I ended up going with the Duck Tinga Chalupas... Holy Mother of Moses was this good!

These had a very good rich and smoky flavor... the little cup of sauce (whatever it was) complimented them perfectly...

Here are some more pictures of the Alamo...

We are now home, but as you can tell, we had a wonderful trip. :) Can't wait for my trip to Austin coming up soon.... Oh yeah, I almost forgot....I ended up picking up some Texas-made Sucklebuster's Hog Waller and Hoochie Mama at the airport. Can't wait to try those rubs out soon... :wink:

When you go to Austin try to extend your trip a few extra days and do a little tour of Hill Country barbecue. Start northeast of Austin in Taylor and Elgin, work your way down thru Luling & Lockhart, and then head west toward Kerrville and Fredricksburg. You will find a lot, and many you know of, that you will like.
Wife's youngest brother's house is on top of the first decent "pull" into Hill Country in Fischers. Deck faces west and the view is fantastic, especially at sunset.
Friend's daughter is a school teacher in San Antonio. She goes frequently to visit and almost always brings back an interesting sauce or rub for me. Last trip, a couple weeks ago, she brought back a bottle of Jimmy O's Texas Peach & Pepper Marinade for me. Haven't used any yet but I'm seeing this being excellent on pork or chicken.
Hill Country is my favorite barbecue region. Like to go late March - mid April when the bluebonnets are in full bloom. Not going to make it this year but hoping for at least a long weekend next year.
