Reports are starting to come into our inbox from readers who've sampled the barbecue from former Louie Mueller pit boss Lance Kirkpatrick at Stiles Switch Barbecue on North Lamar.

The consensus is good. Yes there are kinks to be worked out but it seems everyone is being fed well if not yet at the level of the output from John Mueller and Aaron Franklin.
