Pit Downtown Barbecue, 2000 Central Texas Tour

ssweeney's Review of CCs Smokehouse


Main Fare:

  • Brisket is chunky, chewy, and sweet
  • The rib has a pork chop consistency... chewy & needs more time to fully render.  It has a sweet glaze on the finish, but that can't make up for the chewy rib.
  • Sausage has a course grind, and a nice blend of spice and heat.  Very good!
  • Pork chop/steak has good texture and flavor.  It is quite thin and a bit crisp around the edges... is this smoked or grilled?

Other Fare:

  • Boudin is gooey with a crisp casing.  Yum.
  • Potato salad is a mayo and mustard blend.  Good.
  • Slaw leaf has turned bitter and lost its crunch.  Seems like it would be good when fresh.
  • Twice baked potato casserole is hot and good.
  • Pecan cobbler is an interesting combo with good flavor, but is too dry.
  • Peach cobbler is gooey with canned peaches.  Bland.


  • Looks like brand new construction with a log cabin veneer.  This is a big place (If you build it, they will come?)
  • Large catering rig out back may have been how this business got started.
  • Our servers show an interest in the Barbecue tour concept.
