Nothing says the Holidays like hoisting a wide variety of animals onto wood burning barbecue pits. The good folks up at Stiles Switch are throwing animal consumption parties during the 12 days of Christmas this year.
Austin is awash in bad barbecue. The number of outlets where you can eat smoked meat has quadrupled in the last couple years but most range in quality from terrible to barely edible.
Masters of wood fire based cooking are few and far between. John Lewis, Aaron Franklin and Lance Kirkpatrick are leading the charge in Austin proper with x-urb pitbosses like Scott Morales and Tony White doing good work outside our city limits. Below are the holiday meat specials Stiles Switch has conjured to help Austin get in the Christmas spirit. Pit boss Lance Kirkpatrick is one of the top guns in Central Texas so we have no doubt a lot of time, energy and effort will be put into properly rendering these creatures via post oak fires.
