Update: This joint is CLOSED.
2012: Food trucks are all the rage these days, and I usually have high hopes for roadside barbecue stands. Standing in a damp parking area on the corner of two state highways in San Augustine, I was wishing for the best. There hadn't been much in this part of East Texas to get excited about, but Cowboy Chuck Wagon looked like it might ease my pain. Not so much.
Luckily there was a decent link of steamed boudin (there wasn't a hint of smoke) and a nice mashed potato salad, because the rest was pretty awful. Chewy strips of undercooked beef may not have even been brisket. Several slices of bright red hot links again had no smoke and the muddy flavor of the gamey filling made us all stop eating after just a slice. This food truck needs some work.
