Daniel Vaughn takes the reader on a most impressive tour of the Texas BBQ scene. He and his travel partner(s) divided the state into sections and spent considerable time and money as they journeyed from town to town. I found myself quite envious of his culinary experiences and travels, even on the stops which did not get good reviews. And I've learned a few things along his journey about how I can improve my own BBQ'ing. Mr. Vaughn went to Tulane and spent a few years in New Orleans. If he ever wants to go on a "Phophets of Po Boys" tour, I got shotgun.
