After searching for a few weeks and talking to a number of BBQ joints in Central Texas I have landed an apprenticeship. John Mueller has decided to take me under his wing at his new BBQ Joint JMueller BBQ which is opening in Austin, Texas on Monday September 26th.
John, the son of Bobby Mueller (Louie Mueller Barbecue) will be working me harder than I’ve ever worked before, but at the same time I’ll be immersed in the world of barbecue that I love and hopefully I’ll glean knowledge on how he makes his renowned brisket as well as his almost as famous sausage, beef and pork ribs, turkey and pork loin (included in this indoctrination will be a crash course in every other down and dirty aspect of working at a BBQ joint). He is being kind enough to let me sleep on his couch for a few months to get myself on my feet in Texas as I learn the ropes. I couldn’t be more appreciative of this unique opportunity.
So I hope you get a chance to stop by Austin to check us out in person and of course you’ll be able to keep progress of me and my experiences at JMueller BBQ here at my blog which I’ll continue to keep up to date, however it will focus a lot more of the comings and goings of the BBQ world from the inside out.
