  • Micklethwait's homemade sausagevarieties like duck and cherry, lamb and apricot, which rotate dailyis what truly distinguishes his operation. Even the beef sausage is moist and snappy.
  • The Sliced pork shoulder, lamb chorizo and jalapeo grits were incredible.
  • Skip the longer wait lines at Franklin's & La BBQ... Mickelthwait's Craft Meats is for real
  • The brisket melts in your mouth! The lamb sausage is divine, coming from someone who's not a fan of any kind of sausage. Cheese grits were AMAZING. A nice southwest twist. The slaw was also en pointe.
  • This vintage 1960 Comet trailer serves all kinds of meat, from duck sausage to smoked brisket, and theyre all flat-out delicious. Micklethwait Craft Meats belongs up with the elite of Austin BBQ.
  • Jalapeo cheese grits might be the best BBQ side I've ever had
  • best beef ribs
  • Austin is having something of a bbq moment, in case you haven't noticed. Micklethwait has gotten its fair share of attention, but still flies under the radar by Austin bbq standards. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Hatch chili cheesy grits. So good.
  • Brisket and lamb was so tender and melted in your mouth. Side ranking: 1. Grits(just amazing) 2. Potato salad 3. Slaw (lemon pepper and poppyseed) 3. Beans. Tie for last two. Liked them both the least
  • The jalapeo cheese grits are absolutely outstandingly wonderful. Add to that outstanding brisket, delicious ribs and this is definitely a winner.
  • Brisket!!!! Bring water if you are going to stand in line.
  • Great brisket, great setup, love it
  • Fun place, good stuff
  • Pretty good bbq. Its a food truck so be prepared to BYOB!
  • Well, they ran out of brisket and beef ribs, but things that were top notch were the jalapeo cheddar sausages and pork ribs. Lamb was dry unfortunately.
  • Really moist, delicious brisket - you don't even need to use the BBQ sauce. I'd probably rank this at the same level or higher than Franklin Barbecue. Awesome sides and desserts (peanut butter pie)
  • Top 50 in Texas for a reason. Great moist brisket. They also have interesting and tasty sausages that aren't your typical flavors.
  • Great outdoor BBQ spot. Brisket was good but the pork spareribs were the true winner. Cheese grits and slaw are the best sides.
  • The food is delicious, some of the best BBQ in town, BUT...I have gotten sick from the sausage twice. Beware the sausage.
