Republic of Barbecue

A new book is set to release soon that should be near and dear to the hearts of any reader on this blog. The folks over at the Central Texas BBQ Association wrote their membership to say "This is to let you know that promotion for the Repulic of Texas Barbecue by Dr. Elizabeth Engelhardt and published by UT Press has begun. The story will be on the UT home page for the next two weeks. The book will be released in early October." This might be the first time I've heard from the CTBBQA since I joined a few months back, but it was sure welcome news. The story "Barbecue State of Mind" describes the book on the UT Press website.

No comments:


Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
