I constantly make lists for a variety of reasons, but I don’t believe in making lists of things that must be done before you die. There isn’t enough flexibility in that kind of list, you’ll miss the roses looking for the tulips. But if I had a list of places to go before I died, I would consider adding Lockhart, Texas. Apparently they have the best bbq in America. That seems like it would be worth the 1,332 mile trip.

For now I’ll settle for Phil’s BBQ, which is definetly worth the stop if you find yourself in San Diego.
