Dear barbecue buffs, fans, mavens, hounds, fanatics, cognoscenti, nuts, addicts, maniacs, aficionados, zealots, enthusiasts, devotes, groupies, and lovers:
Do you have a barbecue destination that you think is worthy of being on Texas Monthly’s “The Top Fifty BBQ Joints in Texas” list?
Now’s the time to tell us! Next year will mark the five-year anniversary of the last list, published in June 2008. Soon we will begin traveling and evaluating for the next top fifty feature, to be published in June of 2013. We don’t want anybody to feel like they didn’t have a chance to be considered.
If you’d like to give us a tip on a favorite place, please go to the comment section below. Mention the place and be SURE to tell us the address, city, and what your favorite dishes are. A phone number for the place would be helpful. Hours, too, if you know them.
We will automatically revisit the previous Top 50 (including Snow’s, Kreuz, Smitty’s, Louie Mueller’s, and City Market in Luling, and the other 45). Same goes for newly famous Franklin and JMueller, in Austin, which were on our February 2012 cover.
Let the nominating begin! (Photograph by LeAnn Mueller)
