Where I stayed
Lockhart State Park
This afternoon we joined Donna and John for a trip to the Spoetzl brewery for a tour of the plant and some free samples
This evening John and I made a trip into Lockhart to pick up Texas ribs for dinner. A trip to Kreuz Market was a real experience. There was even a helicopter parked in the lot! Someone had flown in for ribs! Lockhart is about the size of Carleton Place and it has four famous rib outlets. We will have to sample the others on another trip! Kreuz is set up in a casual style similar to our pancake houses with picnic tables and plastic cloths. You line up to place your order and they cut your order while you watch. There are six(?) smokers the size of some of our largest syrup evaporators at home and they burn post oak at one end with the smoke passing over the meat and out a large chimney at the furthest end. Once again, the Duncan 'Beast' was the scene for a great evening of Texan food and discussion.
