After starting Day 2 of our late-December BBQ tour at Cooper's in Llano, we drove our Texas Q Tours crew back down Hwy 71 to Spicewood and pulled into the parking lot of Opie's Barbecue, for their 2nd meal of the day.
Once inside, the crew took a look at the array of proteins and started placing their orders.
Then, they settled into with huge spreads and went to work.
After they stuffed themselves, they got a private tour of the pit from pitmaster Marco Oglesby, who'd just returned to work after being sick for a time (Welcome back, Marco. We're glad you're better!).
Before leaving, the group paused for a photo in front of the serving pit...
...and then did some clowing around outside in front of the old roadside smoker!
Back in the van and off for some non-BBQ stuff before their final BBQ meal of the trip...
