Smitty’s Market Barbecue, Lockhart, TX

Wow it has been a long time since I last blogged!  So much has been going on and I just felt like taking a break.  But I am getting back-logged with projects I want to share, so I’m revving back up, here we go…..

First up are some images I took at BBQ mecca Smitty’s Market in “The Barbeque Capital of Texas.”  We made a quick stop there on way from East Texas to South Texas and it was so amazing we just couldn’t leave.  The employees and owner said “take all the photos you want” and I had a blast.  The longer I shot the hungrier we got, so we finished off the visit with a feast.  Of course the food and hospitality were outstanding!  My son says “that is the best food I’ve ever had” and he wears his Smitty’s t-shirt proudly.  Thanks also for inspiration from esteemed photographer Wyatt McSpadden who introduced me to Texas barbeque history via his wonderful Texas BBQ book.

This is an old border I added from a scanned antique print, thought it was fitting!
