Best BBQ within the Austin City Limits

Today we talked about the best BBQ within the Austin City Limits. If you listened, you know that I was pushing hard to talk about BBQ in Texas, or at least Central Texas. Andy wanted to talk about where you might take an out-of-towner if they didn’t have time to drive 20 minutes outside of Austin to hit the Salt Lick or Smitty’s or Kreutz or Snow’s.
My picks are Green Mesquite for down home BBQ and Lockhart if you don’t mind your BBQ a little on the fancy side. Check …

Mid-Summer Tasty Touring Linkdown: The Tasty Bits

I learned through Natanya’s Fete and Feast blog that (512) Brewing Company is having a party to celebrate their 1st anniversary this Saturday from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. If you’re legal to drink, you can tour the brewery, listen to live music, and maybe even leave with a free gift. More info here.
After stopping by (512), come out and meet me at One 2 One Bar downtown for the Cupcake Smackdown hosted by Jennie Chen, MisoHungry Makes it With Moonshine blogger and “cupcake fairy” of Central Texas. The event …

Meatless Balls: Four Meals in the Four Corners

While I may not be blogging about the restaurants on this particular trip to Colorado, I did enjoy some amazing fried chicken at Southern Vittles in Lake City, fresh salsa and enchiladas at Buen Tiempo in Ouray, fish tacos at Steamworks Brewery in Durango, and an Elk burger at Handlebars in Silverton (pictured below).
At Handlebars, I was trying to decide between Elk and Buffalo after I realized I wouldn’t be able to stomach the Rocky Mountain Oysters. I was sick the night before after going four wheeling at 13,000 feet …

Navajo Fry Bread: Four Meals in the Four Corners

I’ve been in Durango, Colorado, in the four corners region of the U.S. for the past week and today is my last day. I’m planning to share a series of four blogs, called “four meals in the four corners,” to share recipes, experiences, and photos of the trip.
