Smoke is mysterious, fire is uncertain, and pit men are expensive. So the mystery, uncertainty, and expense of taking the chance to make great barbecue is being replaced by the quantifiable methods of always making pretty good 'cue.

Kruez Farewell Tour

Year: 
1999

Flames licking our toes at Old KreuzThis was a short 2-day tour to test the barbecue road trip theory.  It was timed to ensure that we got to sample Kruez market before Rick moved it up the street due to the Schmidt family feud.  This tour was based around Austin because it had the highest concentration of joints from the 1997 Texas Monthly s top 50 barbecue list.  Our goal was to hit as many as possible in two days.  

The tour was an unqualified success... 9 BBQ joints and a couple of beer joints in less than 48 hours!  Barrow's feedback: "Awesome.  But, I think it needs to be a 3-day tour."
