    Eater Austin ^ | 5/10/22 | Nadia Chaudhury and Erin Russell
    Barbecue is a way of life in Texas, there’s just no way around it.

Here is Eater’s updated definitive guide to the finest barbecue in Austin, including places with and without lines, outdoor picnic table seating and indoor table service, restaurants and food trucks, and all the briskets, ribs, and sausages a person could ever want.

    Last Father’s Day, I spent the morning watching the men of Millheim Harmonie Verein Hall baste and flip barbecue on large open pits. There were beef clods, pork shoulders, and whole mutton. That last one is something you don’t often see on barbecue joint menus in Texas, whole or not, but back in the days before barbecue restaurants it was nearly as ubiquitous on the pit as beef and pork

  • Surging Meat Prices Push Summer Grillers to Order Pizza Instead

    05/28/2022 12:38:48 PM PDT · by mylife · 96 replies
    Record-high meat prices are having a chilling effect on summer-grilling demand in the US With costs for ground beef and chicken breasts at all-time highs, consumers have few alternatives to switch to different proteins -- so some may skip them entirely. The US Memorial Day holiday on Monday is considered the unofficial opening of the outdoor grilling season, and the surging costs are pointing to a disappointing start. Price pain in meat comes after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine stalled crop exports in the Black Sea, pushing up the costs of animal feed. Even prices for propane used to power grills...

If there is no visible pile of wood or pit area, that's your first red flag "If you could see if they've got wood, or if you could...

    A long-standing Florida BBQ restaurant is closing its doors after the labor shortage left the business with just four workers.

Of the closure, McKinnon said, "After 35 amazing years, we have locked the doors on Bubbalou's Winter Park for the final...

    VIDEOIf you have never gone to a Korean barbecue before you MUST check it out. One big reason is that the dining experience is completely different from a regular barbecue. Why? Well, for one thing you are the cook. Yes, you cook your own food at a Korean barbecue as you can see in this video. Also the cuts of meat and flavors are very different to say nothing of the side orders. Somehow I don't think you will have seaweed or kimchi at a regular barbecue restaurant.If you have an Korean barbecue restaurants in your area, I highly recommend...
  • Trump's local influence: No food for 'RINOs' at Muskegon GOP BBQ

    Fox 17 Online ^ | 7/24/21 | Aaron Parseghian
    MUSKEGON, Mich. - The smell of BBQ food filled Kruse Park in Muskegon Saturday afternoon, but none of the food was for “RINOs,” according to signs posted at the local Republican party event. The term, an abbreviated form of “Republican In Name Only,” has been made popular by former President Donald Trump, who evokes it to attack members of his own party who are critical of him. Those literal signs are among other things showing the former president’s continuing influence on local Republicans who, at the Muskegon County GOP BBQ bash Saturday, echoed concerns that the 2020 election was in...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday it’s possible that Americans may be able to gather in larger groups on the Fourth of July — if the nation doesn’t pull back on public safety measures. “You know, that’s entirely conceivable and possible,” Fauci said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Fauci explained that while President Biden set a more “reasonable” Independence Day goal of small groups being able to gather, it doesn’t mean that larger celebrations are off the table. “What the president was saying is that we traditionally have, at the Fourth of July, the kind of barbecue in the backyard, the kind...

    Arlo Kinsey was working behind the carryout counter at RJ’s Bob-Be-Que Shack in Mission last week when a middle-aged man dressed in a red Make America Great Again hat — and no mask — walked through the door. “I asked him if he could wear a mask, since it’s what Gov. Kelly told us to do,” said Kinsey, 18, who was working shifts at the barbecue joint this summer before heading off to college. He had dealt with a handful of customers who refused to wear masks inside the restaurant despite the statewide mandate — but none like this, he...

    A self-proclaimed "vegan runner" from Berkeley, California received backlash on Saturday after asking neighbors to close their windows when cooking meat because the smells were 'overpowering and offensive.' The rant was posted to @BestNextDoor -- an account that houses neighborhood drama -- which showed the runner had requested nearby residents only barbeque vegetables because it's "always hard for me this time of year when the weather starts warming up." "Several nights a week I'm out running around dinnertime and when people have their windows open I can smell what they are cooking," the request said. "I've noticed a sharp uptick...
