James Howard was a surveyor passing through Desoto. Bettie was a year-old orphan looking for a way to survive. But she said that if he would marry her and take her to Texas, she would bear and raise all his children. James took Bettie up on her offer. After crossing the gulf from Biloxi with their wagon in pieces on a boat, they landed in Indianola, Texas and reassembled their wagon.
Round Rock | Salt Lick BBQ
And when we pull up to the gravel parking lot, we can barely stop ourselves from sprinting to the building. The Salt Lick is very easily in the conversation of the best BBQ in the state, and any order here will be a good one. Just make sure you have the foundation of some brisket and some sausage on your plate, and the rest is up to you. Just get there soon.

Sandra Bullock was right. This is some of the best Texas barbeque I've eaten The meat was extremely good here. We got the pulled pork, sausage and brisket and all were great. The sides of beans, coleslaw and potato salad are just ok, nothing special.
