So many choices, so little time. This is what Texas Monthly’s own the Texanist dreamed up for a true Texas barbecue tee slogan, and he graciously agreed to try one on for size. We know Dorothy and her friends would approve.

Celebrate your state in the best way with a brew and charcuterie spread loaded onto this solid walnut board by Waco Woodworks.
In the aftermath of consuming copious quantities of carne, a case of the meat sweats often follows. But with Texas barbecue, the real victory is in the fight, so there’ll be no shame in unfurling your white flag of surrender. Type has been screenprinted on white canvas.
Benji Jacob, the general manager of Franklin Barbecue, also played model for us during our photo shoot of the trays.
These indigo denim waist aprons in two colors were inspired by ranch work wear from the early 1900s. The print on the fabric has been hand-drawn and screen-printed for a perfectly imperfect dot pattern. This apron is an easy style for home cooks and only improves with more wears and washings. McGuire Moorman Hospitality's creative director Ryan Smith designed this product and is the genius behind the smart and comfortable vibes at some of our favorite Austin spots like Elizabeth Street Cafe, Lamberts, and Jeffrey’s, to name just a few.
This sweet pup is hoping for a bite from this impressive Lamberts Barbecue spread.
