I wanted to treat my sister to legitimate Texas barbecue, so I took her up to Lockhart. I wanted to go to Black’s, but the line was ridiculous. I chose instead to take her to Kreuz Market. Kreuz is famous for their sausage. Mr. Rick Schmidt explains the history of Kreuz Market in this YouTube clip:
Here’s what I can tell you about Kreuz Market. The sausage, as I’ve written before is outstanding. You should try the jalapeno cheese sausage if you’re ever there. The shoulder clod is also very good; in fact my sister was really surprised at how good the clod was. I got a piece that was kind of burned up, it was delicious. I guess the turkey was good; my sister wanted it but they were out.
Just in case you haven’t seen Black’s or my previous article on it, here’s a video:
I would like to say, your barbecue tastes are the best. Meaning there is no standard. Its whatever you like. That’s how come you’ll view someone saying the brisket is greasy; then someone else at the same place will say the brisket is dry. My wife doesn’t like the best barbecue place in San Antonio not named The Granary. Rudy’s does well as a local place, but The Granary is kind of awesome. As in, entire United States kind of awesome.
