I read somewhere, that people used various grasses along with woods to smoke meats.

Texas BBQ was stated by German immigrants that had smokehouses. That's why you'll still see a lot of German influence in the joints there...

Very true. I have an aunt in Texas and majority of the places there have roots in german heritage. They make a sausage there called elgin sausage and it is amazing but almost impossible to find a recipe for because it's all family recipes and those people guard it with their life. The very few you find online are not even close to the real deal.

Last time we went to Texas, we chose Austin airport for one reason and one reason only. To go to Franklin bbq. Best brisket I've ever had in my life. Got there 2 hours before opening and we were already number 8 in line.

My dear sweet ma lives in Georgetown just north of Austin.

 

I've been skunked ever 'dang time I've tried to get to Franklin when visiting her.

 

Black's in Lockhart thus far has the best brisket I've ever eaten.

 

But alas Franklin...

Make sure you get there early. They open at 11 and usually sell out by 2.

Back on topic.

 

Smokehouses.

 

1969.

 

Pop was flying a C-54 out of Tan Son Nhut in the Nam.

 

I was in the 6th grade living in Dundee, MI.

 

I was playing the clarinet trying to get next to Maureen Bondy.

 

Mom would give me a coupla' dollars and I'd jump on my Murray Stingray with the banana seat, sissy bar, ape hangers, and rear tire slick and go uptown to our local butcher.

 

It was a butcher shop that just happened to also sell bread and milk.

 

I'd pickup 2 gallons of milk, a coupla' loaves of bread, 5 pounds of hamburger, and 2 huge colbase and come home with change.

 

I'm 100% bohunk from both sides of the family.

 

The guys at the butcher shop made the best hungarian colbase I've ever tasted and we ate A LOT of it.

 

The best part I remember about the joint is that it never smelt like butcher joint.

 

Even though they literally butchered whole carcasses.

 

The place always smelled like smoke.

 

I can still smell it.

 

I remember a friend that year turned me on to Iron Butterfly.

 

Ina-Gada-Da-Vida.

 

My brothers burned down grandma's barn.

 

Pop came home.

 

Maureen Bondy.

 

MAUREEN BONDY!!!!

Austin was interesting from what I saw. Kinda like being in LA except everyone is a damn musician. I also saw more knitted oversized beanies than I care to see in a lifetime. Bunch of college kids trying to fit into the weirdness that is in fact, Austin. haha

You ain't wrong on that.

 

Austin is the closest to being in Texas without being in Texas.

 

But I still love Texas and Austin.

 

But I'm a hungarian living in DFW so what do I know anyhow.
