Brown's BBQ in Austin. South Lamar. Beef ribs: small but have good flavor. If they were cooked any longer they would have become tough. The brisket had very good taste a little bit of a smoke ring but the fat should've been rendered down unlock more on the moist cut. The lien cut was very good and tender. The sauce had a sweetness to it that was just a bad right but could've used a little pepper. I had two sides the coleslaw and the mac & cheese. The coleslaw was too vinegary but the mac & cheese was quite good but had a Val Vita cheese taste to it. All in all I would give it a 3 1/2 out of five stars for the ribs and for the lean brisket I'd give it a four out of five. For the moist have to give it two out of five just because half of the meat I got was just fat size since they paid $14 a pound for half of what I should've got if you go make sure that they trim the moist before they weigh it

@Rafter J's in Iowa Park. Passed this place for sometime. Curious about a BBQ and Canjun food place. They do not have ribs on the two meat plate. I ordered ribs while my husband ordered sliced brisket and sausage. The ribs had a good texture and were tender. No spice that I could tell were on the ribs. BBQ sauce is tangy and slightly sweet. The ribs do benefit from the sauce. Sausage is an Eckridge type. Brisket did not have much of a smoke ring snd was a little dry. There was not much in the way of spices on the brisket. The brisket did have a little bit of bark but not much and some smoke flavor. Next we will try the Canjun fair.

Wet brisket was great. Pork spare red dry and not cleaned. Good meal over all.

Had the brisket and pork ribs. Both excellent. Just the right amount of smoke.

A heavy chipotle rub on the ribs, a little chewy.

Caught the very end of lunch service. Good brisket, turkey, and pulled pork, but the bread was the star!

Brisket nice and moist with lots of smoke. Love that hot sauce! The star of the show is the mutton, though!! Something new for me and can't wait to eat it again!!

Always a great place for brisket. Had a sliced sandwich. Very good today.

If I had it my way, City Market in Schulenburg would have a warning sign on their barbecue menu: “Pit in use only on Saturday, microwaves the rest of the week.” You see, first and foremost this is a meat market. Making sausage (including weiners) is their biggest business, on the order of five tons per week. Barbecue is secondary, except on Saturday. It had been almost three years since my last visit, which was…
