Food Network Still Likes BBQ
In case you didn't know it, besides being a TV Star and Chef. Guy Fieri is a big BBQ fan. He even competes. Here's a story about how he's turning the media spotlight on one of the Cathedrals of BBQ - Louie Mueller's.
Bobby Mueller is used to film crews and photographers in his Taylor restaurant.
“We’ve been on the Travel Channel, and we’ve got one in the works for PBS,” said Mueller, owner of Louie Mueller BBQ.
On Saturday, film crews from the Food Network program, “Diners, Drive ins and Dives,” will be at Louie Mueller’s from about 1:30 p.m. until early evening. Host of the show Guy Fieri will be going table to table, interviewing customers. The episode will air in the spring.
Everyone is welcome, Mueller says.
Regulars are accustomed to getting their photos taken for Texas Monthly magazine and other media, Mueller says, and they think nothing of the out-of-town customers, who make up about 80 percent of the barbecue joint’s business.
Mueller has never seen “Diners, Drive ins and Dives” and he doesn’t know if his restaurant will be considered a diner or a dive.
“It airs when I’m usually in church,” he said.
