We were at the State Fair yesterday and sat in on the demonstration by celebrity chef Jack Perkins. Jack is the guy who started a great Dallas burger joint called Maple and Motor. A nice stop for any meat-o-phile. Well he announced he will be opening a BBQ restaurant down in the design district on Irving Boulevard. If he does for BBQ what he has done for burgers I look forward to checking it out. I believe he said opening is planned for early next year.

Aaron Franklin has teamed up with Austin PBS station KLRU to produce a new "How to" BBQ TV show. They have a youtube page and an indiegogo contribution site to help pay for production. What a great combination of BBQ and public TV. I'm in! Thanks to my buddy Dave in Austin for the tip.
