5/17/13 12:00PM - A 5 star experience but 3 star barbecue. This is a great Texas barbecue excursion. Get a group of friends, get a cooler of Shiner, block out four hours and have the Texas time of your life. Every Texan needs to go at least once in their life. A great venue to hang out waiting for your table. Family style BBQ is great for groups.
I scored Salt Lick 81 out of 100. This is Regional Texas BBQ.
Smoke: Oak. Cowboy style pit. They cook and mop directly over the coals.
Brisket: Good. A 1/4in smoke ring. Soft black bark. Tough of tender hurt the
score. I had to use the knife. Good smoke and the sauce mop added a nice subtle
sweetness. No sauce needed.
Ribs: Very Good. Small spare ribs. Tender sift bite, clean bone and a little
tearing at the ends. Sweeten with same sauce mop. Good smoke and good flavor.
No sauce needed.
Sausage: Good. A pork/beef fine ground with mild traditional spice and little
after taste. A little greasy. Use the sauce.
Sauce: Good. No tomatoes in
this sauce. Its like a tangy smokey honey mustard. Its different but good.
