New BBQ coming to Big D

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's New BBQ TV show

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.
