BBQ Road Trips (from Austin, TX)

Even barbecue needs a day of rest
Let’s keep riding this meat-market train. About 77 miles northeast of Gonzales (and 55 miles west of Austin) is the town of Giddings, where Gerald Birkelbach and his wife, Sharon, run City Meat Market. Gerald mans the hundreds of pounds of oak-smoked meats they serve up six days a week (sorry, Sunday visitors to Giddings), while Sharon handles the front of the house with a smile as friendly as the Texas sky is big. The sausage is made fresh every day. The pork shoulder is a must as is a conversation with Gerald, who is one of a kind.
