Running into the BBQ Snob is a good sign

  Daniel Vaughn, aka: The BBQ Snob, at Snow’s BBQ in Lexington. (Photo ©Chris Wilkins/Texas BBQ Posse) Running into your “barbecue friends” out in the wild is really a pleasant surprise. Twice this year I’ve run into Daniel Vaughn, a barbecue blogger and author who’s tireless pursuit of great smoked meat has benefitted us all. I’m never surprised to run into Daniel at a restaurant, because if I see him, I know I’m in for some good barbecue. I always look over my shoulder for Daniel when I eat at a new place, like Fargo’s new location in Bryan. I…

If we’re the posse, he’s the sheriff

The tough part about always being the guy behind the camera is that you’re never* in the photo. Chris Wilkins, the driving force behind the Texas BBQ Posse, is a professional photographer. So are a lot of posse members. But Chris is the guy who’s always ready with his lenses and flash when we pull up to a new joint. He’s the guy who’s always walking in with at least two cameras around his neck. He’s the guy who’s always in perfect position to record the moment when a pitmaster agrees to take us around back and show us where…

Lonnie Ray’s BBQ: Texas smoke in the heartland of Missouri

I got a chance to try some “Texas-style” BBQ on a trip last week to Columbia, Missouri. I’m alway skeptical when I hear those words and I’m not in Texas. The meat is usually cooked on a gas burner and that ain’t Texas-style in my book……. Longtime friend Jim Curley, a photojournalist in Columbia, drove us north 21 miles to Harrisburg, population 184, home of Lonnie Ray’s BBQ. Mike Whiteley, owner and pit boss, has been cooking most of his life and opened Lonnie Ray’s seven years ago. Jim had heard about the Gee Wilikers sandwich, a wholly original choice…

Lady Gaga, Texas BBQ and Aaron Franklin

If you can work Lady Gaga into a conversation about Texas barbecue, then it’s probably going to be a pretty good conversation. That was true Thursday morning when I stopped by Aaron Franklin’s new place in Austin on my way back to Dallas. It was just after 9 a.m., still about two hours until he opened for business, so Franklin had a few minutes to show me around. “What are you doing in town?” he asked. I explained that I had gone to the Lady Gaga concert the night before at the Erwin Center. (Terrific show, btw.) One of her…

Texas BBQ wins another convert

Before Dan Sweet made his recent pilgrimage to the Central Texas barbecue holy land, he called the Posse. The Oregon resident, who works in corporate public relations, said he had won a Texas tourism essay contest and that one of the research resources he had used was this blog. Thanks, Dan. It’s always nice to get a nod. Anyway, for his essay about starting the church of Texas barbecue, Dan and his wife, Cheryl, won a five-day trip to Austin and the Central Texas barbecue trail. Last week, they went to Lockhart, Taylor and other famous barbecue towns and ate…
