Texas Highways Magazine has confirmed what we’ve all known for quite some time: Micklethwait Craft Meats, the East Austin trailer that recently ranked #5 in my best barbecue in Austin list) is opening a location in surging Smithville.  Michael Corcoran’s starry-eyed article about the promise of the much-filmed town also confirms the rumored location, the old Vasek Automotive building at 114 NE 2nd St. For much more on the burgeoning small town in Bastrop County, check out Corcoran’s story on Texas Highways Magazine’s website. We’ll have more details about opening date, hours and menu as they become available.
