Not that Texas needs New York to tell us that our barbecue is better than sex. Still, it’s  nice to get a little love and see some mouthwatering pictures, particularly on New York magazine’s food blog, Grub Street. The ‘Street editors asked TM a few weeks back for our suggestions, so our barbecue partner Daniel Vaughn (aka the BBQ Snob) and Yours Truly put together a list of personal favorites to help them out (that’s why the list is spot-on). Check it out here; the Texas pictures are numbers 36 through 44. By the way, don’t forget, the second annual Texas Monthly BBQ Festival is coming up on Sunday, October 30. TICKETS GO ON SALE A WEEK FROM TOMORROW, PEOPLE. Click on the festival link. (Picture from Ruby’s, in Austin, by Daniel Hill.)
