We <3 Bobby Mueller, and while our ‘cue honors his legacy, la Barbecue’s recipes are uniquely our own. Bobby liked it fast, but we cook our brisket low ‘n’ slow over Texas post oak for 14 to 16 hours. It’ll melt in your mouth! Forget about hormones and other crap in your meat. We source our beef from a local ranch, where it’s lovingly grass-fed and completely free of hormones. Trust us—you’ll taste the difference. And sure, our meat doesn’t need sauce slathered on top, but our sweet sauce pairs perfectly with the salty beef.
You do you, y’all.
