I almost forgot to mention that this weekend is a big one here in the Sausage Capitol of Texas. Not only is it the Sausage Stampede (which I will not be running FYI), but it is Southside Market’s 125 year anniversary… check this out Statesman article . As you can see by the comments everyone has some strong opinions and feelings about their barbecue. Being a Yankee by birth I’m not gonna throw my hat in the ring. I might also mention that it was probably not in the best of taste or "Texas Friendly" to post disparaging words about the subject considering it’s a landmark anniversary and all. ’nuff said.
