Battle of the BBQ!!
Updated: August 20, 2008
The battle for barbecue supremacy will take place this Friday in Luling, Texas when the Lockhart Lions come to town for a scrimmage. Sure, it's not a regular season game, but its a great chance to eat some barbecue while covering Texas high school football. We are talking two of the Lone Star State's greatest things together at one time - football and barbecue!
Luling and Lockhart have long been part of the ongoing debate over who makes the best barbecue in Texas. I personally have traveled the state with the express purpose of finding the best brisket, ribs, and sausage and can tell you that the winner is definitely in one of these two cities. After thousands of barbecue meals both great and horrible, it is clear that Lockhart and Luling have won my heart and stomach over.
Look for the show covering the scrimmage to be available online in the wee hours of Saturday morning (if I can still move after eating all that great food.)
