Luling City Market is known for its family-owned, delicious smoked meat and savory sides that they’ve been serving up since 1981, and we think it’s time you get to know Kurt Craig, General Manager at Luling. His love for BBQ runs deep, but he’s got a few other passions to share with us – as well as the best thing to slather Luling City’s Bar-B-Que sauce on.

Read on and make some lunch or dinner plans while you’re at it.


Is there something on the menu at Luling that is your absolute favorite?

Briskets off the top side and the homemade beef sausage. 


What do you think sets Luling City Market apart from other barbecue joins in the city of Houston and surrounding areas?

We cook a little faster than most and everything is made in-house. 


What's the most creative thing you've ever put the Luling City Market BBQ sauce on?

Meatloaf, tacos, & sausage kolaches from The Kolache Shoppe. The Kolache Shoppe is currently selling these Luling City Market sausage and cheese kolaches on Thursdays-Saturdays through February 10th! 


If you had to go eat BBQ outside of Texas, where would you go?

Memphis, Tennessee! 

Tell us one thing about yourself people would be surprised to know! 

I ride in the MS150!
