Cooper's BBQ Junction, Texas
April 23 and 24, 2007.
We are staying in Junction at South Llano State Park. Water & 30-amps $15 plus $2 each for park entry fee. Located 5-miles south of Junction on the South Llano River. We like to stay here for the wildlife and birding.
We started our day in Kerrville when we connected the Saturn to our motorhome and headed west to Junction a journey of only 60-miles or so. Junction is one of our favorite Hill Country towns. There are so many things we like about Junction. We will share some of them with you.
If you keep going through Junction on the SR-481 loop you will intersect with I-10 on the west side of Junction at exit-456. Exit-456 in Junction is noted as the place to get your BBQ fix. Cooper's famous BBQ is located on the north west corner along with a huge truck stop. Actually, there are several truck stops but the one behind Cooper's is really big.
This is the cooking area for Cooper's BBQ. All is quiet in this area now.
I do not see anyone around the cooking area at this moment but meat is cooking in those huge boxes.

This is another picture of the cooking area at Cooper's.
A man sitting at the next table to us in Cooper's explained that these trucks were hauling sections of the tower for giant wind generators.
This is a picture of the base and the top section of the tower. The top section was 6-feet longer than the middle section. Each section had a special jig or fixture that attached it to those rolling platforms at the front and rear. The middle section is out of sight on the far side of that long piece.
If you are interested in more information on these huge rigs I created a page of pictures here:
