Back in September, I was in the great state of Texas for a 9 day trip to promote and sign The Southern Tailgating Cookbook. While in the Lonestar State, I had another agenda. I was going to eat a lot of Texas style barbecue. When in North Carolina, I enjoy pulled pork, but when I am in Texas, I am there for the brisket! After a weekend in Austin, I decided to make a stop by Louie Mueller Barbecue in nearby Taylor, Texas. There were three factors that drew me to Louie Mueller. 1. It was about 40 minutes outside of Austin, so not to far away. 2. It is in the town of Taylor, and I thought it would be fun to visit a town named after me. 3. It was in the top 5 of Texas Monthly’s barbecue rankings. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here is a photographic look at my trip to Taylor, Texas.
