You'll all probably seen the Pace Picante Sauce commercials mocking "New - York - City" hot sauce makers, well I guess the New Yorkers have taken to making Texas BBQ. Hill Country Barbecue Market has been getting rave reviews and is a popular destination for celebrities and locals alike. They have a great website where you are greeted with a splash screen with road signs leading to Lockhart and Austin. That tells me these New Yorkers must know a thing or two about BBQ to mention Lockhart, Texas. They have a ton of great reviews on the site that talks about the Beef, Chicken and Pork offerings that Executive Chef Elizabeth Karmel dishes out to the hungry New York crowd. That's a dead giveaway that were talking about New York BBQ though, an executive chef at a BBQ joint, I doubt Smitty's Market or Black's Barbecue have an executive chef but I doubt that Pit Master does much for the resume in New York City. Teasing aside, it is great to know that if you're in the Big Apple and you're looking for some authentic Texas BBQ, you can find it at Hill Country Barbecue Market. Visit their great looking website at www.hillcountryny.com and be sure and stop by the next time you are in New York City.
