Double Trouble, recently featured on Austin’s Thrillist, distinguishes itself from predictably terrestrial food trucks by operating on both land and water. A hearty menu includes barbecue staples, which, like most laws of grammar, are always created on the spot from scratch. Meaty options include a smoked-pulled-pork sandwich ($5), a smoked-brisket sandwich ($5), or a smoked-jalapeño-sausage wrap ($4.50). Meat plates ($7.50), served with two sides such as coleslaw or baked beans, lure smoky poultry flavor onto taste buds. Double Trouble operates as a stationary South Congress meat haven on workdays, and its buoyant boat counterpart drops anchor in Lake Austin’s party cove on the weekends, doling out barbecued bounty to hunger passersby and locally beloved sea monsters.
Double Trouble BBQ
Double Trouble BBQ hands out smoked meats and barbecue treats from the deck of an amphibious foodmobile, operating with equal ease on land and in Lake Austin. Sandwiches teem with smoked brisket and pulled pork or chicken, and wraps can swathe hot jalapeño sausages in coleslaw as crisp and cool as a freshly ironed iceberg. A host of sides, such as cornbread, green-bean casserole, and blueberry cobbler, pepper catered meals with sweet and savory flavors. Double Trouble sticks to terra firma while sating weekday appetites and slips into the lake’s Party Cove on weekends, attracting swimmers, boaters, and Nessie’s cousin, Bessie.
In addition to smoked meats by the pound, the amphibious eatery offers barbecue classics from its two smokersLisa Siva, Tribeza, 1/2/12
