Our Plans for 2008

It’s been a while since I posted last. I’ve enjoyed plenty of barbecue this in the Fall, learning how to make a great brisket… And, then learning to make a really awful brisket. (t’s a bitch when you smoke a $25 piece of meat for 11 hours, only to find out that one of my mop ingredients must have gone bad before using it. It sucked and we ended up drinking more beer & eating cole slaw and other sides. OK, lesson learned. I’ll buy all new mop ingredients each time I throw a piece of meat on the pit!) I also spent most every waking hour focused on launching our Austin TX Internet content marketing company – Forest For The Trees. So, time has been limited for writing about barbecue. But, I’m finally back around & I’ll be posting the brisket pics & details in the coming week.

I’m going to continue my journey of figuring out this whole “How To Make Great Texas Barbecue” this year. But, I’m also going to include some insight, video & interviews with experts as well. I figured that there is no better way to learn than to ‘bribe’ local restaurant owners and pitmasters into letting us spend a little time with them around their pits & in their kitchens. I’ll let you know how that plan goes. If you have any suggested Central Texas BBQ joints you want me to start with, please post them here in a comment.
