Cooper’s Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que, New Braunfels, TX

14 of 16

At this New Braunfels replica of the Llano mothership, barbecue-obsessed Texans queue for mesquite-smoked ribs, chops, and brisket—plus, sausage, sirloin, and whole chicken. Sides like the obligatory baked beans and potato salad are decent, if beside the point. Here, it’s all about the meat. While the massive, corrugated steel–covered pits aren’t out in the open as at the original, you can still ogle the meat on display in the warming pits before making your choice. The big chop is rightfully legendary.
