News is still coming in but Austin Police Dept have cracked a brisket thievery ring in town.
Three restaurants were allegedly participating, the most famous, in Roadfood terms, being Sam's Barbecue on e.12th st.
Sam's became famous in the late 80s when Stevie Ray Vaughan began championing their food in national music magazines.
The old bungalow has been a barbecue house since the 1940s with the Mays family running things since the 70s.
