We were driving around Austin and saw what looked like a school bus that has been turned into some kind of giant smoker. There was no way we weren’t going to check it out.
We first visited Snow’s BBQ in Lexington, Texas in 2008, after Texas Monthly ranked them the #1 barbecue place in Texas. They weren’t wrong. We were wowed, and we’ve been back three times since that first visit.
Of the tens of thousands of digital photos I’ve taken, this is my favorite. It says: you have a family of amazing friends who will meet you in Texas and drive out into farm towns to eat the best brisket on earth.
