The key word for the meats at Schmidt Family is moist, followed by the word tender. Expect no glazes, just smoke and spice. The original sausage is distinguished by a beefy flavor accented with pepper, garlic, and cayenne.

Bite down into some of the juiciest ribs, chicken, brisket, and tenderloin around at the closest family-style barbecue to the fairgrounds. This place also serves a mean breakfast.

Frankie Hoch started with a modified propane tank welded onto a trailer. Now he and his partners are mopping meat for Travis County barbecue fans, who say it's all good.
