribs ever!

If you're going to make a BBQ pilgrimage, forget the Salt Lick and head out to Lockhart for Smitty's, Kreuz's and/or Black's.

Get one pork chop for your group. it's a half pound of the best pig ever.

Don't be fooled by the looks of the place. The brisket here is the best I've ever had! Definitely worth a stop if you're nearby!

You can't go wrong with the pork ribs.
Saturday, February 26, 2011 - 09:19
The sausage is certainly dripping with oil, if you like that kind of thing.

Ribs are my meat of choice when eating BBQ and Smitty's has the best in town. A favorite of all those involved in #thegreatbbqescape and should not be missed.

Great Brisket ! Sausage greasy (ask for dry) bring cash!!!
Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - 12:30
If you want to use a fork, bring your own.
Saturday, April 20, 2013 - 18:58
Fyi: cold ring = uncooked sausage (good for cook@home). Shoulder is lean brisket (less fat) Brisket is fatty. Either, or, you cant go wrong!

This is simply some of the best BBQ in the nation! BBQ done right... Order by the pound straight off the pit... Served on butcher paper... Cash only... No forks... Family style seating... Enough said!

Try the prime rib. It had plenty of flavor and a nice thick crust ogre seasoning !

If coming with a group of friends, have one person order the food, on drinks and sides an park the rest at a long table.
