9/29/13 11:38am - Heading back from the deer lease to Houston, I wanted to swing through Lockhart for lunch. My daughter insisted on Chick-fil-a and pointed out everyone on the way. The last one she pointed out we near Fuschak's. It got Honorable Mention in Texas Monthly 2008 and has been in business since 1966.
I scored Fuschak's a 78 out of 100. This is Regional Texas BBQ.
Smoke: Witness stacks of oak. Previous reviews mention both oak and mesquite. There is a screened in smoke house in the back. Unfortunately its full of Ole Hickory gassers.
Brisket: Good. A 1/4in dark red smoke ring beneath a substantial black bark. Thin sliced with just the right amount of smoke. Tough of tender and finished a little dry. Overall flavor was pleasant with slight salty rub. use the sauce because of the dryness.
Ribs: Very Good. Big meaty spare ribs. Tender soft bite with slight dirty bone. A great black pepper rub and strong salty pork flavor. No sauce needed.
Sausage: Fair. A grease bomb. A course ground pork link with traditional spice and strong salt. Mild after taste. Use the sauce and plenty of napkins to clean up the grease explosion.
Sauce: Good. A bit strange. It was thick dark brown and sweet. Had strong butter, onion, brown sugar and molasses flavor. It was clumpy and sticky. Not a signature sauce.
PS: Portions are insane! Four sides with my 3 meat plate! I packed a serious to go box.
