Snow's BBQ - Lexington, TX

First it was the best Barbecue in Texas voted by Texas Monthly, and now TLC just voted it the "Best Food EVER!" This little hidden gem about an hr outside of Austin is Snow's BBQ. They are located in Lexington, TX pop. 1,178. and these awards ain't no joke! You can take the big bbq joints and toss them aside as there is no comparison to the delicious food that comes out of this small little building just off the main street in Lexington. Not sure what the secret it but I bet money it is the dedication and passion these folks put in to every piece of meet they smoke up. They don't worry about quantity but rather quality. Owner Kerry Bexley and Pit Master Ms Tootsie fire up the giant pit you see below every Saturday morning at 3AM and then open the doors to the mouth watering patrons waiting in line at 8AM. They then promptly close the doors as soon as the food runs out. So if you were looking for a late BBQ lunch you can forget about Snows because with the line wrapped down the porch at 8AM the food is running on scraps by 11:30 and out by 12:00 in most cases. My suggestion is to show up early and order some brisket for breakfast and a slab of brisket to go, because it is just impossible to not taste this BBQ after waiting in line and seeing and smelling the plates that come out before you. For the brisket to go they will wrap it up for you uncut and when you arrive home and unwrapped the foil and slice it up it will still taste just as good as if it just came off the pit. This is one place you have to try and go if you are in and around the Lexington area. the photo below is just part of the huge pit built for snows. The photo is a 3 shot HDR converted to black and white with selective coloring added into the lettering. Next time I will try to provide a picture of the food!


  1. I like the use of selective color on this one. And I agree that Snow's is first-rate! We made a run out there last summer and managed to score some brisket before they ran out. It was well worth the trip.


I would love to hear your thoughts on my photos, like it, hate it, or anything at all you would like to add.
