meat with a side of meat

I have lived in Texas for more than six months now, and until this weekend I hadn't had a proper barbecue experience (Alex blamed himself). On Sunday afternoon we decided to go big or go home with a visit to the local, legendary joint The Salt Lick. I felt like a city girl visiting the country, but I couldn't resist taking a picture of the giant pit smothered in meat. Below is a close up shot of the smoking action:

The only way to go when you're eating on picnic tables under the glow of white Christmas lights is "family style," which includes all you can eat sausage, ribs and brisket. You'll also get pickles and white bread--I hear that's a Texas thing--along with baked beans, cole slaw and potato salad to round out your barbecue experience. Just remember to BYOB and hit up the ATM before driving out to Driftwood (cash only!).

Scout was a big fan of the lemonade and popcorn that we had as an "appetizer" before being seated.

Strollers (and babies) welcome.

Catcher skipped the meat course and saved room for dessert, which included peach and blackberry cobblers and a slice of pecan pie...all served with ice cream (duh).
