Kreuz Market will serve a choice of two meats and two sides with a drink, sliced dill pickles, onions, cheese, bread, and crackers (does not include prime rib) for $12. (Jay Janner AMERICAN-STATESMAN)

Every day of the year seems to be some trumped-up National Such-and-Such Food Stuff Day. The fake holidays are marketing gimmicks propped up by various organizations, but Texas Barbecue Week? We can get behind that.

Our friends over at TMBBQ (led by Daniel Vaughn) and Shiner Bock teamed for the third annual Texas Barbecue Week, and they got barbecue joints around the state to participate. Below are specials being run by Central Texas barbecue restaurants. (Head to this link for the statewide list, and check out for my Top 10 Austin barbecue spots from 2014.)
