Lockhart Smokehouse, the Central Texas-style barbecue joint launched by a step-granddaughter of longtime Kreuz Market owner Edgar Schmidt, was easily 2011's most eagerly anticipated restaurant opening. Lockhart's fatty brisket, remarkably tender and flavorful, proves the excitement was warranted. While the smokehouse hasn't yet mastered ribs or chicken, there's perhaps no better place to Dallas to observe the "no sauce, no forks" dictum and attack smoked beef bare-handed. Consistent with Texas tradition, the array of accompaniments includes pickles, raw onions, jalapeños and cheddar cheese. There's Shiner Bock at the bar.
