Meyers' - Elgin Smokehouse

Ricardo Perez

In ongoing quest to find the best BBQ places in Texas we made a visit to Meyers' Elgin Smokehouse in Elgin, Texas. Elgin is in mostly in Bastrop County (part of it is in Travis County) and is about 30 miles East of Austin and 15 North of Bastrop. A small town with a population of approximately 8,000 served as the location for the filming of the 1974 movie, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', but it's more famous for its sausage.

As you walk into Meyers' there stands a huge sausage "Boss" press just to let you know that they are serious about their sausage making.
Walk through the retail market and there's a variety of sausages that'll make any sausage lover take a long pause to check out the lineup. Red banners telling us just how many awards those little links have snatched up during the years line the walls.
If you can get through the market section, the larger part of the establishment is the actual restaurant where a plate of BBQ runs about six or seven dollars. It's good food.
Over the years we've made a circle around San Antonio and Austin with our favorite BBQ locations and in the spring there's nothing better in Texas than a bluebonnet and BBQ ride. Linking our favorite restaurants together can make a very nice ride. We'll map them out make that run this spring.

Aunt Jo's BBQ
 Here's another BBQ place that's worth a stop if you're riding anywhere near Victoria, Texas.
Just South of Victoria on highway 77/59 as you speed North at 75mpg you may want to hit the brakes, hard, and make a quick turn into Aunt Jo's BBQ. It a welcome site where you can sit outside and enjoy good BBQed brisket, chicken, or pork. Aunt Jo's BBQ Urban Spoon Review  There's lot's of shady spots to relax and enjoy BBQ either on the plate or in a sandwich.
If you're hungry as you make your way to or from Houston you may want to give it a try just be careful trying to make that turn or crossing the highway.

Aunt Jo's

"When meat is cooked at high temperatures, amino acids react with creatine to form heterocyclic amines, which are thought to cause cancer." (from Harvard Health Letter - June 2007)

So which is worse, living to an old age or never having BBQ? You know my choice.
