Hill Country

I love fatty brisket. Especially when it’s from Texas. Well, whaddaya know, we’ve got authentic Central Texas style brisket right here in Manhattan! How I have waited this long to make my way over to Hill Country is beyond me. Thankfully, the wait has ended tonight. My meat twin and I happily engaged in a gluttonous (and glorious) barbecue fest, complete with fatty brisket, baby back ribs, pork belly, and a generous assortment of sides. I’m a fan of the format here: you go to the meat counter, order whatever your little heart desires, they wrap it in butcher paper, you sit down and go to town. As if this whole experience wasn’t awesome enough, we were double fisting Shiner bock (love that beer!) and Bulleit bourbon on the rocks. AND there was country music playing in the background. I think I’ve actually found heaven on earth!
