Edgar Schmidt purchased Kreuz Market of Lockhart, TX in 1948 and turned it into one of Texas's legendary barbecue restaurants (see the review). Edgar died in 1990. A daughter of Edgar's ended up with the building housing Kreuz while two sons owned the business. In 1999, a disagreement resulted in a split of Kreuz: the sons moved Kreuz to another spot in town while the former Kreuz Market, under the daughter's ownership, became Smitty's, earning a stellar reputation of its own (see the review). Now, their descendents are joining forces in a new barbecue venture. Schmidt Family Barbecue will be opening in Bee Cave in the fall, in the Hill Country Galleria. Can't say we like the upscale shopping mall location but the Schmidt family pedigree should make this a barbecue spot to keep an eye on.


I hope this new place taste more like Smitty's. Kreuz is good bit a bit drier.
