Went to Donn's on FM 969 today after a dry spell of no BBQ. Showed up at 2pm and the place was busy! Seems like the word is out. However, sometimes when a Q joint gets popular they tend to let quality slip, trying to serve the hordes. Sometimes. Brisket today was not it's usual goodness. A tad on the fatty side.

Half pound of brisket and 2 small things of Nanner pudding was 11 bucks and change. Price is creeping up too.

That tends to be the trend...Franklins took a $2 a pound increase after Texas Monthly featured them

Franklin's Fri the 17th

I'm not technically riding TO Franklin's in Austin, but plan to check it out for the first time Fri the 17th, and I'll have a bike in town. I'm staying at the Ocho (Super 8) a block and a half away and should be in line by 9:30 or so. All welcome...


Never mind - hay in the field. I'll be baling out ... and baling hay. Another time!

Try the mom and pop place on the south side of Llano on 16. The name escapes me at the moment but it was good and it was cheap. Combo with tea for $9.

Ding ding ding, we have a winner. Yep thats it. The day I was there they came around with free pecan pie for everyone. I wonder if Coopers does that after you fork over $20 for the same thing?

Free is not in Mr. Cooper's vocabulary.
