Awesome food no doubt - if you're willing to wait a couple hours in line for it.
If not, try La Barbecue on South First, John Mueller's trailer on E. 6th and Perdenales, or Blue Ox BBQ off E. Riverside. All of them are incredibly good without the wait....

Not a scope but the mom of a good friend of mine went in for a knee replacement and was improperly given medication after the surgery and died. Slipped into a coma and never woke up so they had to make the decision to stop treatment.

Could not agree more. If you're willing to wait for a couple hours, go to Franklin's. If you just want to wait 30 minutes or so go to John Mueller's new place. No wait, go to a place called Blue Ox BBQ.

Here's an important tip - as shown in the Franklin videos, wrap in butcher paper (if you're going to wrap at all). IMHO this will make for a much better bark than using foil. One way to go is wrap at 180 (most likely after the stall) and go to 200 with it wrapped....

Yes on 12. 14 is a tough number but yes there too. With 16 and 4 pods, however, what if you want to do a conference semifinal game between 2 pod winners (so 8 teams between the two)? The waiver on a "championship game with less tha...
