Barbecue Lovers Get The Scoop On Where To Eat in Central Texas
Within a 30-mile radius of Austin, Texas, you'll find the Central Texas Barbecue Belt. For the first time, BBQ lover and Austinite Gloria Corral has gathered the goods on more than 70 local BBQ joints, sharing insider tips and tidbits. Corral gives up where to find smoky, tender beef brisket, colossal beef ribs and old-fashioned, hand-made German sausage,; whose meats are rubbed with a secret family spice mixture; who makes their own BBQ sauce; and what house specialties shouldn't be missed.
No pit was left out: brick brick-and and-mortar joints, trailers, buses, lean-to shacks, meat markets, famous family institutions, mom mom-and and-pop start-ups, and new hot spots tucked into night clubs. Corral has organized the book by area: Downtown, North, South, East, and West, and has included the surrounding areas from Georgetown to Taylor to Lexington to Lockhart to Dripping Springs. This handbook can be used to navigate to the best of the best.
The maps included in the book make it easy to plan a BBQ crawl with friends and to find the joints tucked off the beaten trail. How can one get around the Austin barbecue landscape without a guide? Barbecue Lover's Guide to Austin is available at Book People on North. Lamar and at Barnes and Noble.
As Chef and /Author Mark Miller (Coyote Café, Santa Fe) writes in the Foreword: , "Put on your best pair of well-worn cowboy boots, a pair of non-designer jeans, a real cowboy hat or an old tractor baseball cap, put the smart phone away, thumb through this guide, and get ready to experience real BBQ, Austin style."

About the Author
Gloria Corral has been a food enthusiast for as long as she can remember. Growing up in Ohio with family from Alabama, it was her Southern granny who taught her how to cook comfort food using vegetables from the family garden. In the early 1980s Gloria moved to San Francisco just in time for the food movement that ushered in the use of fresh fruits and vegetables. She spent her free time pursuing her passion for studying and cooking with local ingredients. In 2008, Gloria moved to Austin, Texas, and fell in love with the long-smoked meats that Texas barbecue practitioners produce for the many barbecue aficionados. As she got to know them, she was awed by these craftsmen and for their respect for tradition. This is her first book. She is presently working on the second edition of the Barbecue Lover's Guide to Austin with expanded content and recipes.
