Louie Mueller on CBS Early Show

Set your DVR to record tomorrow's CBS Early Show. Wayne Mueller, owner and pitmaster of the famous Louie Mueller Barbecue will be there showing off his smoking skills. Here's the full press release:

"Instead of smoking meats this Saturday morning for an endless line of guests, Wayne Mueller, 3rd generation co-owner of Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor, Texas will be in New York, NY appearing on CBS’ “Early Show”, Saturday Edition demonstrating how to prepare and cook Texas beef brisket.

The live July 2nd show is themed “Taste of America” and Louie Mueller Barbecue will be there to represent Texas barbecue. The show will air 9am – 9am EDT and is taped delayed on the west coast. Check your local listing for exact show times in your area.

Mr. Mueller will briefly discuss 3 meats popular in Texas barbecue including an inside look into the preparation, rub, cooking, testing and carving of real Texas brisket.

Louie Mueller Barbecue is no stranger to national television or to acclaim. In May 2006, Louie Mueller’s was recognized by the James Beard Foundation with an “America’s Classic” Award. In 2007, Louie Mueller’s was featured in a pilot episode of The Food Network’s “Diner’s, Drive-Ins and Dives” hosted by Guy Fieri and in 2008 returned to The Food Network, appearing with Adam Gertler in “Will Work For Food”.

Louie Mueller Barbecue is a family owned restaurant established in 1949. Located near downtown Taylor, TX, the Mueller family has been a Texas tradition slow cooking meats for over six decades."

I'm anxious to see how Wayne takes to the camera, and I sure hope the producers don't make him rush that brisket. Will those beautiful beef ribs make it into the spotlight?

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.
