We tried the brisket and the pulled pork with sauces. We also had mashed potato salad for the first time. It was funny because we were so tired and looking on the bar for the potato salad. It was right in front of us just mashed. The sauce is different in Texas than South Carolina, it was a sweet peppery sauce. We are so used to mustard based around here until it took a little getting used to theirs but it was good!
We did enjoy ourselves there even though we were something tired from the trip.
Unbeknownst to me Chuck had told The Wheeler's that he had to have him some Texas BBQ so they obliged and we had it a few times at their home. It was delicious too of course. They also wanted to take us to another BBQ place that they enjoyed so off we went. They know the owners so it was a fun night for all of us. Jimmie Ray and Susie went too!

Texas has made me a lover of smoked brisket! As a matter of fact my butcher here at home had a beautiful brisket and it had to go home with me. The weather was awful here in SC so I slow cooked it in the oven with artificial smoke...it was good but I like it better smoked outside!

I don't know why I would be surprised at the amount of beef they ate, after all I was in Texas! Duh, blonde/grey moment for me. It was delicious! I wish we had some here in South Carolina that would taste like theirs!

The sausage was good too. They have regular and Jalapeno sausage. Delicious! They also have pulled pork and pork ribs with delicious sides!
What we learned about the Texas BBQ was that it was Delicious! Smokey! Sweet and Peppery! They like beef more than pork and I now have an appreciation for brisket. The talk of Texas as I saw it was Brisket!
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I! Wish we could pull it off the page and eat it!
