Post Oak-Smoked Brisket

+ Free Shipping

Surrounded by a crimson smoke ring and a generous layer of crusty bark that clings to a generous border of fat, this brisket is considered to be one of the best in Austin. often lauded as some of the best to be had in Austin’s crowded barbecue scene. Each brisket is smoked for 10-14 hours and is covered in a flavorful rub made of black pepper, celery seed, onion powder, garlic, chili flake, chili powder, mustard powder, coriander, and mace.

Founded in 2012 by former baker turned pitmaster Tom Micklethwait (the “th” is silent), Micklethwait Craft Meats serves oak-fired barbecue out of a tiny vintage trailer in East Austin. What sets them apart is their commitment to scratch-making every element of their menu – seriously, even the mayo in the potato salad is homemade. The love, care, and hard work that goes into the entire menu are what have earned Micklethwait its place on Texas Monthly’s list of the “Ten Best BBQ Joints in Texas.”

Scalloped potatoes were excellent and it was easy to find reheating instructions on your website. Time and temp worked as advertised.
