Texas Monthly Barbecue Editor Featured With
Newly Selected Top 50 Best BBQ Joints
On November 3 in Austin
To compile the hotly anticipated “Top 50” list for the June cover story, published every five years, Texas Monthly’s team of highly trained eaters scours the state for many months, looking for the top new barbecue restaurants and revisiting those on previous lists to ensure they continue to deserve to be among the best.
This year’s barbecue team has been led by longtime food editor Patricia Sharpe and the magazine’s new Barbecue Editor, Daniel Vaughn. Vaughn is the creator of the popular Texas blog Full Custom Gospel BBQ and well-known to barbecue aficionados by his Twitter handle @BBQsnob. He has eaten at more than 600 barbecue joints, the vast majority of them in Texas. In May his book, The Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey Through Texas Barbecue, will be released by Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
