If you think you know a thing or two about being hot, go stand next to this fire on a steamy August afternoon. You’re welcome. #myfavetexas #Repost from @jaimiemuehlhausen This is the pit at Smitty’s in Lockhart, TX. The fire has been going for over 100 years. We literally got the last rack of ribs they had after driving 40 minutes to get there. #bbq #smittys #lockhart #ribs (at Texas Monthly Magazine)

Gentle followers, today is deadline Wednesday, and we’re working hard on the September issue so you will be extra stoked on it when it hits your hands. In honor of today, we’ll be posting stuff we wish we had: first up, a kolache or ten would be nice. #Repost from @jessicadenise44 My little Texas transplants @cassandranowell and @cfabritz finally get to try the famous Czech Stop! From LA and Kentucky to West, Texas! 👏👏 (at Texas Monthly)

And now, a little historical #myfavetexas jam. #Repost from @myetx Shelby County’s 1885 Courthouse has 12 chimneys. Architect, J. J. E. Gibson of Ireland, designed this two-story brick courthouse to look like the castles he had seen while growing up in his native country. Gibson also made the two million-plus bricks used to construct the courthouse, and the mortar was made from sand hauled by oxcarts from Louisiana. The Shelby County Courthouse is now the only remaining Irish castle style courthouse in the U.S. (at Texas Monthly Magazine)
