As declared by the Texas Legislature, Lockhart is the Barbecue Capital of Texas. But which of the the town's 4 BBQ joints is the Capital of the Capital? Black's, Chisholm Trail, Kreuz, or Smitty's - which is your favorite (and why)?

Smitty's

Black's is my favorite. High quality BBQ with consistency. I've never had a bad meal there and I've probably eaten there 10 times. Their brisket always has great smoke flavor.

I've eaten at Smitty's 3 times and had good brisket ONCE. The other two times it was inedible. We threw an entire meal away on one trip because everything was tough as shoe leather.

Kreuz I've been to about 5 times. They are not as consistent as Black's and I have had good and average brisket and ribs there. However Kreuz sausage is always outstanding.

I have only eaten at Chisolm Trail once but the ribs there were pretty good. I really do need to go back there and give them another shot.

After eating in Lockhart several times: Kreuz 5 times, Smitty's 4 times, Black's 1 time and Chisolm 0 times...

My vote has to go to Smitty's which has been great every time. Black's was just OK the time I went, and Kreuz's has been superior to bad. Do I relaly need ot try Chisolm Trail?

I live in Lockhart so I've been to them all. They all have their strong points and I don't dislike any of them. Time and time again, though, I find myself always going back to Smitty's. Any time of the day, the brisket is perfect, pork chops are perfect as is the sausage. In my opinion the only thing on Smitty's menu that is just okay are the spare ribs. Luling City Market has the best ribs in the area hands down.

If you had asked me before the summer, I would say Smittys. Though during the summer I made 3 trips to Lockhart and tried them all each time (minus Chisholm and the place by the gas station, only did those 1 time each). Blacks has really surprised me with how good and consistent they have been each time. Smittys still wins ribs. Kreuz wins sausage. Overall, I give the slight nod to Blacks for now.

Twitter reply: "Kreuz and not even close. Smitty's has been bad the last 2 times. Blacks second place. Have not tried Chisholm Trail."
