Like many great barbecue joints in Central Texas, you have to drive a little bit outside of Austin to reach them. Cooper’s, in Llano, is worth the drive. The proteins are presented directly on the enormous pit smokers for diners; you choose what looks good, they weigh it, you sit down and eat it. Hot links are a must.
