If you ask almost anyone in Austin, Texas where you can get good BBQ 8 out of 10 are going to tell you The Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood. Driftwood is about 30 minutes outside of Austin and hosts 5 wineries. I started to do some research of The Salt Lick and I found out what made this BBQ so different. Their website describes it,
" The Bar-B-Que sauce has no tomatoes so it won’t burn or become bitter. It does have sugar – a Southeastern tradition – so it will easily caramelize. We sear the meat and then move it away from the hottest part of the fire to cook slowly. We finish our products over an open fire fed by live oak wood.
After reading this I had to visit. Amazing BBQ and the cobbler was to die for. I got a mix of Peach and Blackberry Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream. MMMMMM
