Love this place! @ Miller’s Smokehouse, 2017-02-25 17:46:31
Fantastic BBQ. The lean is reasonable with good chew but the moist just melts in your mouth. No sauce needed. Fat rendered very well with good bark and smoke ring even on the moist. Almost zero fat to pull off. I also had the BBQ chicken. It was just as good as my benchmark bill millers. Moist, juicy and flavorful with almost crunchy skin. Gotta try it. For sides I had Mac n cheese which was velveeta thick. Cole slaw was the star though. Super crunchy, sweet black pepper flavor in mayo base. Meal was definitely 5 out 5 stars. If I had to judge lean brisket on own it would be a 4 but I only got 1 slice of that.

Stopped in for lunch today. What a great place. My wife had the "El Gallo Picante" sandwich and she loved it. A perfect mix of chicken and sausage. I had the 2 meat plate with brisket, turkey with a side order of jalapeño cheese sausage and burnt ends. Everything was excellent - the brisket was tasty and super tender - ranks up there with Franklins and La Barbecue. The turkey had a great smoky flavor. The sausage was really good and the burnt ends were super tasty. The staff was very friendly. Miller's is a great stop

The moist brisket was awesome. Some of the best turkey I've ever had. The jalapeño cheese sausage was really good and I don't really like sausage that much. Service was great. The German chocolate pie was a perfect way to top it all off. @ Miller’s Smokehouse, 2016-02-20 00:57:01
Ribs and brisket were excellent today. Tender and full of flavor.

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.

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…
