Central Texas BBQ (Part I)

Last Friday I flew to Austin, Texas for my brother's birthday. After an enjoyable evening of libations with Oracle's Austin Data Center (ADC) posse, we hit the BBQ trail on Saturday afternoon. First stop, Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor, Texas -- "A Texas Tradition Since 1949."

This was my first visit to Louie Mueller's and certainly not my last. I enjoyed a hearty helping of smoked beef brisket, a Mexican-inspired chipotle sausage, a side of potato salad, BBQ sauce, pickles, onions and white bread. What can I say? except...YUMMEE! The brisket was lean and tender, possibly not as tender as Meyer's, but very flavorful and smoked to perfection; my favorite thus far. The chipotle sausage had a firm texture, medium-mild spiciness and a bold, smoky jalapeƱo flavor. The potato salad had a tad too much mustard for my taste. Last, but not least, the BBQ sauce was flavorful, yet somewhat subdued. It was the perfect accompaniment to the brisket.

Louie Mueller's atmosphere is authentic down to the smoke-stained walls. If your in the mood for genuine Texas barbecue and warm hospitality, stop by Louie Mueller's.
