We’re traveling home later this month and will be eating nothing but barbecue and Tex-Mex for the duration of our visit.
A meal of smoked brisket used to be a cheap way to take the family out for supper, give mom a night off in the kitchen and sit a spell in an old smokehouse eating slabs of the best meat on earth: Texas barbecue.
Those days are gone but we’re not going to let that stop us from eating like kings in Central Texas. It just takes a little planning to make sure we’re getting the most bang for our hard-earned dollars.
Here’s Austin’s current brisket prices at a handful of places we rang up this morning while we were in research mode.
John Mueller Meat Company $19.98
Stiles Switch $18.74
LA Barbecue $20
County Line $20.48
We once penned an article on what might happen if Aaron Franklin began charging $50 a pound for brisket
