I just came across these two pictures that were taken in front of an Academy Sports store in Austin Texas. See all the shiny new SMOKERS? Not a gas grill in sight. This could be the only compelling reason for a New Yorker to move to Texas. At least it's the only one I can think of. Imagine being able to walk into a store and buy a smoker without having to explain to the clerk what one is? It would be heaven. But who knows with the proliferation of barbecue restaurants in New York City, maybe in 5 years I'll be able to! Here's hoping.
And here's another picture from Texas. It's a barbeque joint in Luling, but unfortunately I don't remember which one it is. Well, I just thought of another compelling reason to move to Texas, there are BBQ restaurants worth eating at in almost every town. It makes one wonder on this cold and snowy day.
