The more I think about barbecue, the more I start thinking that it’s one of our most important road food traditions.  The reason that it remains vital, besides the fact it’s good, is that it cannot be tamed.  It can’t be gotten out of a can; it can’t be frozen ahead.  BBQ doesn’t negotiate, and it suffers fools badly.  Barbecue requires time, smoke, and above all, skill.  Which is why attempts to corporatize it ultimately fail.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Louie Mueller Barbecue

 MAIN FARE:Crew at Louie Mueller

  • "Gimme" piece - Was from the moist end, and it was GREAT!
  • Brisket - Not much of a smoke ring today, but nice smoke/meat balance.  Firm and lean (maybe too firm today).
  • Rib - The black pepper rub is spicy but good.  Got a smaller rib today - not much meat, but what is there is tender and good.
  • Sausage - The best.  Man, that is some good sausage!
  • Jalapeno Sausage - "Jal Yeah!"  I absolutely love this stuff.  You can see and smell the fresh peppers.
  • T-Bone - Same peppery rub.  Nice piece of meat.  Red, lean, and tender with a smoke ring right to the center.

OTHER FARE:

  • Chunk-o-cheese.  How can you go wrong with a big ole chunk of cheddar cheese?
  • Potato Salad - Fresh.  A potato salad that stands out from the rest.  

ATMOSPHERE:

  • This joint has the authentic atmoshpere that others try to copy!
  • Brisket and rib were good today, but the T-Bone and sausage(s) were better.
