Really good brisket and ribs. Very crowded at lunch, so come early.

Such good BBQ! If you drive through Belton, stop by. It is a must stop driving down I-35.

My first time to Miller's Smokehouse. The sausage is outstanding (4.8/5.0), Chicken (4.5/5.0), Ribs (4.3/5.0) and Brisket (4.3/5.0) are all very good and the desserts are out of this world - we had Hurricane cake, Southern Pecan Praline cake, apple cobbler and home made cookies.

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…
