On Saturday, I took a day trip to Lockhart Texas.
I've been wanting to explore areas I haven't been to yet. I started out visiting Lockhart State Park.
I ended up hiking 4 1/2 miles around the whole park. The interesting thing about the park, is that there's a 9 hole golf course in the middle of the state park.
I haven't played golf in many years, but I did find a DISC Golf Course in Lockhart, which I decided to play.
It's a short 9-hole course, but lots of trees. Even still, I ended up shooting par.
The MAIN attraction of Lockhart for most people is the BBQ. In fact, it's the "BBQ Capitol of Texas".
Some people do a BBQ crawl with the 4 big BBQ joints. I only wanted to hit 1 of them, so I went to the oldest BBQ joint in Texas.
I got there around 1pm, and the line was still out the door. It ended up being about a 25 minute wait, but the food was WELL worth the wait.
I got the brisket, a sausage ring, cornbread and iced tea. The meat was excellent. It may have been the best tasting sausage I have ever had. The brisket was tasty too, and I split eating it with and w/o their own bbq sauce.
If you like BBQ, I'd highly recommend it! By the way the other 3 BBQ joints in town, Smittys, Chisolm Trail BBQ, and the Kreutz.
It's just under a 2 hour drive there, which is why I wanted to do MORE than just hit the BBQ joint.
