Seriously the best BBQ you will ever have...

If you missed this meetup in the past, don't you dare miss it again this time around....In BBQ folklore, the name Mueller and Franklin tend to stand out nationwide, but especially here in Texas. The JMueller trailer is now named la Barbeque. Story has it, John was ousted and his sister LeeAnn took over. The important puzzle piece remained the same...John Lewis was and still is manning the Pit. John was Franklin's Former pitboss and mentored by Franklin, as well as Mueller.

la Barbecue was born of fire and controversy and has risen to the upper echelons of the barbecue world. They cook world class beef, pork, turkey and sausage in their custom fabricated smoker using local, perfectly seasoned post oak. Speaking of sausage, the sausage is hand made, in house, daily!

Since beer and barbecue go together like Forrest and Jenny, la Barbecue offers a free beer on the house. They serve up ice cold Lonestars while you wait. "Grab one from the cooler while you wait in line. Or two, if you’re feelin’ squirrely."

Live music will also be available for those that want to stick around and enjoy the day. BBQ, Beer and free live music.

"BYOB, BYOD and BYOL....That’s beer, dog and laptop, respectively."

They start serving at 11, but I'm scheduling the meetup for 10:30 so we don't have a very long wait and have the opportunity to taste all the goodies.

La Barbecue is located in the heart of South Austin at 1502 South 1st St, across from Elizabeth Street Cafe and Sway Thai. Onsite parking is available and additional street parking can be found on Monroe and Elizabeth streets.
