Here's the lede page from our Heart of Texas BBQ Tour story in Sunday's Dallas Morning News Travel section.

This was the Posse's 14th barbecue tour since we started following the smoke in November 2009. The Heart of Texas BBQ Tour covered 318 miles over ten hours on a recent Friday.

Chick here to see the online package from the tour on, including Gary Jacobson's story, a slideshow featuring our four tour stops and a video by original Posse member David Guzman.
