The annual Texas Monthly BBQ festival sees the top bbq joints from around Texas converge upon Austin for a smokey extravaganza. Following some serious flooding, the Barbecue Gods truly smiled upon the event, with blue skies, sunshine and meat comas for all. Thank you to Daniel Vaughn for having me along! Here’s the event in pics:
