Grilling is a sport. Barbecuing is an art — at least in Texas.
Besides being a great place to call home, the mild climate in Austin makes it easy to do both all year long.
There are plenty of places to discover world class barbecue in the Lake Travis area. You just might find it around the corner at the neighbors house or in your own backyard.
Whether you’re keeping it simple by grilling up some burgers with friends or getting serious by dedicating your day to the art of smoking a brisket, having the right tools for the job is key.
When it’s game day and you’re ready to start shopping for your next grill, or you just need to grab some charcoal, head on over to see the folks at BBQ Outfitters. These guys have been in the business since 1998. They know a thing a two about using fire and smoke to cook a meal.
BBQ Outfitters has everything you need for daily grilling or getting set up with equipment to become the next barbecue champion of Lake Travis.
If you love grilling but don’t want to deal with charcoal, then gas is the way to go. There’s something to be said about the ease of firing up the grill with the turn of a dial.
You’ll find everything from the classic Weber to top of the line Alfresco units with refrigerated carts.
Charcoal Grills & Smokers
Lets face it, there is no substitute for grilling with charcoal. And if you’re going to smoke ribs, chicken, or brisket, then you need the right tool for the job. Check out BBQ Outfitters selection of smokers and Big Green Eggs — a combination grill, oven, and smoker. You might decide to never cook with gas again after trying one of these!
Having a grill on a stand used to be the extent of an outdoor kitchen. Nowadays, it’s all about having an outdoor living area loaded with everything including refrigerators, ice makers, fire pits, flat-panel TV’s, furniture, and a kitchen sink.
