Lady Bird Johnson's Last Meal (2008)

Hill Country

Born Claudia Alta Taylor in Karnack, Texas, the long-lived former first lady was a beloved fixture in Austin, where she died earlier this year. Since we respect her and have no idea what she liked to eat, we're taking her to Hill Country, where the barbecue mimics that of Kreuz Market in Lockhart, Texas. There, she'll enjoy a familiar meal of pork ribs, fatty beef brisket, and especially "clod"—the smoked beef shoulder that's the signature meat of Kreuz, unavailable anywhere else in Gotham. What's a "lady bird," you ask? A very old-fashioned Texas expression for a ladybug.
