Welcome To The Upper Texas Smokehouse

***NOTICE FOR 2017***

Due to a significant change in our mission this year, we plan to open the Upper Texas Smokehouse only on a limited schedule. We will not be holding our farmer’s market each weekend but likely one weekend a month. We may open the smokehouse on Friday evenings. Stay tuned and keep checking back for updates.


After years of study and my travels into the backwoods of the deep south where I learned the old style methods of making “barbecue” from truly legendary pitmasters I am proud to offer what many are saying is the best pulled pork they have ever eaten.

From my own pit design to the hand cut red oak and hickory I have what we believe is the only true pit in operation anywhere in this part of the country.

Add to that my own rub made of 14 herbs and spices and my technique designed to give you true smokey goodness in every bite and I’m sure you will agree, you won’t find this fine a meal anywhere else.

We are also offering hand pattied fresh ground burgers slow cooked over real hardwood coals, not over gas, or on a griddle, or cooked over that wax and oil based kind of charcoal briquettes many others use.

We also have a menu filled with other goodies that I know you will like as you sit on our huge shaded deck and enjoy the beautiful views, the peace and serenity of this country setting and the breezes we get at nearly the highest point in the county.

So when you come to the market, bring your appetite. As they say, you can get almost anything you want in “Upper Texas”.
