Best of 2008: Best Brisket

When you think Texas BBQ, you probably think beef. Most likely, you think beef brisket. It's pure Texas, arguably Texas BBQ's signature item. Thus, it's our last Best of 2008 individual-item award. We tasted some outstanding slices of slow-smoked brisket in 2008. Of the 17 places where at least two people tried the brisket, here are the Top 5:

1. Snow's BBQ (Lexington, Texas): 9.612

2. Louie Mueller Barbecue (Taylor, Texas): 9.43625

3. City Market (Luling, Texas): 8.76

4. Smitty's (Lockhart, Texas): 8.751

5. Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q (Austin, Texas): 8.6
