Austin360Eats: ABGB, Coolhaus sandwiches from @thesmokingho

Jimmy Ho is a local blogger who keeps tabs on barbecue restaurants across the state on his blog, the Smoking Ho (, but on Instagram, he goes far beyond what comes off the pit.

Over the Labor Day weekend, Ho posted two sandwich photos on different ends of the flavor rainbow on his hunger-inducing Instagram handle, @thesmokingho.

The first was a prosciutto and copa sandwich from ABGB, which is celebrating its one-year anniversary this week with a slew of events at the beer garden at 1305 W. Oltorf St. The marathoner followed it up two days later with an ice cream sandwich made with oatmeal raisin cookies and vanilla ice cream from Coolhaus, the food truck at 1905 S. Loop 360 (Capital of Texas Highway).
