I'm back from TEXAS!

Jeez, I'm gone for a couple weeks and all he!! breaks lose! LOL.... you guys have been naughty! Took me awhile to catch up, but I'm going to try posting pics today.

I'm not happy about being back in COLD nj, but I had an amazing trip to TX, as I always do. The food was amazing, the weather was a little on the chilly side for texas, they said we brought it with us. I did get to where shorts once! I'm hoping to have some property there in the next year or so. Land prices have skyrocketed and I want to get some before the yuppies take over and it gets worse!

Thanks to Dr. BBQ's Road Trip book, we decided on Blacks BBQ in Lockhart. We tried a little bit of everything. The brisket was awesome, the pork loin was great, but a tad dry for me. The chicken was excellent and the garlic sausage... although a little mealy like Dr. BBQ had said, still had a wonderful flavor.
This isn't a real pretty pic of their bbq, but it was tasty!

We also went to TXLC, Texas Land and Cattle. Definately one of my favorite steak places when visiting texas. We had the fried pickles, a first for me! and the Smoked Sirloin which is always amazing!

Gotta get back to my own cooking now that I'm back! I definitely want to try the smoked sirloin and the fried pickles. They had a white BBQ sauce that was out of this world, anyone got a recipe for that???

Crossing my fingers and hoping these pictures post!

Want to be back in Texas,

    That was my last post with multiple pics. Here are some basic guidelines for how I did it:

    1. Pics were resized to 800X600 and uploaded to Photobucket.
    2. The "IMG code" was used inline with the text.

    So, your post should look like this:

    text
    text
    text
    img code link
    text
    text
    img code link
    text
    text

    etc.

    Hope this helps!

    I used the IMG button up to the right, clicked once and [ img size=150 ] pops up. I used the photobucket IMG tag, but had to take out the initial and end img that photobucket adds to it, then I clicked on the IMG button at the top right again, which has an * next to it to show that you have not completed the image yet. That's all. You can put them anywhere in the text of your message.

    I tried to select an image at the bottom also to add another picture but an error came up saying that I can only have alphanumeric mumbo jumbo in my file name. Must of not liked the space in the filename. I'll try that again now though.

    Hope that helps, and thanks :)

    Okay, it's all starting to soak in...

    When you posted, "The "IMG code" was used inline with the text." did you click on the Img box, paste your photo and click on the Img box again? Or did you simply paste the IMG code without clicking the box?

    Thank you again for your patience and help!

    I click the IMG code from Photobucket, which will copy the link to the clipboard, then I paste it in the "Message" section of the post.

    I don't attach pictures from the boxes at the bottom.
