An eat fest indeed, sroach! :lol: Well, we hit our last restaurant of our stay in Austin tonight. My wife's awesome aunt and uncle treated us to the Austin Land and Cattle Company.

Image

AMAZING steaks were consumed by all! :shock: We started with an appetizer of Buffalo Lamb Chops, which are "lollipop lamb chops deep fried and tossed in franks red hot sauce with jalapeno blue cheese."

Image

The lamb chops were insanely delicious. Next, I had a Ribeye Steak with a Maker's Mark Bourbon Sauce. Even more insanely delicious! Had some garlic mashed potatoes, julienned carrots and sautéed spinach on the side.

I'm going to have to try and recreate that sauce. It was so so good! My wife, her aunt and uncle all got the Gorgonzola Butter to go on top of their ribeyes. That was really good too. It has been a wonderful and delicious trip. :)

You know that's about what I used to stock for the summer when I had a stick-burner. :lol: :twisted: :lol: :twisted:

What an awesome trip... That is the quintessential barbecue tour. Hope I get that lucky one day.

That was a great end to the trip, Dyal! How would you describe the flavor of the bourbon sauce?

Glad you enjoyed it. Black's can be hit or miss on their brisket, I've had it both. Last time it was probably the best I've ever had.

Question...when you were in LaGrange, did you happen to see the big gorilla statue in somebody's yard by the side of the road? Easily 6 foot tall. Been there forever and they change its outfits for different seasons/events. Very random.

Brad, the sauce had a deep, rich and creamy flavor with a nice kick from the bourbon. Can't really describe it.

Griffin, yup, I saw that. :lol: It was right down the street from the Country Club. We had the rehearsal dinner there and the groom and I played golf there Saturday morning. I was wondering what the big gorilla was all about.

What was it dressed up as? I've seen it as a football player, Santa, a pilgrim and others I forget. No idea why they do it, but we always make sure to look for it.

He wasn't dressed up when I saw him. Just a big porcelain looking gorilla sitting up on a hill in someone's yard.
