the weekend edition , July 1st, has a real good article on "hitting the smoky trail" in the USA.
They loved Smitty's in Lockhart, Texas, and enjoyed pulled pork at Bozo's Hot Pit BBQ in Mason Tenn. (where that is the specialty , as there is no brisket or ribs there ) (shucks!)
The writer thought that Arthur Bryants was "servicable but not exciting"
And I learned of a new place in NYC, called The Hill Country, on 30 East 26th St. Can't wait to try it, as it says it's the Lockhart, Texas style!!
