BBQ

Real bbq aficionados know: sometimes quality barbecue comes from admittedly sketchy-looking places. The parking lot of this minimally labeled metal shack just west of Abilene is usually entirely taken by semi trucks, but finding a spot amidst them will get you a well-deserved award of succulent Texas-style smoked meats. Ribs barely stay on the bone, and sauce-slatered briskets give way to a fork alone.
