Southside Market & BBQ: Elgin, TX
with Jerrod Janakus
BONUS STOP! When we were at Snow's BBQ we met a few new friends who told us Southside Market & Barbeque in Elgin, TX was a must because these guys are the kings of sausage! Being that it was only 9:30am, we decided that we'd make the stop. Lucky for us, Robert "Pony" Wells noticed us and offered us a behind the scenes tour. Texas has been so welcoming! The first thing we learned was that Southside is the oldest barbecue joint in Texas...they've been in business since 1882. That's a 133 years! Savory's got 11...hope we can make it as long as Southside.
The highlights were the jalapeño sausage, mutton (yes!), pork steaks and the "sausage slammer" - that's a half jalapeño stuffed with cheese, wrapped in made-in-house pan sausage and then wrapped in bacon. Cow meets pig meets pepper...how can you go wrong? #chasingbbq
