From Texas Standard:
It's been said that if you want an introduction to Texas barbecue, you should hit the Texas barbecue trail. It's a track that takes you from Taylor to Elgin to Lockhart, and finally ends in Luling.
But really, that's just central Texas. As most of you know, there's a whole lot more of Texas to taste – like the southeast corner of Texas, where beef links trump brisket.
