Dizzy’s “Salt Peanuts” (1947)

3 Aug

Another in our continuing series of Great Food Songs. Enjoy Dizzy Gillespie performing “Salt Peanuts.” The introduction alone is worth your time and attention. I believe that is the amazing Max Roach on drums.

Texas’ Best BBQ

3 Aug

Texas magazine’s June 2008 issue was their BBQ issue. They did a great job of seeking out the very finest Q the Lone Star State has to offer. Many of our favorites are included, but there are also several new contenders we have not tried yet. Really interesting stuff — with lots of great pictures and video too!

Smitty’s Market in Lockhart, TX

Smitty’s is one of our faves. The place is incredibly old school & smoky.

For all the details on Smitty’s and the other Top 49 rated BBQ joints in Texas, we invite you to visit the link below. Thanks to Texas magazine for taking the time to compile all this valuable info. All these eateries need to be supported and kept alive for generations to come.
