A Posse rule of thumb: The cooler the sign, the better the barbecue. Nine times out of ten this has proved true.

BBQ Signs of our Times is back once again,with some memorable signs from our last trip to the Hill Country and points in between. This is our seventh blog post on classic BBQ signs. You can use the search box in the upper right of the Posse blog homepage if you’d like to see some other sign posts, just search “BBQ Signs of Our TImes”.

If you happen to see a cool sign while you’re out on the Texas BBQ Trail, please snap a photo and keep us in mind. If you’re a fan of our Texas BBQ Posse Facebook page, you can upload a photo for us to include on a future BBQ signs blog post.

A true art form.

I hope you went into the Smoke Shack in Hamilton. It's 1960s a time capsule inside… and even though the brisket is what I call "rancher's barbecue" (a well-cooked grey color like my grand-dad did it), it's the ONLY bbq joint I know of where the owner/pitmaster raises his own cattle. Really great sauce, too (but you'll need it).

Of course, it may have changed in the few years since I last stopped there.
