    Wahoo! Brisket won. I’m pumped! If you’re looking for tips, The Complete Package uses post oak hardwood lump charcoal for smoking meats. It gives everything a heavenly smoked flavor. We buy it as HEB. And if you need inspiration, I would encourage you to visit The Salt Lick BBQ out in Driftwood (southwest of Austin). I know it’s farther out, but it is SO MUCH BETTER than the smaller branches in town. It’s my favorite restaurant brisket. As for Japanese, I’d love to see you tackle a sweet rice dessert and sushi (except the raw stuff since you’re pregnant). Hey…maybe that’s your angle. Sushi for expectant mothers!

      Hi Jeanne! Yep — and brisket won pretty much by a landslide. Good to know about The Complete Package — thanks! We made it out to the Salt Lick in Round Rock but still really want to go the southern one. It’s on our list of definite to-do’s. A sweet rice dessert, eh? Very interesting. Haha: sushi for expectant mothers — love it! :)

    Happiest of new years to you Lacey! also…my vegan diet is over – I lost the weight I wanted to take off – and I’m now easing into a more refined vegetarian diet with the occasional meal of meat. I do love me some brisket, and if I recall correctly, I voted for The Brisket!!!

      Happy New Year, Miss Becky! Congrats on losing the weight and following through with your diet — that is awesome.
