We can’t keep track of all the national media crews that have descended on John Mueller Barbecue down in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood in South Austin recently.
Bourdain, Zimmern, Richman, Raichlen et al have all stopped in at Mueller’s barbecue trailer to eat from the table of the foul tempered Taylor, Texas native.
Surprisingly enough Mueller has yet to launch a missile dropkick out of the order window but we’ve got faith he’s just biding his time for now. And we’re still waiting for the battle between Mueller and Aaron Franklin to materialize. Challenges have been issued and accepted between both camps so hopefully the two can meet on the fifty yard line of DKR and settle the matter and determine who is the top pit boss in Austin Texas is.
Expect overflow crowds similar to what we would expect should the Sooners ever come to town.
