I'm going to be driving from El Paso to Alpine, from Alpine to Big Bend, and from Big Bend to Houston - probably along I-10. Any barbecue recommendations along that route would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Rudy's Leon Springs Texas IH 10 west of San Antonio. Get their turkey and their corn each are excellent.

Luling City Mkt. just off I 10. Ribs and brisket are great and the sausage is the old fashioned greasy type so you know it is good. Cash only.

Chinati Hot Springs. http://www.chinatihotsprings.com/ They have a pit and you can cook your own while you take a soak. The caretaker, David Sines, is an old metalworking buddy of mine from Dallas. He'll take care of you. Man, I miss Texas.

Same here. Go to Black's in Lockhart. Stubb's in Austin.

I can vouch for this...at this location.

Let's see...I had ribs, turkey, chicken, and brisket there, along with pit beans, creamed corn, and bread. Very Happy

While Chinati Hot Springs is way cool, it is definitely not any the way ANYWHERE. You have to make an effort to get there, and if you do, stay a few days and 'soak up' the ambiance! Also, as you're coming into Marfa from the west there is a great little authentic Mexican restaurant on the north side of US-90. Can't remember the name, but it's a white cinder block place almost at the edge of town.

Not a big Rudy's fan in general, but their creamed corn is the best on the planet!

Luling City market is best known for it's sausage - it's hard to find better in the state.

Lockhart is just a short hop up from I-10, and I'd suggest Black's BBQ or even Chisholm Trail over Kreuz and Smitty's.

mgwerks, when you said Big Bend, it was the first thing that came to my mind. Well, that and Santa Helena Canyon from a canoe, and Terlingua, and Stuby Butte, and LaJitas, and beer drinking goats.....Jeez I'm gonna' cry I miss Texas so much.

Sounds like you are in for a great trip. When you want to go the end of the line, remember Chinati Hot Springs. It's come a long way since my last trip there about 5yrs ago. We were still soaking in galanized troughs.

not to hijack the thread but Snows BBQ in Lexington is legit. I had to try it out when I was home last month and that is some of the best brisket I've ever had; anywhere.
