JMueller BBQ – September 22nd Update

I’ve been here in Texas just over 24 hours and have had what most people would call a ‘baptism by fire’ when it comes to the restaurant business. John has let me tag along for everything from product purchasing to making sure the BBQ trailer is up to par for the city of Austin. Well today we got word that we didn’t pass inspection due to a new rule about placement of propane tanks.

That sets us back past our hopeful opening date of Monday September 26th. We’ll be going for another inspection the week of the 26th and if all goes well after our fixes (which we believe it will) we’ll open shortly thereafter. It’s frustrating, but there’s not much we can do. I will continue to update daily on the progress of JMueller BBQ as well as posting later today with pics from my 1st day in Texas which included stops at two iconic BBQ locations (Louie Mueller Barbecue and The Taylor Cafe).

  1. If you go to Vencil’s Taylor Cafe’, be sure to allow enough time to let Vencil tell you war stories & give you a copy of the newspaper that has him in it (he will usually sign the paper for you as well).

  2. Code issues are a complete PITA. When we bought our office building in 2008, $30K of our renovation costs was literally moving toilets 1/2″ away from a wall, moving a second foyer door and wall 6″ away from the other.

    Just hoops to jump through. Keep up the good work.
