Simon from Denmark meets BBQ from Texas

Written by 

So when Derek and I were out and about our first day at SXSW we stopped by a bar to get a beer. We sat next to a fellow with long hair and looked to be a bit in the metal scene. my initial thought was this guy is from Dallas. Well we got to talking and turns out I was way off! He was from Denmark (hence the title) and like everyone else was there for the music. We ended up hanging out talking over quite a few beers. Before leaving he wanted to have an authentic Texas meal and found this great place called Blacks BBQ. So we took him there and I have to admit being a native Texan it is one of the bests BBQ joints I have eaten at in a long time.

I decided to get a rack of ribs everyone else went for that and some brisket. The ribs were especially good and you could pull all the meat off with one pull.

We had a lot of good times during a short period of time. Now I very much look forward to visiting Denmark and seeing Simon once again. Also eating an authentic native Danish meal there and of course washing it down with some cold local beer.


I have always had an intense curiosity for just about everything. I used to get lost for a second studying the crowd, while I was young and playing baseball. I used to think it was add or just being young but now I realized I was interested in culture mannerisms and other peoples experience. So when I got to travel all the dots connected and it felt sublime. I love exploring and hope to do it for the rest of my life.

Definitely a tough choice indeed. The Salt Lick is pretty damn good...actually just went to the original in Driftwood for the first time a cpl weeks ago. The fact is was BYOB made the BBQ taste that much better LOL. Also found several other random mom-and-pop restaurants on the road in various states...

Yes, it can be tough "research" indeed but someone has to do it ;)

I'm torn...that's like picking a favorite child! The Salt Lick in Austin was phenomenal. The ribs at Dreamland in Huntsville, Al are great, too. But there used to be a place in Tallahassee, FL called Tiny's that takes the cake. Too bad they are closed for business now.
