Schmidt Family Barbecue – New BBQ Joint – Bee Cave, Texas

When I visited Smitty’s Market in Lockhart, Texas in November John Fullilove had indicated that something was in the works for a joint effort between ‘feuding’ family members from both Smitty’s Market and Kreuz Market. He didn’t say where, but it appears, per Addie Broyles from the Austin American Statesman that the new joint is going to be located in Bee Cave.

It’s going to be called Schmidt Family Barbecue and they already have a static website HERE

Per Addie’s article, “Although most of the meats — brisket, shoulder clod, prime rib, smoked turkey, pork chops — will be prepared just like those at the Lockhart restaurants, Chad Franks says that they’ll buy sausage from both Kreuz and Smitty’s to serve at Schmidt Family Barbecue. The family is adding a bar so customers can order beer and wine to go with their barbecue, but don’t bother asking for a fork. The restaurant will be a spoons-only establishment, just like the motherships in Lockhart.”

Additionally, “They finally secured property across from Falconhead West subdivision, in a part of Central Texas that is booming with construction. They’ll break ground on their building, which is like a smaller version of the Kreuz layout, Chad Franks says, in coming months, but one major addition is a playground that will surely draw plenty of families with kids. Keith Schmidt says they hope to open in the first half of next year, before the “summer barbecue crowds” start coming in.”

Should be an interesting addition to the Austin BBQ scene. What are your thoughts?
