Art's BBQ in Port O'Connor
Recently I took a trip to the South Texas coast with my dog not looking for anything other than waves. So when I drove into Port O'Connor and found trailer food (of all things) I was pleasantly surprised. I'll be honest. I drove past it and straight to the real estate office to get the scoop. They vouched for the brisket, which they said was hard to beat. Since I have dual citizenship in BBQ country, I know brisket. From Franklin's in Austin, to the Salt Lick in Driftwood, Perini's in Buffalo Gap to Joe Allen's in Abilene, I've had good brisket.
I raised a suspicious eyebrow and drove back down the street to give it a go. Afterall, when you're at the coast, you tend to find yourself in the mood for shrimp, crab, snapper or anything edible under the sea. But not BBQ. Anyhow, Levi stayed in the backseat with the windows rolled down as I approached the impressive BBQ trailer.
