Today Kyle and I drove down to Austin (area) for our first visit to The Salt Lick BBQ. I saw it on the Food Network a while ago, and figured it should be on our Texas bucket list before we move back North. Kyle is a much bigger barbecue person than I am, it's rarely my choice for dinner, but I was excited to visit and try this place people rave about. It was really good, everything on the plate. Kyle and I both got brisket and ribs; it was very moist and the sauce was delicious. Oddly enough I think the cole slaw was my favorite (also the bread); it was light and simple with roasted sesame seeds. The location was beautiful, too. Totally a place I would pick for a wedding (hopefully on a less rainy day). I think this would be a great place to take people if they come visit us and we spend a day in Austin; definitely the best barbecue we've had down here. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the pit, but maybe next time.
