Before I shuffle off this mortal coil . . .

. . . someone has to take me to Lockhart, TX to eat at Smitty’s

Here’s what Tyler Cohen had to say a few years back.

The ingredients are simple: salt and pepper rub and meat to die for. Slow cooking in open pits. Schmitty's lets its pit spill over onto the restaurant floor; be careful not to step or fall into the fire when you walk in the door. Did I mention that town fire and safety regulations are lax and they have a friendly insurance agent with a taste for barbecue?

All other barbecue will now taste worse. At what discount rate, or at what implied rate of memory deterioration, am I better off for having been there? Or do seek something other than happiness through food?

Doesn’t that make you want to get on a plane!?!?
