Satisfying both the needs of Pflugerville residents and Austinites on their way to Ikea is Brotherton’s Black Iron Barbecue, a strip mall barbecue joint that’s way bigger than its unassuming exterior would lead you to believe. It’s a bit minimalist inside, without a lot of the almost-kitschy character of old school barbecue joints, which just means they’re focused on good meat. The brisket and sausage here are worth a short detour (wherever you’re headed), but the sandwiches are worth a trip of their own. Grab the reuben that’s made with house-smoked pastrami, the Texas bánh mì to try Brotherton’s smoky (and brisket-filled) take on a classic, or get the loaded grilled cheese and see just how well smoked meats and cheese pair together.
