BBQ in the News

It's only been a week since the last update about BBQ in the news, but the stories just keep coming.

Man Up Texas BBQ filled us in on Anthony Bourdain's trip to an old school bus that is Old School BBQ & Grill in Austin. You can read more about them on Austin360.

Mayor Tom Leppert offers his pitch for LeBron James to come to Dallas. The BBQ Snob appreciates that his #1 reason to come to Dallas involves Texas BBQ. Be sure to invite me along.

Ruthie Johnson who is part of the Houston Chowhounds offers her recap of the recent BBQ Smackdown in Houston.

Also in Houston, Greg Morago writes about a Texas BBQ roadtrip in the Houston Chronicle. Mouthwatering.

On a sad note, the Southern Foodways Alliance announces the death of Luke Zimmerman who was one of the owners of Ruby's BBQ in Austin. He will be missed.

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.
