When we went to Europe, Amber and I dropped our dogs off with her brother in Lubbock. When we came home, we landed in Austin Friday night, and on Saturday morning, we drove to Abilene to pick up our pups. Abilene was a good meeting point and was only about a couple of hours from Lubbock. I needed Texas barbecue stat especially after a disappointing meal in Rome. I have heard good things about Stillwater Barbeque, and it was the perfect situation to come on by. Owner/pitmaster Matt Proctor worked in the energy industry before turning to BBQ full time. Stillwater started in the trailer that was parked out back and took over a Quiznos once business took off.
