Completed in 1888, the statehouse in Austin — modeled on the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. — is the largest of its kind in the U.S., with some 360,000 square feet of floor space. This enameled tree ornament with 24-karat detailing commemorates the Capitol and marks the 25th year that an ornament has been issued.

BBQ Brisket from Kreuz Market

$19.50/lb. from Kreuz Market

Texans have strong opinions in general and even stronger opinions about the best barbecue in the state. While we can’t say which BBQ joint is the best, our Texas-based editor — who’s eaten his way around the state — assures us that the brisket from Kreuz Market in Lockhart is one of Texas’ finest. They ship nationwide and sell pork, turkey, and sausage, as well as their signature oak-smoked brisket.
