Warning, and we're serious: unless you are within a day's drive of Texas Hill Country, or you are a vegetarian, do not under any circumstances view the above video on an empty stomach.

Steve Dolinsky joins some friends for a three day itinerary of Texas Hill Country barbecue (with a detour for Round Rock donuts [see the review], just like we did on the Roadfood Hill Country tour a few years back). Brisket, short ribs, prime rib, pork ribs, coarse-ground sausage, even turkey... it's all here, and it looks amazing. Best In Show? Franklin Barbecue in Austin!

The reviewed Q specialists among the nine:

Southside (see the review)
Kreuz (see the review)
Smitty's (see the review

The bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats I ate right before viewing did little to curb my drooling! Great video, photos and narrative!!! I've never craved barbecue more in my life!

Looks like the Chicago boys were on a little roadtrip! I loved the cheese with the meats, big hunks of cheddar and the pit ham they had...great! Brought on the meat sweats!
