Back in May, I had the pleasure of taking an Australian couple on a BBQ tour. They wanted to get a taste & feel for Central Texas BBQ joints, since they run a BBQ company (Smokin' Barry's) in Melbourne. I took them to Opie's (Spicewood), Hays County (San Marcos), Black's (Lockhart), & Valentina's (Austin). They were an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. I meant to post the pictures long before now, but better late than never! First stop: Opie's. After the meal, owner Kristin Ashmore was kind enough to spend time outside by the smokers talking shop with my clients.
