We're helping my Mom move from Conn. back to Texas. We only have room for 1-50 quart Igglo. What should I bring back in the ice chest? I've been racking my tiny brain to think of things I can't get here in the wasteland. So far I've come up with:

At least 10 pounds of Earls Hot links
10 LBS of Good Chorizo
At least a case of Shiner ( no ice chest room needed)
some Grape Nehi
some Big Red
probablly some packer briskets, we'll be there right before Labor Day so the prices should be good.

Any thing else you guys can think of?

I would definitely bring back some Red Hot Links. You can’t get these anywhere but Texas. I like Chorizo as well, but you can find these anywhere.
Have Fun. :)

See Dark you need to put a glossary here, because some of Nothern Boys have no idea what you're talking about.
Big Red and Shiners? :? That's chewing gum and fishing bait to me man!
I can't tell you what to bring back, but I'd love to know whats worth the trip and why.

Shiners-Beer made by one of the oldest brewery's in the USA very tasty Made in central Texas since the middle 1800's almost as much a legend as the Chicken Ranch.

Chicken Ranch used to be outside of La Grange, Texas was the oldest operating brothel in the country legal or illegal. It was a rite of passage for most teenage boys in the state of Texas.

Big Red-You were close on this one Grand. Big Red is "sodie pop" in every sense of the word. Tastes like bubble gum in a bottle.

Grand Scale, Shiner Bock is similar in quality to a "lager". And of course by lager, i mean Yuengling.

Maybe if DarkRubi could find it in his heart to pick up Yuengling's for me on the way through Pennsylvania, drop it off in Ohio, and drop off another trailer full of Shiner on the way back, we could make it worth his while.

I've got a few cases of Yuengling coming over for my Penn St. grad brother's wedding. As an Ohio St. grad, it always makes for some fun come football season, although I grew up a Nittany Lions fan.

***NOTE TO ANY YUENGLING FAMILIY READING THIS SITE***
You've expanded your product to 8 states. Would it be so freakin' hard to sell it in the state next door?

Tony I'm with ya man. I'm a lager boy. The first beer I ever drank was a Premium, but now I'm fixed on the Lager.
Shiner may be old, but there's only one Oldest, and that is Yuengling!

A-Men. I spent four years out East (Philly and D.C.), and Yuengling is the BEST beer, bar-none. Can't they send a couple of semis west on I-70? Makes no sense.

Also, from Texas, nothing finer then some rattlesnake. I mean, you can get most other stuff anywhere, but fresh rattler, only in the SW.

Dark, where in Texas are you headed? If you're going any where near Houston, make Herbert's Cajun Meat Market you A#1 Stop. Everything that they have is fantastic. A couple of my favorites are:

Pork Stuffed Pork Chops
Stuffed boneless chickens
Turduckens
Jalepeno stuffed quail
Crawfish pies.

No kidding, this place is worth a 2000 mile drive. I might just drive back for Herberts alone.

Where in Houston are they located? I've never heard of them. But then again I've been away from there for four years. Actually, our trip starts from Virginia Beach, to Gales Ferry CN, to Houston, and back to VA beach.

DarkRubiTJ,
Have you eaten at Fogo De Chao in Huston?
It’s quit an experience. They serve you 17 different cuts of meat that have been cooked on a spit over wood fire. It’s all you can eat, and trust me you will eat a lot.
Here is their web site if you need the info: http://www.fogodechao.com/flash_index.php

They weren't there when I left Houston. I know right where it is. It's on the Westheimer gerbil trail. I used to work about a mile from there.

I've lived in Maryland most of my life, except for 6 years in Florida. I never found Yuengling's until after I moved back and started living in St. Mary's county. Since then Yuengling's Original Lager is the only beer I buy for home. Down here, you can even get it on tap at some local bars and restaurents. I don't want them to expand their delivery area too much, because I remember how badly Coors went downhill when they grew from a regional to a national supplier. It was special, now it's just another mass market beer that tastes pretty much like all the others sorta "Budmilloors" beer. I guess you guys outside the region will have to move back or suffer.

Hebert's has two locations. The origianl one is on Richmond, just inside the 610 loop. There's a Lulling Barbeque joint within sight.

The other is way out on I-10 West, outside the beltway. I think it's on Dairy-Ashford, but my memory is getting foggy.

Heberts is a must! Don't forget to tell us how it turns out.

I also agree about Fogo De Chao. I LOVE that place, but it's $40 per person. The food is work the money, but just be prepared and the sticker price won't bruise as much.

Boys Boys Boys.. if you truly want the best beer in the world you will have to make a trip to the Blue Nose Province... Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale is by far the worlds greatest."Its that star up in the sky, that moutain peak iup high, baby its the worlds greatest"

Since 1820, the once Mayor of Halifax, Alexander Keith has been brewing it right... oh man this stuff is goood.. If you can find the Alexander KEiths commercials on the internet somewhere I highly suggest watching them... the ones with the scottish man in the pub are histarical

Your beers have nothing on Shaefer, after all- it is the ONE beer to have when you're having more than one. And I seldom stop at one :o AND it is America's oldest lager- says so right there on them cans.

Double cheers
