Texas & North Carolina: A BBQ Love Story

Props to my barbecue brother-in-arms (and shoulders and ribs), Daniel Vaughn of Texas Monthly, who traveled to North Carolina a few months back and writes about his experience here: http://www.tmbbq.com/finding-common-ground/

Daniel makes several good points in the article, not the least of which is his impassioned argument for outside brown and fatty brisket.  I couldn’t agree more.  Thanks for preaching the gospel, Brother Daniel.  You’re proof that Texas residents are capable of common decency and sound reasoning, despite numerous counter examples.  You are welcome back to the Tar Heel state anytime… so long as you bring me a Texas brisket offering.
