Another great plate of turkey and brisket. Millers has become a weekly stop.

Wholly Barbecue Batman! This stuff is world class. It is all the little things like the green beans and buttered potatoes that set the stage for the the fun. I am NOT a turkey guy but, man - best ever. Come and do a "tasting" with the 1/4' servings so two folks can try it all. The rub is a great base that moves through all the dishes. Lots of attention to detail made out off hours stop memorable. Don't pass this place up if you have any reason to be in the area. The staff is very nice too.

Had the brisket and turkey both were exceptional. Always great food when I eat here. Sides are all excellent.

Brisket is very good. Tremendous smoke flavor with good bark. Jalapeño and cheese sausage is also very good.

Very good brisket and hot sausage. I'll come back to try the rest of the menu. Very good sides too. Worth the trip

Sliced brisket plate and sausage w beans and slaw. So glad I stopped in. Brisket had a real nice char and sausage had the right snap. I'll have to come back and try the ribs! If you are going for dinner during the week go early, they close at 7.

If Miller’s were in Austin, it might have started in a food truck. Instead, Dirk Miller began cooking in the front room of his meat-processing and taxidermy business, which opened in 2006. First came sausage wraps and pulled pork in 2008; he started “throwing briskets” on the smoker a year later. Good move, as his brisket is now one of the best in the state, with great flavor, nice bark, and juicy, melty, beautifully rendered…

Dirk Miller knows his way around meat. He’s a deer processor, taxidermist, sausage maker and a master at the barbecue pit. Hidden a couple blocks down a side street in Belton you’ll find his small but expanding storefront. On the way there it’s hard to ignore the billboards and prominent location of nearby Schoepf’s right on Central Avenue, but the few extra blocks are painless. It started with a single smoker and a tiny dining…
