AUS: The Salt Lick

I made a beeline for the Salt Lick stand as soon as I got off the plane. I needed lunch and knew that I wouldn't have time to visit the mother location during my short stay in Austin so the airport made perfect sense.

My camera failed me so I don't have a photo of my plate, unfortunately. I ordered a two-meat platter with brisket (of course) and sausage. This was my first time to try their sausage, which was very rich and with great chewy texture. The brisket was perfectly tender with a red smoke ring that had been laid down with beautiful precision. Their cole slaw is of the vinegar variety, my preference, and is amazingly spare with little more than cabbage. I find the simple cole slaw to be a good complement to their perfect BBQ.
