Pitmaster Frankie Hoch was born in Hallettsville, Texas. Don’t know Halletsville? Well it’s the home of the Texas Fiddle Championship – Fiddlers Frolick. Frankie largely taught himself how to BBQ. Lots of practice and years of experience allows him to know how to perfectly slow smoke some of the tastiest BBQ brisket in all of Texas(right on Hwy. 71 in Spicewood near Poodie’s Hilltop Saloon – which serves up great old school C&W). He slow smokes his briskets around 13 hours over post oak. It has just the right amount of smoky flavor and a nice bark. I recommend their moist brisket. Their jalapeno sausage and homemade sides are so tasty too. Another words, It’s Really All Good. They rightfully deserve a Top 20 spot on any Texas BBQ list. Spicewood is also home to RO’s Outpost BBQ and Opie’s BBQ.
