Best hole-in-the-wall BBQ joints across America

Cheapism Logo By Andrew Lisa of Cheapism | Slide 2 of 29: Lockhart, TexasIf what the city has long claimed is true, that Lockhart really is the barbecue capital of Texas, you could argue for starting this list with Black's, Chisholm Trail, or any of the other staples that keep the hungry and curious flocking to town from nearby Austin and beyond. But we chose to start the list with Kreuz Market, where the work gets done in German meat-market-style brick pits. The place is famous for its brisket, but it would be morally wrong to leave without trying the smoked sausage.
