As it happens, Tony Bourdain just filmed an episode for "No Reservations" today at Franklin's BBQ.

That is most excellent.  I really enjoy Bourdain and his "work" which carries with it more than a whiff of the late, great Hunter S. Thompson.

    That's a damn good looking website

    Which one?

    Thanks.  I was wondering if you were commenting on my site, I did a massive re-work on it last year, and have been relatively happy with the results.
    The Franklin page is one of my most-viewed.  Especially around SXSW this year.

        My FAVORITE Central TX BBQ stop.  Been there 3 times so far and think about it almost every day.  Other great ones that are right there in Austin are J. Muellers (outdoor serving from a trailer) and Stiles Switch (new place very near J. Muellers that opened a few months ago).

          re:Stiles Switch being "near" John Mueller, it's near by Texas-standards, about ten miles north on Burnet Road, here's an article about the man Lance Kirkpatrick who's on the pit http://www.scrumptiousche...Stiles-Switch-Barbecue

            I was there during Texas/OU this past October.  Ordered 2 lbs of each of brisket, sausage and ribs.  Sausage had a good snap to the casing and was juicy.  Definitely not the commercial stuff.  Really good.  I thought the ribs were good not outstanding but pretty solid which is better than what you get from most joints.  The brisket, however, was on a whole different level.  That's some divine stuff there.

            I still say there's more than salt and pepper in the rub on the brisket.
            Actually, the sausage at Franklin IS the commercial stuff, it's made by Texas Sausage Company, here's a pic of the man who makes that sausage, it's damn fine but cannot be compared to the handmade version that John Mueller makes from scratch http://www.scrumptiousche...ay-September-20th-2010   sorry for the repeat, Sunday morning coming down.
