I just found this message board and thought some of you may be able to help me out. I'm part of a collection of Austin filmmakers making a documentary about Texas BBQ, the joints, the people and the culture. So far we have filmed at New Zion in Huntsville, Smitty's and Kreuz in Lockhart, and the Mosquito festival in Clute. Cooper's and Louie Mueller's are also on our list.
What we are trying to find are barbecue joints that tell stories or have some unique appeal other than great food. Of course if the BBQ isn't good then it has to be a really good story. Specifically we are searching for places in West Texas, the Dallas area, and any joints that may have a mexican flare.
Any help would be appreciated. If you're interested in tracking our progress you can visit the website at www.bbqfilm.com. Also feel free to come to our shoots and tell us why you love barbecue and why it is so integral to the lives of Texans.
