Micklethwait Craft Meats opening location in Smithville this summer

Micklethwait Craft Meats, the East Austin trailer that recently ranked #5 in my best barbecue in Austin list), took to Facebook yesterday to tease its forthcoming Smithville location. The photo is of the old Vasek Automotive building at 114 NE 2nd St. in the burgeoning town in Bastrop County. The photo says it will open this summer.

Texas Highways Magazine published a starry-eyed story from Michael Corcoran last year documenting all of the growth in the much-filmed town. We’ll have more details about opening date, hours and menu as they become available.

The original Micklethwait Craft Meats on Rosewood Avenue is closed until March 27, as they recover from SXSW and feed folks at the World Golf Championships at Austin Country Club.


Correction: This blog has been updated to reflect the publication date of Texas Highways Magazine’s story.
